Presented is a gorgeous ultra high-grade complete set of 1972 Topps baseball cards, one of the most popular Topps sets of the decade. An incredible 687 cards have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for twenty-three SGC and sixteen BVG). This represents 87% of the entire set! Included within are a staggering 348 MINT 9s, 45 NM-MT+ 8.5s, and 283 NM-MT 8s. It is possible that within this incredible assortment of MINT cards are even a few candidates for GEM MINT! This is one of the finest set we have ever offered of this classic early 1970s Topps issue. The 1972 Topps set features all the stars of the era, but in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again in special in-action cards.

The balance of the set is ungraded and ranges in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt, with light touches of wear at the corners or centering responsible for the technically-accurate assigned grades despite a crisp, high-grade overall appearance. This set has been assembled with great care over a period of many years, with a concern for all factors including centering. The emphasis on spectacular condition is evident throughout. This is a simply amazing ultra high-grade complete set. The total SMR value in the assigned grades (factoring in the forty-five half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $14,183. This figure, in our opinion, may be conservative given the many condition rarities included within that routinely sell for significant premiums to their modest SMR value. Total: 787 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+. SOLD FOR $16,800
