I have some old topps wax boxes from the 70's (maybe early 80's.) Basically, just from series 1 thru 5 of ANH. I've had some (maybe all) of these wax boxes since the 90s. Now, here's the thing: I was buying many of these before ebay existed, so I'd buy them by calling up various dealers (mostly, those that advertised in "non-sport authority" I think it was called.) I started by buying loose packs - but I would open those packs because I was trying to put together a truly mint set. Some of those packs turned out to be phonies (they would have charlie's angels cards in them instead, or cards that were obviously heavily "used"). This got me a bit paranoid. So, when I started buying wax boxes, I would always carefully open one or two packs to make sure I wasn't getting conned. So, my questions are: a) does this ruin the value of the wax boxes? and b) can these wax boxes be authenticated and cased for selling, similar to what afa or cgc does?
