Exceptional complete set of 1971 Milk Duds offered in ideal complete-box form and consisting of all seventy-two players, including numerous Hall of Famers and stars, three of which were double-printed (Killebrew, B. Robinson, and Rose). Milk Duds, the popular chocolate candy, featured cards on the back panel of the boxes in 1971 that were designed to be hand-cut by youngsters. It is the method of issue along with the hand-cut nature that often makes cards from this series appear in lesser condition than found here. There is, as is to be expected, light toning and/or minor wrinkling on the non-card areas of most boxes. The cards are all Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt with the exception of five (Aaron, Aparicio, Howard, Melton, and B. Robinson), which have a tiny wrinkle visible in the card area. The location of the box folds varies, including some very close to the card border lines. All boxes and cards present in outstanding high grade despite the few very minor condition flaws. This is a superbly attractive and overall high-grade complete set of uncut boxes from this popular 1970s food issue. Total: 72 boxes. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
