1971 Topps Complete Set (752)

  • Sold For: $2,350
  • Year: 1971
  • Auction: 2010 spring
  • Lot #: 773
  • Auction Category: Postwar Baseball Cards (1948-present)

85% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt overall), 15% Ex. The black flush-to-the-border design of the 1971 Topps set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. This is an extremely attractive and overall very high grade set, yet is far more affordable than the $29,375 that the #3 PSA Registry set (with an average grade of 8.10) realized as Lot #755 in REA's 2008 auction! We have selected six key cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC (two graded NM+ 86 and four NM 84). Keys: #5 Munson (no right border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 20 Jackson (SGC NM 84), 100 Rose (SGC NM 84), 160 Seaver (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 250 Bench (75/25 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 341 Garvey RC (SGC NM+ 86), 400 Aaron (SGC NM 84), 513 Ryan (SGC NM+ 86), 525 Banks (Ex), 600 Mays (Ex), 630 Clemente (SGC NM 84), 640 F. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 709 Baylor/Baker RC (Nr/Mt). Total 752 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,350
