One of the more popular aspects of card collecting is pairing your sports card sets with the original wrappers and boxes in which the cards were sold. Here we have one of the most visual display boxes in Topps’ history, complete with images of the game’s best players of that era—Sandy Koufax, Harmon Killebrew, and Mickey Mantle. In addition, the box includes an applied sticker indicating the cards included within are the “FINAL SERIES.” The box displays well with the top flap perforation almost fully intact, only a small corner portion has been popped. There is some shelf wear and a few lighter wrinkles on the top, and one light crease on the bottom panel. In addition, there are very light impressions on the top panel due to some pencil writing, which has been erased. With the high number series in 1965 produced in significantly lesser quantities, the boxes which include the “FINAL SERIES” sticker are quite scarce. Excellent/Mint overall condition.
