(LOT 33)
1953 Topps Baseball Wax Pack 5-Cent PSA 5 EX

SCARCE 1953 WAX!!! To follow up the ground-breaking and substantial 1952 Topps landmark baseball set, the company produced the equally breathtaking 1953 Topps edition, featuring 274 issues of stars, Hall of Famers, rookies and more. Equal in size at 2-5/8" x 3-3/4" to the 1952 release, these lithographic images of players appear just short of being hailed as works of art. Anchored by the likes of Mickey Mantle, Roy Campanella, Willie Mays, Yogi Berra, Eddie Mathews, Bob Feller, Pee Wee Reese, 45-year-old flamethrower Satchel Paige, and the immortal Jackie Robinson residing on the #1 card in the set. Missing only Ted Williams who was serving his country in Korea, the 1953 Topps set is one of the most sought-after, star-filled issues in the hobby. Presented here is a 1953 Topps Wax Pack holdered 5 EX by PSA. Of the 12 packs graded by PSA, this is one of only seven 5-cent variations graded with only a single pack graded higher. The rarity of this pack cannot be overstated and the potential cannot be understated. Displaying light soiling throughout and minor storage wear visible at the bottom corners, though the reverse enclosure remains intact. This is an awesome opportunity to add a rare unopened wax pack and elevate your high-end collection.
