1985 Topps Baseball Vending Boxes

wrightywrighty Posts: 837 ✭✭✭✭

I bought a large collection and there were a number of 1985 vending boxes. I’m not an unopened expert and have mostly purchased BBCE wrapped in the past. The pattern on these boxes looks consistent with them being original and unsearched to my untrained eye but I would like opinions from those more knowledgeable than me before I put them up for sale. I appreciate any input. Thank you in advance Jeff

    That's a nice zebra stripe pattern.

    Looks as legit as you can hope.

    They look ok from the pics but best way if all from the same source is to crack a box and confirm for yourself as vending can also be searched without disturbing the striping, too.

    It looks right, but there is only one way to know for sure...

    Do you have before pics of the two boxes? Now that we know box 1 was likely searched, it'll be interesting to see the vending pattern on that one.
