    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
