1972 Topps Partial Set (505/787) Plus 1,313 Duplicates
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,600
Presented is an extremely substantial collection of 1,818 cards from the 1972 Topps set, one of the most popular Topps sets of the decade. These cards have been consigned by the family of the original owner, who very likely collected them out of packs in the year of issue and carefully saved them for decades. A total of 505 different cards are represented in a partial set, with 1,313 total duplicates. More than eighty Hall of Famers are present within this collection, as well as numerous other stars and high numbers, many of which appear with heavy duplication. Partial Set (505/787): Condition is 65% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt) and 35% Ex (including some lesser). Many of the cards grading Ex or lower are downgraded due to varying degrees of faint staining in the corners.
