1980 Topps Basketball Wax Pack is the Perfect Bracket Break

1980 Topps Basketball Wax Pack is the Perfect Bracket Break

The NCAA Tournament is underway, and we have the perfect break available to couple with your bracket fun! 

With the first-round games of the NCAA tournament on, we stocked up the VB card breaks with a phenomenal hoops break to join in on between checking your brackets.

The 1979 NCAA tournament finals pitted the Indiana State Sycamores against the Michigan State Spartans. Indiana State was 33-0 heading into the championship, but came up just short, losing 75-64 to Michigan State. A pair of players on the court for the final went on to change the landscape of the NBA: Magic Johnson (Michigan State) and Larry Bird (Indiana State).

Bird was drafted 6th in 1978 and Magic first in 1979. Each went on to win three NBA MVP awards, multiple championships, and were enshrined into the Hall of Fame. Not only are the two linked to the 1979 National Championship game, each appear on the same rookie card!

1980-81 Topps basketball cards were created with three "mini" cards into one. Each card is the standard size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, with three players on each card. The cards are perforated to rip into thirds. Of course, today we know better and opt NOT to rip the cards! Topps smartly created one card with both Larry Bird and Magic Johnson on the same rookie card! These legends sandwich another great in Dr. J, Julius Erving. Both rookies on the same card with Dr. J?! THAT is the card to pull while you check your bracket.

You can get a spot in this 1980 Topps basketball wax pack break for $150 HERE.



Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.
