1970 Topps Vending Hoard (1,375 cards)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,350.00

Crisp, fresh vending hoard of 1,375 1970 Topps baseball cards. The gray flush-to-the-border design of the 1970 Topps set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high-grade. This hoard of vending-fresh high-grade examples could provide the foundation for a high-grade set and at the same time provide quality inventory to fill want lists. A high percentage of these cards are well-centered, with the fresh look which vending quality cards from this era display. Although the numbers range exclusively from 119 through 620, large selections of players and teams are featured, with duplication restricted mostly to single-digit quantities of any one card. Hall of Famers, stars and popular numbers are also present in the assortment, with such highlights as #148 Weaver (2), 150 Killebrew (3), 160 Niekro (3), 170 B. Williams (3), 181 Anderson (3), 210 Marichal (3), 211 T. Williams (3), 230 B. Robinson (3), 240 Jenkins (3), 250 McCovey (3), 286 Buckner (3), 290 Carew (3), 300 Seaver (3), 315 Aparicio (3), 330 Brock (3), 350 Clemente (3), 450 McCovey AS (3), 453 Carew AS (3), 455 B. Robinson AS (3), 458 Rose AS (3), 459 Jackson AS (3), 461 Yaz AS (3), 463 F. Robinson AS (3), 502 Fingers (2), 530 Gibson (3), 560 Perry (3), and 600 Mays (2). The condition is uniformly high-grade throughout, with a full 80% grading Nr/Mt or better and 20% grading Ex-Mt due to centering issues. Most of these cards are well-suited as candidates for professional grading or ideal for upgrading a high-grade set. Total 1,375 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
