Presented here is a really nice example of the 1970 Topps Baseball set in nine-pocket sheets in a binder, the first Topps issue launching the decade of the 1970’s and one of the last couple of sets the company produced in individual series, yielding an expensive group of high numbers in the final run. Also included with the set are samples from a couple of peripheral Topps issues that year, with nine of the Booklet inserts and four of the Scratch-offs. The offered set is broadly Excellent to Near-Mint with the emphasis to Ex-Mt and perhaps 100 or so cards about Excellent and another three dozen or so VG-Ex or below. Approximately ¼ of the set (180 cards) 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. A total of five cards have been third-party slabbed and graded: No. 140 Jackson – PSA 6, 449 Palmer – SGC 82, 530 Gibson – SGC 84, 600 Mays – SGC 60 and 712 Ryan – SGC 40. The breakdown: No. 1 Mets Team – Ex-Mt, 10 Yastrzemski – Ex-Mt, 17 Wilhelm – Near-Mint, 61 League Leader – Excellent, 62 League Leader – VG-Ex, 63 League Leader – Very Good, 65 League Leader – VG, 66 League Leader – VG-Ex, 67 League Leader – Ex, 60 League Leader – VG-Ex, 70 League Leader – VG-Ex, 71 League Leader – VG-Ex, 75 Kaat – Nr-Mt, 128 Checklist – VG-Ex, 140 Jackson – PSA 6, 148 Weaver – Ex, 150 Killebrew – Ex, 160 Niekro – Nr-Mt, 170 Billy Williams – Ex-Mt, 181 Anderson – Ex, 189 Munson – VG-Ex, 201 World Series – VG (crease), 210 Marichal – Ex-Mt, 211 Ted Williams – Ex-Mt, 220 Carlton – Ex, 230 Brooks Robinson – Ex, 240 Jenkins – Ex-Mt, 242 Alston – Ex o/c, 244 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 250 McCovey – Ex-Mt, 290 Carew – VG-Ex, 300 Seaver – Ex-Mt, 315 Aparicio – Nr-Mt o/c, 330 Brock – Ex-Mt, 343 Checklist – Nr-Mt o/c, 346 Schoendienst – Ex, 350 Clemente – Ex, 380 Perez – VG-Ex, 387 Orioles Team – Ex-Mt o/c, 394 Hodges – VG-Ex, 399 Yankees Team – Ex-Mt, 403 Bunning – Nr-Mt o/c, 432 Checklist – Nr-Mt o/c, 440 Mazeroski – Ex, 449 Palmer – SGC 82, 458 Rose All-Star – Nr-Mt o/c, 459 Jackson All-Star Nr-Mt o/c, 461 Yastrzemski All-Star – Nr-Mt o/c, 462 Aaron All-Star – Ex-Mt o/c, 463 Frank Robinson All-Star – Ex-Mt o/c, 464 Bench All-Star – Nr-Mt o/c, 470 Stargell – Ex, 500 Aaron – VG-Ex (presents Ex-Mt, but small, light crease), 502 Fingers – Nr-Mt, 530 Gibson – SGC 84, 537 Morgan – Nr-Mt, 542 – Checklist – Ex, 555 Cepeda – Ex o/c, 560 Perry – Ex-Mt o/c, 565 Hunter – Ex, 580 Rose – VG (presents Ex-Mt but crease), 588 Checklist – VG-Ex, 600 Mays – SGC 60, 630 Banks – Ex o/c, 640 Kaline – Ex, 660 Bench – Ex-Mt o/c, 670 Santo – Nr-Mt o/c, 700 Frank Robinson – Nr-Mt o/c and 712 Ryan – SGC 40.
