    MARVEL GUM UNOPENED BOX 1978. In the scarcer horizontal format is presented a full, sealed box from Topps’ 1978 release, "Marvel" comics. Still tightly wrapped in its color cellophane foil, it remains virtually fault. The box measures 5 1/2" x 3 5/8" x 1 3/8", and conceals 36 units of bubblegum (no saccharin!), each wrapped by a fold-out Marvel comic episode. This is the original 34 different production, not to be confused with the disappointing sequel of 1979. To be fully critical, a minor ding is evident in the upper left corner, probably incurred in shipment, and we therefore conservatively assess this weighty little box as NM.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
