Curious, what's the oldest unopened pack - cello, rack, wax - known to exist (with the exception of t206 packs that MAY contain cards.)?

Were Topps Venezuelans distributed via wax packs, ever seen any for sale? What about 1965-1969 OPC, ever see any of those?

64standup,

I believe the oldest known unopened pack was an Old Judge cigarette pack from 1887 that contained a card of Mansfield player, Charles Alcott. It was opened in SGC's presence and the card was assigned a grade of Gem 98.
