57% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (including some Mint) and 43% Ex to Ex-Mt (mostly due to centering). Exceptional high-grade complete set of 1980-1981 Topps basketball, highlighted by the three-player rookie card of Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Magic Johnson alongside Julius Erving. This card is one of the most important of all basketball cards ever produced as it features three players named to the "50 Greatest Players in NBA History" list, two of whom appear for the first time ever on a Topps card. The 1980-1981 Topps Basketball set is designed in trifold style so that each card features three individual player sections. Keys: #6 Bird/Johnson RC (SGC NM 84, submitted by REA), 48 Bird Scoring Ldr (Nr/Mt), 49 Bird Rebounding Ldr (Nr/Mt-Mt), 66 Johnson AS (Nr/Mt+), 94 Bird RC (Nr/Mt), 98 Bird Scoring Ldr (Nr/Mt-Mt), 111 Johnson AS (Nr/Mt+), 146 Johnson RC (Ex-Mt), and 165 Bird Rebounding Ldr (Nr/Mt-Mt). This is a superb and extremely attractive high-grade complete set of this popular basketball-card issue. Total: 176 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
