This is a marvelous example of the most difficult, condition-sensitive baseball card issue that Topps ever produced, the black-bordered 1971 Topps set that remains one of the true classics for serious collectors. This example is outstanding, essentially Excellent to Near-Mint, with some above and below and the emphasis probably to Ex-Mt. There are about four dozen cards that approach Near-Mint to Mint status, and perhaps twice that number that fall below to Very Good or below. The centering is fairly typical for the era and there are 11 variations included in the mix, along with three cards that have autographs: an extra No. 115 Clendenon, No. 441 Pappas (COA from Kevin Savage Cards) and No. 741 Guinn. The variations roster includes Day, Grabarkewitz, Northrup and Nash, plus Series Two Checklist (all 3), Series Three (2), Series Four (3) and Series Six (3). The breakdown: No. 1 Mets Team – Very Good, 5 Munson – VG m/c, 20 Jackson – VG, 26 Blyleven – Ex, 30 Niekro – Nr-Mt, 45 Hunter – Nr-Mt, 50 McCovey – VG, 54 Checklist – Fair (mk), 55 Carlton – Ex-Mt, 100 Rose – Nr-Mt, 110 Mazeroski – Ex, 140 Perry – Ex, 160 Seaver – Nr-Mt to Mt, 180 Kaline – Ex-Mt, 183 Hodges – VG-Ex, 210 Carew – Nr-Mt, 220 Santo – VG-Ex, 230 Stargell – Nr-Mt to Mt, 239 Schoendienst – Nr-Mt to Mt, 248 Wilhelm – Nr-Mt, 250 Bench – Ex-Mt, 280 Jenkins – Ex, 300 Brooks Robinson – Ex-Mt, 325 Marichal – Nr-Mt, 341 Garvey – Nr-Mt, 350 Billy Williams – Nr-Mt, 370 Torre – Nr-Mt to Mt, 380 Ted Williams – Nr-Mt, 384 Fingers – Ex, 400 Aaron – Nr-Mt, 450 Gibson – Nr-Mt, 513 Ryan – Nr-Mt, 525 Banks – Ex, 530 Yastrzemski – Nr-Mt, 550 Killebrew – VG-Ex, 570 Palmer – Nr-Mt, 580 Perez – VG-Ex, 600 Mays – Ex-Mt, 605 Cepeda – Ex-Mt, 625 Brock – Nr-Mt, 630 Clemente – Ex-Mt, 640 Frank Robinson – Nr-Mt o/c and 740 Aparicio – Ex.
