Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,350.00
Grades 55% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 35% Ex-Mt, 10% Ex. Highlighted by the rookie cards of HOFers Nolan Ryan and Johnny Bench, this set also includes the extremely popular “combo” cards featuring more than one player, with #480 Superstars (with Roberto Clemente), #490 Superstars (Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle, and Willie Mays), and #530 Bird Belters (Frank and Brooks Robinson). Keys: 45 Seaver (75/25 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 50 Mays (30/70 L/R and T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 80 Carew (Ex-Mt), 100 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 110 Aaron (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 150 Clemente (20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 177 Ryan RC (80/20 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 230 Rose (Ex), 240 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 247 Bench RC (10/90 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 250 Yastrzemski (20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 280 Mantle (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 330 Maris (70/30 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 355 Banks (Nr/Mt), 408 Carlton (Ex), 480 Manager's Dream (Ex-Mt), 490 Superstars (Nr/Mt-Mt), 500 Robinson (Ex-Mt), 520 Brock (Nr/Mt-Mt), 528 Tigers (Ex-Mt), 530 Bird Belters (Nr/Mt), and 575 Palmer (10/90 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt). Very sharp, clean, crisp overall Nr/Mt set with the usual number of mostly minor centering problems. This is a sharp-looking set. It is not surprising to learn that this set has remained literally untouched in a closet for the past twenty-five years. Total 598 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
