At 720 cards, the 1970 Topps set was the largest set of Topps cards issued to date. This is a beautiful set with many extremely high-grade cards. Twenty-seven cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Mets Team (NM 7), 10 Yaz (Ex-Mt+), 140 Jackson (Ex-Mt+), 189 Munson RC (Vg-Ex), 211 T. Williams (NM-MT-8), 220 Carlton (Vg+), 230 B. Robinson (NM-MT 8), 290 Carew (Nr/Mt), 300 Seaver (Nr/Mt+), 330 Brock (Nr/Mt-Mt), 350 Clemente (NM-MT 8), 449 Palmer (Ex-Mt+), 458 Rose AS (Ex-Mt+), 462 Aaron AS (Ex), 500 Aaron (NM-MT 8), 530 Gibson (NM-MT 8), 537 Morgan (NM-MT 8), 565 Hunter (NM-MT 8), 580 Rose (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt+), 600 Mays (NM-MT 8), 630 Banks (EX-MT 6), 640 Kaline (Ex), 660 Bench (NM 7), 700 F.

Niekro, 218 (NM+ 7.5), and 473. EX-MT 6 (4 cards): #286 Buckner RC, 501 (EX-MT+ 6.5), 523, and 560 Perry. This is a very attractive complete set in exceptionally high grade. Almost all of the cards graded Ex and Ex-Mt are downgraded entirely due to centering. The SMR value for just twenty-six of the graded cards is $1,175 (not including the one qualified card and factoring in the two half-grades at the lower whole-grade level). Total: 720 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
