When this product was originally issued, it was largely ignored by collectors despite ending a drought of mainstream basketball products dating to when Topps left the marking after 1981-82. It's a different story today as this insanely rare box is among the most desirable of any product for collectors hoping to pull Gem Mint singles, or even the investor who wants to tuck it away and pay for their kids' college some day. With the value of Michael Jordan RC going through the roof and these 36-pack boxes having a great shot at multiple Jordan's, along with many other key rookies and the sticker set, the boxes have continued to climb in value and appear far away from their peak. While Jordan's rookie is the main draw, other top flight rookies include: Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Joe Dumars, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, Hakeen Olajuwon, Isiah Thomas, Dominique Wilkins and James Worth, along with HOFers like Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This 36-pack wax box is authenticated and sealed by Steve Hart of Baseball Card Exchange and grants the winner one of the best chances to get Gem Mint singles of many of these cards, including MJ's RC.
