1970 Topps PSA-Graded Near-Complete Set (652/720)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $6,518

Offered is an extraordinary high-grade near-complete set of 652 different (out of 720) 1970 Topps baseball cards. The gray flush-to-the-border design of the 1970 Topps set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. This is one of the finest near-sets of this popular 1970s issue we have ever seen or offered. All 652 cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The near-set is comprised of one GEM MINT 10, ninety-eight MINT 9s, and 553 NM-MT 8s. The PSA grades are as follows: GEM MINT 10: #597. MINT 9: #33, 35, 36, 54, 74, 76, 81, 83, 94, 108, 110, 120, 124, 134, 139, 153, 154, 159, 160 Niekro (OC), 169, 170 B. Williams, 172, 192, 206, 215, 228, 254, 268, 271, 279, 285, 305, 309, 311, 316, 327, 332, 336, 347, 351, 363, 390, 393, 402, 404, 411 Dodgers team, 446, 456, 475, 476, 481, 484, 488, 514, 524, 527, 537 Morgan (OC), 542, 552, 554, 556, 558, 560 Perry, 562, 565 Hunter, 567, 570, 573, 575, 584, 593, 598, 599, 606, 607, 614, 616, 617, 618, 622 Sutton, 625, 626, 627, 632, 649, 661, 674, 679, 680, 684, 686, 687, 691, 701, 706, 709, 713 Pilots team (OC), and 719. NM-MT 8: including #10 Yastrzemski (OF), 140 Jackson, 148 Weaver, 150 Killebrew, 189 Munson RC, 210 Marichal, 211 T. Williams, 220 Carlton, 230 B. Robinson, 240 Jenkins, 242 Alston, 250 McCovey (OC), 290 Carew, 291 Durocher, 300 Seaver, 315 Aparicio, 330 Brock, 350 Clemente, 380 Perez, 394 Hodges, 403 Bunning, 440 Mazeroski, 449 Palmer, 458 Rose AS, 459 Jackson AS, 470 Stargell, 502 Fingers, 530 Gibson, 555 Cepeda, 580 Rose, 600 Mays, 630 Banks, 640 Kaline, 660 Bench, 700 F. Robinson, and 712 Ryan. This is an extraordinary high-grade near-set of one of the most condition-sensitive of all card sets from any era. This near-set looks like it was assembled from cards pulled right out of packs or vending cases in the year of issue. The grading fees alone to encapsulate 652 cards would literally be thousands of dollars! The total SMR value for the individual cards (not including the one GEM MINT 10 and the six qualified cards) is $10,942. Total: 652 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $6,518
