Dubbed “The Beer Box Find” by the media for being stored in a 1960’s Stroh’s beer box, the collection was led by a nearly full 1948 Bowman baseball wax box that netted just over $900,000 in total sales. Now Mile High Card Company is ready to present the sequel, even bigger and better than the original. With an incredible 1965 Topps football complete wax box leading the way and the addition of significant unopened material from the non-sports side of the hobby, the September MHCC auction will be the grand unveiling of “Beer Box II.”
As well, a nearly full 1965 Topps football wax box (21/24) will also be offered, as well as a 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.
