Default 1974 Topps promo shot

Don't know if this has shown up here before (probably has), but it was new to me.

A great promotional shot from Topps circa 1974 showing all kinds of their product, from baseball cards to wacky packages

Yeah, I've seen that before. I always liked these two that someone took the time to colorize. The first is 1952 and the second 1953.

There is another well known 1974 photo of a Topps plant assembly line.

I see the red wax boxes on the assembly line to the right of the picture, what are in the green boxes on the left assembly line, racks?

I don't know why, but this made me think of the movies that show drug packaging rooms where the people (usually women) are all semi nude to prevent theft. Cards are big bucks now. Wonder what an assembly line for cards would look like now?
