Sports card cello boxes for sale

Cello boxes refer to the clear paper packaging that companies like Topps used to make oversized packs of sports cards.

Commonly used from the 1960s-late 1980s, cello packs were a Topps staple in the 70s.  Most wax packs cost 10 cents in the early and mid-70s, while cello packs contained about three times as many cards and sold for 25-30 cents per pack.  Very old cello packs often contained 10-15 cards since baseball card wax packs often had only 5-8 cards inside.

Of course, the great fun in cello packs was going to the store and actually being able to see two of the cards you were getting (the one on the front and the one on the back).  The gum was usually sandwiched somewhere in the middle.

The packs were often wrapped quite tightly, which has led to some light corner damage, especially in packs that have been around for awhile.  Sometimes, the clear wrappers were not as tight, however, and the cards inside survived quite beautifully with no wax residue to contend with.

Cello packs sometimes contained exclusive cards or inserts.

Typically they were packaged 24 to a box and prices were slightly higher than a regular 36-count box of wax packs
