Missing four cards for completion (#50 Mays, 163 Koufax, 380 Aaron, and 561 Aaron AS).

This set features many key stars more than once, as so many stars appear again in special multiplayer cards or in the All-Star series in the scarce high-number series (#507-572). Very attractive mid-grade complete set (minus 4). Total: 568 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
