This collection consists of nine complete sets as well as more than 1,800 duplicates, among them countless Hall of Famers, rookies, and stars. One of the complete sets is a factory set, still wrapped in the bricks as issued by Donruss. Eight of the complete sets are hand collated and grade 85% Nr/Mt to Mint (averaging Nr/Mt-Mt) and 15% slightly lesser (almost entirely due to centering).

Three of the sets include the scarcer corrected versions of #29 Stenhouse and 30 Darling. Condition of the duplicates is 70% Nr/Mt to Mint (averaging Nr/Mt-Mt) and 30% lesser.
