Presented here is a high-grade accumulation of cards from the difficult 1971 Topps Baseball issue, the company’s largest offering to that time and easily the most condition-sensitive issue the venerable Brooklyn-based behemoth has ever produced. The full-bleed black borders have long made the issue a challenge for collectors, making this nice, collectible Excellent to Nr-Mt offering (with some falling below the range) all the more attractive. This array constitutes more than 80 percent of a complete set and is a solid Excellent to Nr-Mt, with some below and the emphasis to Ex-Mt. More than a dozen Hall of Famers are included in this group, along with many All-Stars, stars and Specials. About 1/3 of the group have the kind of centering that might typically prompt an upgrade, though not all of those would be severe enough to dictate a formal off-center designation. Breakdown of keys: No. 1 Orioles Team – Good, 26 Blyleven – Ex, 50 McCovey – Ex-Mt, 10 League Leader cards, 110 Mazeroski – Ex, 140 Perry – Ex-Mt o/c, 180 Kaline – Ex-Mt 183 Hodges – Ex, seven Playoff subset cards, 239 Schoendienst – Ex-Mt, 280 Jenkins – Nr-Mt o/c, 289 White Sox Team – Nr-Mt, 308 Cardinals Team – Nr-Mt, 325 Marichal – Ex, six World Series subset cards, 357 Reds Team – Ex, 386 Red Sox Team – Ex, 442 Angels Team – Vg-Ex, 462 Senators Team – Ex-Mt, 477 Weaver – Ex-Mt, 482 Padres Team – Ex, 449 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 502 Cubs Team – Good, 522 Twins Team – Ex-Mt o/c, 530 Yastrzemski – Ex-Mt-Plus, 543 Yankees Team – Ex-Mt, 563 Giants Team – Nr-Mt, 574 Bunning – Ex-Mt-Plus, 584 Indians – Ex, 609 Durocher – Ex-Mt-Plus o/c, 624 Athletics Team – Ex-Mt, 625 Brock – Ex, 641 Mets Team – Ex-Mt o/c, 652 Braves Team –Ex-Mt-Plus o/c, 674 Expos Team – Ex and 742 Royals Team –Ex-Mt-Plus.
