Lot 1092: 1970/71 Topps Basketball Complete PSA Graded Set - 3rd Best in the Hobby!
The 3rd Finest set currently in the hobby of this magnificent issue is something that usually can only be dreamed of. To think of the time and effort put forth by the diligent collector who assembled this amazing accumulation! Well, that effort can now be the intangible reward for one lucky interested party. Available here, and in full frontal assault, is an awe-inspiring aggregation of the delicious basketball set issued by Topps during the 1970/71 basketball season. These are smoking, pack fresh cards with a total of 172 of the set's 175 cards graded either PSA 9 or PSA 8! Specifically, there are 95 PSA 9's, with these numbers: 5, 9, 12, 16-25, 27, 28, 30, 38-40, 42, 44, 46-47, 50-51, 53-54, 56-57, 60-61, 63-64, 68, 70-73, 75-77, 79, 83-84, 88-89, 92-94, 98, 100-103, 105-107, 109, 113-114, 116, 118-120, 124-133, 138, 141-147, 149-152, 154, 157-159, 161-162, 165 and 169. Key 9's in the group include Monroe, CL1, Walker, Lucas, Chamberlain, Hayes, Unseld, Alcindor, Roberton, CL2, numerous All-Star cards, Frazier, Hawkins, White, Reed and Haskins. The rest of the set, with the exception of card #'s 4, 31 and 95, are all high quality PSA 8's. This group includes a very strong rookie card of the great Pistol Pete Maravich. With a set rating of 8.540, this set would be tough to top and almost certainly couldn't be easily assembled card by card. For a complete listing of the cards in the set, please refer to the PSA Registry and reference "Orangemenfan's 1970 Tall Boys." Good luck!
