1970 Topps Complete Set (720)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $6,000

52% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 38% Ex-Mt, and 10% Ex. Crisp, clean, exceptionally high-grade complete 1970 Topps set. At 720 cards, the 1970 Topps set was the largest set of Topps cards issued to date. Consigned by the family of an old-time collector, this set has been carefully stored away for decades and was very likely assembled directly out of packs in the year of issue. This is a beautiful set with many extremely high-grade cards. We have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Mets Team (Ex+), 140 Jackson (Nr/Mt), 189 Munson RC (NM/MT 88), 300 Seaver (Nr/Mt+), 350 Clemente (NM+ 86), 500 Aaron (NM 84), 580 Rose (NM+ 86), 600 Mays (NM+ 86), 630 Banks (Nr/Mt), 640 Kaline (Ex), 660 Bench (Nr/Mt), 700 F. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 712 Ryan (NM/MT 88). Also included are four checklist variations for cards #343, 432, 542, and 588. This is a very attractive complete set in exceptionally high grade. Almost all of the cards graded Ex and Ex-Mt are downgraded entirely due to centering. The equivalent SMR value for the six graded cards (factoring in the three half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $720. Total: 724 cards (complete set of 720 plus four variations). SOLD FOR $6,000
