1952 Topps Baseball High Number Empty Case - WOW!!!!
Possibly the greatest baseball card artifact in the history of the world!
This one of a kind original Topps empty wax case has to be the only one left in existence. This case held 24 boxes (24 packs per box) of 1952 Topps baseball cards for the extremely rare High Series.
Virtually every graded PSA 9 or 10 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle came from this specific case! With Mantle's 1952 Topps #311 being double printed, an average case of 1952 Topps Baseball High Numbers would contain 50 or more pristine Mantles. The case was originally from Mr. Mint's 1952 Topps Find in Boston, MA that yielded an incredible amount of gem mint high numbers.
What makes 1952 Topps Baseball even more interesting is the infamous story that goes along with the high numbers. With the product sitting stagnant on dime store shelves Topps ended up having trouble selling their inventory of cases. To get rid of them Topps ended up dumping hundreds of cases into the ocean off of the coast of New Jersey!
Created by the "Father of Modern Baseball Cards" Sy Berger, 1952 Topps remains one of the most popular sets of all time. Even an empty case is an absolutely beautiful sight to see!
