This is an unusual opportunity to pick up spectacular, uncirculated cards from Topps’ first issue of the decade of the 1970’s, pristine vending boxes that boast Near-Mint to Near-Mint to Mint treasures, jostled in this rare circumstance by having been searched to a degree and perhaps two or three dozen cards removed from the expected 1,000-card total. The cards have the kind of centering concerns that you can typically find in vending, with a number of cards consistently off-center to one side, though only a fraction of those would be severe enough to dictate an official off-center designation. The vending boxes themselves are in generally Excellent condition, revealing only slight wear at some of the corners. That aforementioned searching alternatively allows for us to provide bidders with a glimpse of the roster of the remaining cards, including duplication figures for the HOFers and specials. The Fourth Series Vending (card Nos. 373-459) includes Hall of Famers Tony Perez (8), Reggie Jackson (7) and Ron Santo (11), a total of 35 cards from the All-Star subset (nine McCoveys and eight Pete Roses), a dozen Orioles team cards and 22 Checklists, divided equally between the Fourth and Fifth Series. The Fifth Series Vending (card Nos. 460-546) includes Hall of Famers Joe Morgan (5) and Rollie Fingers (8), a total of 56 cards from the All-Star subset (14 Frank Robinson, 12 Denny McLain, 11 Juan Marichal, 10 Matty Alou and nine Sam McDowell), nine of the Reds team cards and 22 Checklists, divided equally between the Fifth and Sixth Series.
