1971 Topps Complete Set Including Topps Coins and Supers (3 sets, 969 cards)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,303.50
Presented are three complete sets issued by Topps in 1971: the 1971 Topps gum-card set, the 1971 Topps Coins set (which were inserts), and the 1971 Topps "Super" set (large, thick cards that were packaged and sold separately from the regular 1971 Topps cards). Each set is loaded with stars and Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, and many more. These are very attractive mid- to high-grade sets assembled by a dedicated collector over a period of several years. A total of eighty-three items have been professionally graded, at great expense, eighty of which are coins (and which represent more than half of the complete set). 1) 1971 Topps Complete Set (752 cards): 37% Ex-Mt, 41% Ex, and 22% Vg-Ex. Sharp-looking set downgraded due to wear against the delicate black borders and the typical centering issues common to this set. Keys: #5 Munson (Vg-Ex), 20 Jackson (PSA EX 5), 26 Blyleven RC (miscut back, otherwise Ex), 100 Rose (Ex), 160 Seaver (Ex), 250 Bench (Ex), 341 Garvey RC (Ex), 400 Aaron (Ex), 513 Ryan (Vg-Ex+), 525 Banks (Ex+), 600 Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 630 Clemente (Ex), and 709 Baker RC (PSA 7 [OC]). 2) 1971 Topps Super Complete Set (63 cards): Attractive complete set in overall Ex to Ex-Mt condition with a few lesser. Presents very well but technically mid-grade due to slight miscuts or wrinkles on reverse, both production-related flaws common to this issue. Keys: #20 Rose (slight tear on back, otherwise Ex-Mt), 37 Clemente (Ex), 38 Jackson (Ex), 44 Aaron (Vg-Ex+), and 56 Mays (Ex-Mt). 3) 1971 Topps Coins Complete Set (153 coins plus one checklist): Mid- to high-grade complete set highlighted by 80 PSA-graded coins (all PSA NM 7 except for three EX-MT 6), including #3 Bunning, 7 Jenkins, 16 Aparicio, 24 Carew, 37 Niekro, 50 F. Robinson, 57 McCovey, 62 Kaline, 63 Gibson, 73 Perry, 75 Williams, 87 Brock, 108 Jackson (EX-MT 6), 123 Stargell, 125 Marichal, 145 Sutton, and 153 Mays. The balance of the coins range in grade from Vg-Ex to Nr/Mt with the lesser-condition coins downgraded due to the presence of light rusting. Checklist is Ex, unmarked. This is a very attractive collection of sets issued by Topps in 1971, loaded with stars and Hall of Famers. Total: 969 items (816 cards and 153 coins). Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,303.50
