1970 Topps Complete Set (720) Including SGC MINT 96 Thurman Munson Rookie!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $8,400

55% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (including some Mint), 31% Ex-Mt, and 14% 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 from an old-time collection, 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 five cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Mets Team (Ex-Mt+), 140 Jackson (NM/MT+ 92), 189 Munson RC (MINT 96), 300 Seaver (Nr/Mt+), 350 Clemente (5/95 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 500 Aaron (NM 84), 580 Rose (5/95 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 600 Mays (NM+ 86), 630 Banks (NM/MT+ 92), 640 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 660 Bench (Ex-Mt), 700 F. Robinson (Ex+), and 712 Ryan (Nr/Mt). 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 just the five graded cards (factoring in the three half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the 715 ungraded cards!) is $1,462. Total: 720 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $8,400
