Here's a great offering, a 1980-81 Topps Basketball box with original 36 unopened packs from the year that features the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson rookie card, with Julius Erving. The box is not sealed but every one of the 36 packs is, retaining the chance to pull the one of the most sought-after rookie cards in immaculate condition. The five-figure price tag for a PSA 10 version of the Bird, Magic, Erving card makes this well worth the risk, with 36 packs at eight cards each leaving 288 opportunities. While there are no guarantees as to which cards are in the packs, each card will be "pack fresh" and ready to be graded. Box has some shelf wear but still displays nicely.
