We expect this auction to break all MHCC records for sales,” said MHCC CEO and President Brian Drent.  

“Beer Box II” looks to be even stronger than the original and is led by a spectacular 1965 Topps Football Full Unopened Wax Box, the only complete box known to exist. There’s also a nearly full 1965 Topps football wax box (21/24), with other highlights including 1960 Leaf Baseball Full Unopened Wax Box, 1962 Topps Baseball Bucks Nearly Full Unopened Wax Box (119/120), two 1964 Topps Football Nearly Full Unopened Wax boxes (23/24 and 19/24), 1964 Topps Baseball Photo Tattoos Nearly Full Unopened Wax Box (103/120), 1971 Topps Baseball Nearly Full First Series Unopened Wax Box (23/24), and the only known 1968 Topps Test Basketball Unopened Pack. All have been evaluated and authenticated by Baseball Card Exchange (BBCE).
