DescriptionBeatles - Three Topps Trading Card Guild Display Boxes (US, 1964).
Three identical empty 7.25" x 5.25" x 2" generic "Hobby Cards" boxes advertising "10¢ per pack". These boxes have three different stickers on the spine: 1) Has "The Beatles' (with drawn pictures of the Fab Four's heads); 2) Has "Beatles Movie / 'A Hard Day's Night'" on a marquee; 3) Has "Beatles / Color Photos". Topps Chewing Gum created the Trading Card Guild in the early 1950s in order to market their cards to more "upscale" outlets with a 10¢ price for a different pack instead of 5¢. The boxes would just be labeled on the front with whatever was inside. Extremely rare. Fair condition with tears on the sides of two of the boxes. From the Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatle Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
