This is a truly spectacular companion lot to another that featured Cubbies Team sets from mostly the 1960’s. This time it’s the decade of the 1970’s and into the early 1980’s, with the latter years touching upon some of the legendary Cubs who would herald in a resurgence of the team’s fortunes that culminated with a 1984 NL Divisional Title. Throughout the early years of the 1970’s, the Cubs roster boasted many of that same phalanx of Hall of Famers from the earlier decade, including Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Billy Williams, Leo Durocher and Ferguson Jenkins, and as they retired the club added the likes of Bruce Sutter, Bill Madlock, Bill Buckner, Ken Holtzman, Rick Reuschel; as the 1980’s dawned, the roster included Leon Durham, Bill Campbell, Larry Bowa and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, along with many of the other stars of the period, team cards, League Leaders and other specials. Such is the inventory of this remarkable accumulation, most in the highest of grades, with great color and photo registration, superb gloss and super-clean backs. 1970-83 Topps Team Sets – 1970 Topps (31), Generally Ex-Mt to Near-Mint, including No. 170 Williams – Ex-Mt, 240 Jenkins – Ex-Mt, 291 Durocher – Ex-Mt, 630 Banks – VG-Ex and 670 Santo – VG-Ex; 1971 Topps (33), Excellent to Near-Mint, emphasis Ex-Mt, including No. 220 Santo – Nr-Mt o/c, 280 Jenkins – Ex o/c, 525 Banks – Fair and 609 Durocher – Nr-Mt; 1972 Topps (33), Near-Mint or better, a couple Ex-Mt, including No. 410 Jenkins – Nr-Mt o/c, 439 Williams – Nr-Mt o/c, 440 Williams In Action – Nr-Mt to Mt, 555 Santo – Ex-Mt and 576 Durocher – Ex-Mt; 1973 Topps (27), Mostly Near-Mint, a few better and below, including No. 155 Santo – Nr-Mt, 180 Jenkins – Nr-Mt to Mt and 200 Williams – Nr-Mt to Mt; 1974 Topps (35), Ex-Mt to Nr-Mt, emphasis Nr-Mt, including 110 Williams – Nr-Mt and 270 Santo Nr-Mt o/c, with five Rookies, three Traded and a Checklist; 1975 Topps (29), Excellent to Ex-Mt, a few Nr-Mt, a half dozen Very Good and a couple below that; 1976 Topps (26), Ex-Mt to Nr-Mt, emphasis Nr-Mt, a few Excellent, including No. 640 Madlock – Nr-Mt; 1977 Topps (25), Excellent to Ex-Mt, a few below to Very Good, a couple Near-Mint, including No. 144 Sutter Rookie – Nr-Mt, 250 Madlock – Ex and 360 Monday – Ex-Mt; 1978 Topps (30), Mostly Near-Mint, couple above and below, including No. 325 Sutter – Nr-Mt, 473 Buckner – Nr-Mt, 590 Murcer – Nr-Mt and 663 Reuschel – Nr-Mt; 1979 Topps (28), Nr-Mt to Nr-Mt to Mt, including No. 135 Murcer – Nr-Mt-Plus, 240 Reuschel – Nr-Mt to Mt, 346 Buckner – Nr-Mt to Mt, 451 Sutter – Nr-Mt to Mt o/c, 513 Johnson – Nr-Mt to Mt and 522 Holtzman – Nr-Mt to Mt o/c; 1980 Topps (28), Nr-Mt to Nr-Mt to Mt, including No. 17 Sutter – Nr-Mt to Mt, 133 Buckner – Nr-Mt to Mt, 175 Reuschel – Nr-Mt and 296 Holtzman – Nr-Mt; 1981 Topps (27), Nr-Mt to Nr-Mt to Mt, including No. 590 Sutter – Nr-Mt o/c and 625 Buckner – Nr-Mt to Mt o/c; 1982 Topps (28), Nr-Mt to Mt, a couple Nr-Mt, including No. 580 Bonds – Nr-Mt to Mt, 607 Durham – Nr-Mt to Mt and 760 Buckner – Nr-Mt; and 1983 Topps (26), Nr-Mt to Mt, a couple Nr-Mt, including No. 83 Sandberg, 125 Durham, 152 Johnstone, 230 Jenkins, 250 Buckner, 305 Bowa, 436 Campbell and 699 Smith.
