Lot # 1196 (1196 of 1911)   « Previous Lot | Next Lot »

Four 1978 Topps Complete Sets (2,904 Cards) Plus 4,296 Duplicates Including 185 Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,440

Presented is an extremely substantial collection of more than 7,000 cards from the 1978 Topps set, one of the most popular Topps sets of the decade. Included are four complete sets plus 4,296 duplicates (naturally, several partial sets could be assembled from these, the most complete of which stands at 702 different cards). 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. Hundreds of Hall of Famers are present within this collection, as well as numerous other stars and key cards, many of which appear with heavy duplication. Condition is 80% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (including some better), 16% Ex to Ex-Mt (mostly due to centering), and 4% lower (mostly due to spider wrinkles). Keys: Thirteen #20 Rose (two Nr/Mt-Mt+, four Nr/Mt-Mt, four Nr/Mt, two Ex-Mt, Vg-Ex), ten 36 Murray RC (two Nr/Mt-Mt; two Nr/Mt; Ex-Mt; two Ex; three 10/90 or worse L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), four 400 Ryan (two Ex-Mt, Ex+, Ex), and nine 707 Molitor/Trammell RC (seven Nr/Mt; Ex-Mt; 10/90 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt+). This is a tremendous collection of 1978 Topps cards with many impressive highlights. Total: 7,200 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,440
