Robinson (Ex-Mt+). Dating from when sets could not be purchased all at once, and had to be assembled by series as they were released throughout the season, this 1970 Topps set is starting to have some real age to it (49 years and counting!) and includes a countless array of stars and Hall of Famers. This is a very attractive high-grade complete set of this classic 1970's Topps series. The SMR value for 120 of the graded cards (excluding the PSA-qualified card and factoring in the six half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,572. Total: 720 cards. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be an additional shipping charge for this lot. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+.
