1971 Topps "Brady Bunch" Complete Set (88) Plus Unopened Wax Pack and Wrapper

Presented is an outstanding 88-card complete set of 1971 Topps "Brady Bunch" trading cards accompanied by an unopened wax pack and original wax wrapper. These full-color cards feature scenes from various episodes of the popular television series on the front, while the reverse features part of an image intended to be pieced together with other cards from the set to produce a large, color display. 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 cards very susceptible to corner and edge wear, and very difficult to assemble as a complete set in such high grade. The condition of the set is 49% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 30% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 21% Vg to Vg-Ex. Also included are six duplicates (three Nr/Mt and three Vg to Ex). The unopened pack is graded NM 7 by GAI and the wrapper is in Excellent condition with normal packaging wrinkles and folds. 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. This is a very crisp, clean, and overall high-grade set that presents beautifully and would be at home in any collection of 1970s nonsports cards or television-related collectibles. Total: 96 items (88-card set plus unopened pack, wrapper, and 6 duplicates). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
