This is a really nice example of a complete set of perhaps Topps’ most difficult issue ever produced in terms of condition-sensitive borders, the jet black background that brutally reveals even the slightest dings and nicks. This example is a strong Excellent to Ex-Mt with some below, with the emphasis probably Excellent and perhaps a couple dozen cards challenging Near-Mint status, and a handsome overall, consistent presentation that marks this as a particularly intriguing lot. There may be perhaps four dozen cards that are VG-Ex and about half that number Very Good, relatively small numbers for such a condition-sensitive issue. The overall condition actually improves a bit from the Fourth Series on, with many of the Near-Mint examples turning up at that point and the emphasis probably closer to Ex-Mt. The breakdown: No. 1 Orioles Team – Ex-Mt, 5 Munson – Nr-Mt o/c, 20 Jackson - Ex o/c, 25 Blyleven – Very Good, 30 Niekro – Ex-Mt o/c, 45 Hunter – VG-Ex, 50 McCovey – Ex-Mt, 54 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 55 Carlton – Ex-Mt, 100 Rose – Ex, 110 Mazeroski – Ex-Mt o/c, 123 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 140 Perry Nr-Mt o/c, 160 Seaver – Ex-Mt, 161 Coin Checklist – Ex, 180 Kaline – Ex, 206 Checklist – Ex, Carew – Ex-Mt o/c, 220 Santo – Ex, 230 Stargell – VG-Ex, 239 Schoendienst – Nr-Mt o/c, 250 Bench – VG-Ex, 264 Morgan – Ex-Mt, 268 Phillies Team – VG, 280 Jenkins – Ex-Mt, 289 White Sox Team – VG-Ex, 300 Brooks Robinson – Ex-Mt, 308 Cardinals Team – Ex-Mt o/c, 325 Marichal – Ex-Mt, 336 Tigers Team – Ex-Mt, 350 Williams – Good, 357 Reds Team – VG, 361 Sutton – Ex, 369 Checklist – Fair, 370 Torre – Ex, 380 Williams - Ex o/c, 384 Fingers – Ex-Mt o/c, 386 Red Sox Team – VG-Ex, 400 Aaron – Nr-Mt o/c, 402 Dodgers Team – VG-Ex, 442 Angels Team – Ex-Mt, 450 Gibson – Ex, 462 Senators Team – Ex-Mt, 477 Weaver – Ex, 482 Padres Team – Nr-Mt, 499 Checklist – Nr-Mt to Mt, 502 Cubs Team – Nr-Mt to Mt, 513 Ryan – Ex-Mt, 522 Twins Team – VG-Ex, 529 Banks – Vg-Ex, 530 Yastrzemski – VG-Ex, 530 Yankees Team - Ex o/c, 550 Killebrew – Ex-Mt o/c, 563 Giants Team – Nr-Mt o/c, 567 Alston – VG-Ex, 570 Palmer – Nr-Mt o/c, 580 Perez – VG, 584 Indians Team – Nr-Mt, 600 Mays – Ex-Mt o/c, 603 Pirates Team – Ex-Mt, 605 Cepeda – VG-Ex, 609 Durocher – Vg-Ex, 619 Checklist – VG, 624 Athletics Team – Ex-Mt, 630 Clemente – VG-Ex, 640 Frank Robinson – Ex-Mt, 641 Mets Team – Ex-Mt o/c, 652 Braves team – VG, 674 Expos Team – VG, 688 Anderson – VG-Ex, 698 Brewers Team – Ex, 714 Williams - Ex o/c, 722 Astros Team – Ex and 742 Royals Team – VG.
