Grocery Tray

I’ve never seen one of these in person, but I have read that Topps made tray packs starting in the 1950s to sell multiple packs at a discount, but they didn’t make any in quantity until late in the 1970s, so earlier ones are scarce. This one is BBCE wrapped.

Rack (Rak) Pack

Rack Packs before 1968 came with three twelve-card cellos, side by side by side as the examples that follow exhibit. However, I’ve read that the in-color pack is damaged with the cellophane completely open on the bottom of two cellos, so it’s perhaps suspect. The black and white example is a photo from Darren Prince’s Ultimate Sports Unopened Wax Pack Price Guide (circa 1994). Both packs exhibit features similar to the sell sheet presented at the bottom of this post.

I have images of what I think is a 1961 Topps Penny Case and a 1961 Topps Five Cent Case, but I need confirmation from more sources before I post them.
