Five 1974 Topps Factory Vending Complete Sets (3,520 cards)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,643.75
Collection of five complete factory-vending sets comprised of 1974 Topps baseball (660 cards per set). Each set includes the traded set (44 cards per set) for a total of 704 cards per set. All 3,520 Topps cards comprising these sets were assembled and packaged directly by the factory. Our consignor purchased these cards in their year of issue as an investment and safely stored them away for over twenty-five years. The boxes the sets come in are taped shut and have never been opened. The 1974 Topps set includes cards of Nolan Ryan, Mike Schmidt, Tom Seaver, Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield (RC), and Pete Rose. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, there is, of course, the very real possibility that within this box are Gem Mint cards of these stars. All the other stars of the day are also included. Five extraordinarily high-grade unopened vending sets looking exactly as they did when they left the Topps factory in 1974. Total 3,520 cards (five complete sets of 704). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
