Default Looking for comps, 1979 Hostess Twinkies box (Schmidt, Garvey, Mazzili)

I am having a hard time finding sold comps for 1979 full box hostess Twinkies with Schmidt, Garvey and Mazzilli.

I dont collect these and wonder if I am not using correct search terms for this one - anyone able to connect me to value via recent sold comps?

Thx for any help -

Jeff

The price for the full box is similar to a full panel. You can add whatever premium you think a full box deserves. An ebay search for "1979 hostess panel schmidt garvey" will give you a good set of results.

Echoing above, there's not a big premium for a complete box since very few people collect them that way. Most likely someone will buy it based on the panel's condition and cut it down.

Unlike cereal boxes the sizes of Hostess boxes are all over the place making them impossible to store as is.

Based on the pictures you posted in the thread in the other section, that's an amazing display piece. Are the original twinkies actually still in there?

Would be a shame to cut it down or even flatten it. Can't be many in that format still out there. Love that Rice and Guidry are also on the box. The two dominant players from the season before.

Ha, no 44 year old Twinkies in there!

A while back, my girlfriend turned me on to a show where some guy seeks out tremendously old, unopened food items to purchase and then eat (while filming his exploits, obviously). Things like WWII rations and such, maybe hard tack from the Civil War, and all sorts of odd things from the 50's through 80's. That was cool (she won't eat anything past its 'best buy' date, no matter how many times I scream at her, "Unless it's meat, dairy, or a few other things, those 'expiration dates' don't mean a thing!!!!").

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980s.

A while ago, I had a pack of hostess cupcakes. didn't eat the second one for some reason, and it got behind a box on a shelf.
Fast forward a year+, found it, and it wasn't looking bad. Still soft, still had all the "frosting" Let it stay there a while.

Got rid of it at about 4 years? ish? A bit of the frosting had broken off, but otherwise it still appeared fine. Wouldn't go anywhere near eating it, but it seemed fine.

Are you talking about this guy? Fascinating stuff, and what's great is that it's all done very seriously - it's not done flippantly or for laughs or anything like that.
