Thirty-six 1979 Topps Factory-Vending Complete Sets (26,136 cards)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $5,581

Tremendous collection of thirty-six complete sets comprised of 1979 Topps baseball (726 cards per set). All 26,136 Topps cards comprising these thirty-six sets were sorted directly from 1979 factory-vending cases in the year of issue. Our consignor, a longtime hobbyist (who as a professional photographer was responsible for hundreds of photos that appeared on baseball cards in the 1970s and 1980s) purchased these sets in their year of issue and has had them safely stored away for over thirty years! These are virtually untouched sets. The sets grade 98% Nr/Mt or better, 2% Ex-Mt, with the normal number of off-center cards that are to be expected. Collection consists of thirty-six complete sets of 1979 Topps (726 cards per set). Total 26,136 cards (thirty-six complete sets). Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open).
SOLD FOR $5,581
