1956 Topps Elvis Presley Gum Card Unopened Wax Pack:
Exceedingly Rare 5-cent type:
The majority of these super rare packs have entered the market through a single wax box find over a decade ago. Unlike the one-cent wrappers for the series, the five-cent version is not made of wax, but of a printed layered cello material with a fragile rice paper like texture. These wrappers were often used by Topps for many five-cent packs in the 50s’: Davy Crockett, Rails and Sails, Robin Hood, and Zorro, and were very delicate; often tearing when opened
The attractive encasement provided by GAI not only guarantees this specimen to be genuine unopened material, but further enhances the presentation for display.
