    Description

    1955 BOWMAN 1C DISPLAY BOX AND WRAPPER. Let's start with the wrapper this time - it's nearly perfect.  It came off a roll and has never been folded into pack form.  As a result, it does not even have the typical folds.  It is exceedingly rare to find any wrapper in this form.  The box likely originated from the famous Mr. Mint 1986 Paris TN find.  It is a two-piece Velveeta style box.  The box has a bit of patina on the right side of the top panel and the "OK 400" written in ink pen on the top panel.  Othewise, it's a very solid box that would easily rate a 7 on a 1-10 scale.  Virtually all the '50's baseball boxes/wrappers are in high demand and low supply - it may be a while before you see these items again.
