That sure must be awesome to break a pack that is over 50 years old.

Thank you all for the replies. It was a sweet break and something I've always wanted to do. I've had it since last year sitting idle and decided to relieve some stress after dealing with my x-wife that evening.

chiefs-the cards were not stuck together and typically for vintage packs, mold/mildew and gum seepage is the main culprit to cause such damage. Cellos don't have the gum issue(changed in the 70's) and you can see the cards for other noticeable condition issues. The drawback is sequencing, even for older packs like these, longtime/experienced collectors have this knowledge(which sucks IMO). For modern cards, the glossy finish or gold foil can also cause the cards to stick if the conditions they've been stored in were not ideal.
Stadium Club and Fleer Ultra in the nineties come to mind.

Coolest break I have ever seen here. Thanks for posting. Sure you didnt get a NM Mantle, but I can only imagine how you felt peeling the wrapper to reveal the first card back.

RE: 1959 Topps cello break. New Pics
I won it last year for about $450 in ebay auction, it was expensive but it was my "Exquisite box". The potential to pull PSA 9's and 10's are what reeled me into the auction. I wanted to start getting my breaks on video so I waited until I got a video camera. Previously I broke about 5 1972 Topps football packs, 2 1959 Topps football cellos, and 12 1975 Topps baseball cellos with no video to share the experience. I'll be posting the videos on YouTube somewhere down the road. Lastly, I believe I pulled one or two nines with the rest of them mainly PSA 8's. The fact that I pulled an Aparicio made it worth it. If it was centered it could have been a 2K+ card.
