Lot #21: 1971 Topps Baseball Unopened Vending Box (2nd Series) – Direct from Fritsch Vault (Fritsch LOA)

Description

An unopened 500-Count vending box is presented. This very scarce "time capsule" contains wholly undisturbed collectibles from the impossibly delicate, black-bordered 1971 Topps Baseball issue. The box holds never-touched cards from the issue's 2nd Series (#'s 133-263), which includes Tom Seaver and Johnny Bench. Vintage unopened vending boxes are seldom offered, and they're becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in today's market. Direct from the Fritsch Vault (still sealed and untampered-with in its protective white box), and accompanied by Fritsch LOA.

Please Note: As requested by the consignor, photos of this box were taken by Fritsch before the box was shipped to the consignor. Those images have been provided by the consignor, and they are displayed with this lot. An additional image (also shown) reveals the exterior packaging, supplied by Fritsch, that was used for shipping to the consignor.
