The Ultimate 1959 Topps Football Display Box And Wrapper Collection

This photo of “The Ultimate 1959 Topps Football Display Box and Wrapper Collection” is from a May 2000 auction catalog.

Tracking down a 1-cent and 5-cent display box along with those three wrapper variations wouldn’t be easy today, particularly in a single lot.

But for a truly complete unopened run, you’d need to track down full packs, a cello pack/box, and a vending box—and it won’t be cheap; REA sold the following 1959 Topps football cello box for $81k in 2021. 

I’ve never seen any 1959 Topps football cases, so I wonder if any (empty) exist. If you know of one, let me know.
