Topps Sports Card Locker

I found a cool item over at Cedar Cliff Collectibles a while ago.  I had never seen one before.

It's a Topps Sports Card Locker.  It was a mail-away item from Topps in the late 1970's and 1980.  Mail in details were printed on wax pack wrappers.  It was $5.25 plus 75 cents for handling.

This one came stocked with about 700 cards, mostly from 1980, but a few from 1979.  I'm going to leave the cards in it, which were carefully collated by team by the previous owner.  I'm also going to buy a few empty wax wrappers from 1980 to display with it.

It's like a time machine to a different era of collecting!
