Collection of three complete sets of 1975 Topps Mini baseball (660 cards per set). All three sets are blazers! This is not surprising, as a large percentage of the cards comprising these sets were assembled directly from an unopened case. Our consignor, a 1975 Topps Mini aficionado, purchased three unopened cases from the legendary Conlon Collection (which was sold by REA in 2009) and opened all the packs from one of the cases. These are virtually untouched sets. The sets grade 98% Nr/Mt or better (including many MINT cards), 2% Ex-Mt ( with a few slightly lesser), with the normal number of off-center cards that are to be expected. The rookie cards of Hall of Famers George Brett, Robin Yount, Jim Rice, and Gary Carter highlight the 1975 Topps Mini issue, one of the most popular and unusual sets of the 1970s. All the other stars of the day are also included. The 1975 Mini cards are 20% smaller than the standard Topps cards and were test marketed only in Michigan and on the West Coast. Aside from their smaller size, they are otherwise identical to the standard 1975 Topps cards. The colored flush-to-the-border design of the 1975 Topps Mini set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. These are literally "pack-fresh" sets in extraordinary high-grade. Three cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (#223 Yount RC PSA NM 7 and two #228 Brett RC PSA NM-MT 8 and PSA NM 7). Total: 1,980 cards (three complete sets of 660). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
