1969 to 1974 Topps Basketball Complete Sets (4 Sets, 802 Cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,800

Outstanding collection of four Topps Basketball complete sets spanning the years 1969 to 1974. Beautiful, mostly very high-grade complete sets of these Topps basketball classics. Though they do not have as many cards as the Topps baseball sets of the era, and are not as valuable, these basketball sets are actually rarer than their baseball counterparts. Each set is loaded with all the great stars and Hall of Famers of the era. 1) 1969-1970 Topps (99 cards): 82% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few higher) and 18% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a couple lower).
