1980 to 1986 Topps Football Complete Set Collection (12 sets, 3,521 cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

Substantial collection of twelve complete Topps football sets spanning the years 1980 through 1986. Though they do not have as many cards as the Topps baseball sets of the era, and are not as valuable, these football sets are actually scarcer than their baseball counterparts. Each set is loaded with all the great stars and Hall of Famers of the decade, including several key Hall of Fame rookie cards. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1980 Topps Complete Set (528 cards): Condition is Ex to Nr/Mt.
