The State Of My 1971 Topps Collection


Pretty much since the start of my blog I've been working on completing a 1971 Topps set.  While I currently don't really have access to my card collection, I do have quite a bit of free time and so I thought I would take a closer look at exactly how close I was to completing the set.

750 Denny McLain $25.00 $9.99
751 Al Weis $15.00 $30.00
$1,329.00 $390.23

So I'm down to eight cards that have a book value of over $30.00.  My biggest hurtle seems to be finding a reasonably priced Roberto Clemente.

And again we see the incredible difference between "book value" and what you can actually find the cards for.  Granted some of these lower cost prices are for cards in rough shape but a thousand dollar difference is pretty amazing on just 70 cards.

What quality are you looking for? I have two cards on you list in my duplicates box. 634 (very nice condition except 80-20 centering left to right) and 743 (soft corners, surface crease, and 100-0 centering both side to side and top to bottom.)

If you want them, they are yours.
