Description

There simply is not a better way to round out a collection than to purchase the complete set, gathering in every card produced by Topps that year. Presented is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a full set run from an entire decade, 1970 through 1980 Topps Baseball including the 1974 and 1976 Topps Traded issues. This collection includes three tough sets, the 1970-1972 sets, complete with all the difficult high series cards but there is a caveat. Inexplicably, each set has a small red or blue mark in the lower left corner on about 50% of the card’s reverses. Each key in these three sets will be notated in the description as marked with the corresponding condition. The sets include 1970 Topps: (720) cards in VG condition with #140 Jackson (VG), #189 Munson (VG), #350 Clemente (VG mk), #500 Aaron (GD), #580 Rose (VG-EX), #600 Mays (GD), #712 Ryan (GD-VG); 1971 Topps: (752) cards in VG condition with #100 Rose (VG mk), #341 Garvey (VG-EX), #400 Aaron (GD mk), #513 Ryan (VG-EX), #525 Banks (VG-EX), #600 Mays (VG-EX mk), #630 Clemente (VG), #709 Baylor/Baker (VG-EX); 1972 Topps: (787) cards in VG/VG-EX condition with #49 Mays (EX), #79 Fisk/Cooper (VG-EX), #299 Aaron (VG mk), #309 Clemente (VG-EX mk), #559 Rose (VG-EX mk), #595 Ryan (GD-VG), #695 Carew (VG-EX); 1973 Topps: (660) cards in EX-MT condition with #50 Clemente (EX-MT), #100 Aaron (EX-MT o/c), #130 Rose (EX-MT), #220 Ryan (EX-MT o/c), #305 Mays (EX-MT), #615 Schmidt (EX/EX-MT); 1974 Topps: (704) cards with Traded in NM/NM-MT condition including ##1 Aaron (EX), #20 Ryan (NM-MT), #283 Schmidt (NM), #300 Rose (NM-MT), #456 Winfield (NM-MT); 1975 Topps: (660) cards in EX-MT condition with #223 Yount (NM o/c), #228 Brett (EX-MT), #320 Rose (NM-MT), #500 Ryan (EX), #660 Aaron (VG); 1976 Topps: (704) cards with Traded in NM/NM-MT condition including #98 Eckersley (NM), #240 Rose (NM-MT), #330 Ryan (NM-MT o/c) #550 Aaron (NM); 1977 Topps: (660) cards in NM condition with #450 Rose (NM-MT), #473 Dawson (NM), #650 Ryan (NM); 1978 Topps: (726) cards in NM-MT condition with #36 Murray (NM-MT), #400 Ryan (NM), #707 Molitor/Trammell (NM); 1979 Topps: (726) cards in NM/NM-MT condition with the usual centering issues including #115 Ryan (NM-MT o/c), #116 O.
