1970 to 1984 Topps Hockey Complete Sets (15 sets, 3,088 cards)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,525

Outstanding 1970 through 1984 Topps Hockey complete set run (Topps did not issue regular cards for the 1982-1983 and 1983-1984 seasons). Beautiful, mostly very high-grade complete sets of these Topps hockey classics. From a very old-time collection, these sets have been stored away in a closet for decades, possibly since their years of issue. Though they do not have as many cards as the Topps baseball sets of the era, and are not as valuable, these hockey sets are actually rarer than their baseball counterparts. Each set is loaded with all the great stars and Hall of Famers from two different decades. 1) 1970-1971 complete set (132): 90% range from Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 10% lesser grades.
