1981-1982 Topps Basketball Near-Complete PSA-Graded Set (187/198)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $593

Near-complete set of 1981-1982 Topps Basketball entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. This near-set is missing only eleven cards for completion and the collection has an extraordinary GPA of 8.56. The missing cards are #13, 19, E69, E93, W78, W79, W96, MW85, MW91, MW94, and MW101. The set currently ranks as #12 on the PSA Set Registry, but with a little investment in obtaining the missing cards, it would become the fifth complete set currently registered (and only the sixth ever registered as complete). The key card to the set is the rookie card of Hall of Famer Kevin McHale, but dozens of Hall of Famers and stars are also featured throughout the set, including Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. A complete grading composite is available on the PSA Set Registry by visiting the following link: http://tinyurl.com/l5mawvv. The set contains 17 GEM MINT 10s, 87 MINT 9s, 3 NM-MT+ 8.5s, 75 NM-MT 8s, and 5 NM 7s. Keys: #4 Bird (NM-MT 8), 20 Abdul-Jabbar (GEM MINT 10), 21 Johnson (NM-MT 8), 30 Erving (MINT 9), 75 McHale RC (NM-MT 8), E101 Bird SA (NM-MT 8), and W109 Johnson SA (NM-MT 8). This is a very attractive, ultra high-grade near-complete set of this popular Topps basketball issue containing numerous stars and Hall of Famers. Total: 187 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $593
