If there were no known packs before, you'd think the person selling these would have been better off releasing these to market over time, rather than the entire box at once. Obviously there may be more factors at play here, but an interesting aspect to consider.

I wonder what a 'unique' unopened pack would have went for vs. the avg price per pack of the entire box once it is auctioned.

Those packs look weird to me, too. What I question is how roached out the box is but the packs look so nice. Seems to me the packs on each edge would suffer some of the same consequences of age and being knocked round, albeit to a lesser degree since it is the job of the box to protect the packs.

yeah, the box and the packs conditions aren't even remotely the same

Default Unopened 1948 Bowman baseball=My Holy Grail!

Ted Z. told me that the gum is the same size as the 48' cards, albeit
thicker. He opened them as a kid! Also the article states, packs have
5 cards and 3 sticks gum? Ted Z. will know, hopefully he will set us straight
on the facts. Amazing to see such an awesome find. I have dreamed/ wondered
for many years if unopened 48' baseball packs existed. Stoked to see them!
