9% Nr/Mt-Mt, 40% Nr/Mt, and 51% Ex to Ex-Mt (including some lower). Extremely attractive, crisp, and clean near-complete set consisting of 725 different cards (out of 787) from the 1972 Topps series, one of the most popular Topps sets of the decade. This is a beautiful set with many extremely high-grade cards. Keys: #49 Mays (Ex-Mt), 50 Mays IA (Nr/Mt), 51 Killebrew (MINT 9), 79 Fisk RC (Ex-Mt), 299 Aaron (Ex-Mt+), 300 Aaron IA (Ex), 309 Clemente (NM 7), 310 Clemente IA (NM-MT 8), 433 Bench (Nr/Mt), 550 B. Robinson (85/15 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 559 Rose (Vg-Ex+), 595 Ryan (Ex-Mt), 695 Carew (Nr/Mt), 751 Carlton (Ex-Mt+), and 754 Robinson (Ex+). Also included are three green-letter Cubs variations for cards #18, 29, and 117. Spectacularly clean and crisp high-grade near-complete set with the usual number of mostly minor centering problems, which account for the downgrades on almost all the cards graded Ex or Ex-Mt. This is a beautifully preserved and simply outstanding high-grade near-complete set of one of the great classic Topps sets of the era! Total: 728 cards (725 different plus three variations). Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+.
