wrapping wax packs

All of the wax packs are hand folded.  A board holding the 36 stacks of 7 cards each are brought to the wrapping station, and crack trained personnel utilize the official folding method. This reproduces the set of creases and folds of the vintage (pre-1990) packs.

Before 1991, folded wax paper wrappers was the norm for trading cards.  Around 1990 the first cellophane wrapped packs started appearing, and soon the foil end crimp packs.  I have been on the hunt for an automatic folding machine, but have not found one yet.  The closest I have come is Chicago 1996.  I spoke with an executive with General Packaging, who said their last wrapping machine was broken up for scrap metal that year.
