Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,600

Exceptional complete set run of 1970 through 1979 Topps baseball cards (missing only the 1971 Topps set, which is offered individually in this auction due to its exceptionally high grade). These cards are starting "to have some age" to them! To us, it seems as if these cards were just released yesterday, but the fact is that it's been over forty years in some cases. Consigned from an old-time collection! We have selected four cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) 1970 Topps Complete Set (720): 42% Ex-Mt or better, 53% Ex, and 5% Vg to Vg-Ex.
