The unopened packs definitely have value.Going through the closets I found a box of brand new baseball cards from 1972 including a lot of unopened "packs of 5 cards" with the bubblegum stick still inside (the pack you'd buy from stores back then). So, it's a mystery as to what 5 cards are actually in the wrapper. Ever heard of that kind of deal going up for sale - I wouldn't know what specific cards I was selling (other than for sure mint condition cards from '72) and the buyer wouldn't know what they got unless they open up the pack.
Caveat, I would not take it for granted that all the contents are in "mint condition". The gum has a high chance of damaging the card(s) next to it. Same with the card on the bottom if it's a wax pack.
'72 Topps is a classic looking card in my opinion.
