The 1971 Topps Brady Bunch set, based on the popular TV show, and is one of nonsport-card collecting's great classics. Presented is one of the finest complete sets of 1971 Topps Brady Bunch trading cards to ever be assembled in the history of collecting. It is by far the finest we have ever seen or offered. Every card in the set has been graded by PSA: 16 of the 88 cards in this complete set have been graded NM-MT 8 and 72 cards are graded NM 7. This is an extraordinary set, ultra high quality throughout, and with a simply amazing degree of consistency. The flush-to-the-border wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear, and very difficult to assemble as a complete set in such high grade. A tremendous amount of time and energy has been invested in the assembly of this high-grade set, with a concern for all condition factors including centering, and also overall eye-appeal. This is currently the third-finest set on the PSA registry. The PSA set registry GPA of 7.16 is especially extraordinary for this extremely condition-sensitive set. The Brady Bunch was a sensation in the 1970s, and one of the few television shows of the early 1970s to survive with its popularity intact to this day. Brady Bunch fanatics will remember that Don Drysdale once visited the Bradys to offer some pitching tips. As we know, none of the Brady boys ever made it to the Majors, but they did get their own bubble-gum card set! When The Brady Bunch first hit the airwaves in 1969, Greg couldn't even shave. By the time the series was retired in 1974, Greg was practically a gorilla. One of the defining TV families of the American cultural landscape, the Bradys live on, suspended in time, both on "Nick at Nite" and in this classic nonsport set. The PSA grades are as follows: Sixteen NM-MT 8: #14 (only one graded higher), 27, 28 (none graded higher), 30 (only one graded higher), 34 (only one graded higher), 37 (none graded higher), 40 (only one graded higher), 44 (none graded higher), 54 (none graded higher), 56 (one graded higher), 59 (none graded higher), 71 (none graded higher), 74 (none graded higher), 84 (only two graded at this level, none graded higher), 87 (none graded higher), and 88 (qualified OC). Seventy-two NM 7: #1 (only two graded higher), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 31, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38, 39, 41, 42 (only one graded higher), 43, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 57 (only one graded higher), 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 85, and 86. Many of these cards are the highest (9 cards) or second-highest (7 cards) graded examples in the PSA Population Report. This is an extraordinary entirely graded high-grade complete set of this popular nonsport issue, and without question one of the finest 1971 Topps Brady Bunch sets ever assembled in the history of collecting. The total SMR value for the individual cards is $4,135 (not including the one qualified card). Total: 88 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+. SOLD FOR $3,851
