Topps' 'NEW Funny Valentines' continues the ritual of corny classroom Valentine's Day cards. Topps first seized on the idea in 1959 and produced 'Funny Valentines' cards, a collection of silly gags, fun artwork and a bit of a rebel attitude. The idea proved so popular that in 1960 Topps again produced a 'Funny Valentines' set (aka 'NEW Funny Valentines'). Both sets feature the artwork of Jack Davis; 'NEW Valentines' is distinguished from the first set by the "A" appended to the card numbers. Offered here is a FULL box of unopened 'NEW Funny Valentines' packs, in the rarer 36-count format (Canadian issue?), in 5¢ pack form. The box and its contents have been authenticated and sealed by Steve Hart of Baseball Card Exchange ('BBCE'). The box itself displays minimally as EX-MT (the perforated top has not even been broken), and one can safely assume that the contents are in near-untouched condition. A great high-grade non-sport collectible!
