Lot #75: 1979/80 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Unopened Wax Box (48 Packs) – BBCE Certified


Wayne Gretzky's rookie year! This highly displayable counter-sales box contains 48 unopened, 20¢ wax packs of the blue-bordered classic that showcased the mega-star's first appearance, as well as such luminaries as #'s 175 Howe, 185 Hull and loads of valuable Team and Leaders cards. The packs, billed as "Giant" on the strength of their 14-cards per pack content, hold the very scarce and immensely irresistible O-Pee-Chee version of the 1979/80 series, which was distributed only in Canada. How many Mint superstars are hiding inside these crisply preserved packs, and how many of the sport's "ultimate" rookie cards (#18 Wayne Gretzky) will emerge? The fully intact box exhibits a strip of clear adhesive tape that was placed at the factory to secure the lid, and is protected within sealed "Baseball Card Exchange" plastic wrapping (with descriptive BBCE label, Cert. #X0200).
