    Description

    WIFFLE BALL RETAIL BOX. And for good measure, the box still holds four of its original six retail units. These things were the rage of the early ‘60’s. Unpredictable, fast, yet safe for play anywhere by just about anybody, these "wiffle balls" sold by the million. But if ever there was a perishable retail packaging, this is it. To stimulate sales, endorsements from Vern Law and Roger Maris were procured, suggesting that this was a 1961 marketing campaign. In any event, one of those 6-unit retail boxes has survived for today’s reader. Three of its four internal reinforcing flaps are secured by single staples which were probably not placed when originally packaged. As well, in order to secure the box’s form, clear tape has been applied at the bottom and at the front right corner. The images of Law and Maris are well-preserved as is the lid. Though the perforation has been carefully broken, the hinges are virgin and the lid’s surface is remarkably clean. The four balls within all remain in their original retail boxes which are minimally EX. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
