1971 Topps Collection (998 cards, 269 different) Including 80 HOFers
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,540.50
Tremendous hoard of 998 assorted cards (including 269 different) from the 1971 Topps set. The collection is highlighted by eighty cards featuring Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Willie Mays, and the rookie card of Bert Blyleven. Many of these Hall of Famers (as well as other cards) are represented in quantity due to the heavy duplication. These cards have been saved for decades (probably since 1971) by our consignor's family and were obviously carefully stored as the extremely condition-sensitive black borders display only minor wear. It is possible that these cards originated from vending in the year of issue as a very slight curl is present in many of the cards. Condition of this collection: 67% Ex-Mt or better and 33% Ex (mostly due to centering or visible wear to the fragile edges or corners) including a few lesser. This is a particularly attractive, and for this issue, relatively high-grade group. Keys: #20 Jackson (Ex), 26 Blyleven RC (Ex-Mt), 50 McCovey (Ex-Mt), three 140 Perry (Nr/Mt and two Ex-Mt), seven 160 Seaver (two Nr/Mt, two Ex-Mt, Ex+, and two Ex), 180 Kaline (Ex-Mt), four 210 Carew (Nr/Mt, two Ex-Mt, and Ex), four 220 Santo (two Ex-Mt and two Ex), three 230 Stargell (two Ex-Mt and Ex), five 239 Schoendienst (four Ex-Mt and Ex), two 248 Wilhelm (both Ex), six 250 Bench (two Ex-Mt and four Ex+), 264 Morgan (Ex-Mt), 280 Jenkins (Ex-Mt), five 300 B. Robinson (three Ex-Mt and two Ex), two 325 Marichal (both Ex-Mt), eight 341 Garvey RC (four Nr/Mt, two Ex-Mt, and two Ex), seven 350 B. Williams (two Ex-Mt and five Ex), six 361 Sutton (four Ex-Mt, Ex+, and Ex), three 380 Williams (two Ex-Mt and Ex+), three 384 Fingers (Ex+ and two Ex), 400 Aaron (Ex-Mt), 450 Gibson (Vg-Ex), 525 Banks (Ex+), 600 Mays (Ex+), 625 Brock (Ex), and 630 Clemente (Ex-Mt). This is a very substantial group of cards with numerous highlights (including eighty Hall of Famers) from the very popular 1971 Topps set. Total: 998 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $1,540.50
