1974 Topps Near-Complete Set (632/660) Plus 2,901 Duplicates Including 120 Hall of Famers
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440
Presented is an extremely substantial collection of more than 3,500 cards from the 1974 Topps set, one of the most popular Topps sets of the decade. Also included are eight complete Topps Traded sets plus 415 duplicates as well as 100 Topps Team Checklists. 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 632 different cards are represented in the partial set, with 2,901 total duplicates. More than 120 Hall of Famers are present within this collection, as well as numerous other stars and key cards, many of which appear with heavy duplication. The collection of Topps cards grades 46% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 47% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 7% lower overall. The Traded sets and singles and Team Checklists grade 77% Ex to Ex-Mt (including some better) and 23% lower (mostly due to centering). Keys: Seven #10 Bench (two Nr/Mt-Mt, Nr/Mt, Ex-Mt, Ex, two miscut), two 20 Ryan (Nr/Mt, Ex-Mt), 252 Parker RC (Nr/Mt-Mt), 283 Schmidt (5/95 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), five 300 Rose (two Nr/Mt, Ex-Mt, two Ex+), 340 Munson (Nr/Mt+), six 456 Winfield RC (Nr/Mt-Mt+, two Nr/Mt, two Ex-Mt, Fr), and five 654a Alou (Nr/Mt-Mt+, four Nr/Mt+). This is a tremendous collection of 1974 Topps cards with many impressive highlights. Total: 3,533 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.SOLD FOR $1,440
