100% PSA Graded 1972 Topps Baseball Set #12 Registry - 42 Lots Closing Sunday 1/17 on eBay!
UPDATE - I decided to break up the set and place each card on eBay. Please go to the bottom of the thread to see the link.
Available is a fully PSA graded 1972 Topps Baseball set. This beautiful 787 card set consists of 4-10’s, 534-9’s, and 249-8’s. The set has an overall GPA with top bonuses of 8.668 and is listed as the 12the current finest set on the registry under the name MGT. As of April 19, 2020 the set had a Vintage Card Prices most recent sale value of $28,158 and a value based on the highest sale price of $37,851.
The set was compiled in 2008 by combining 1972 legend Frank Bakka’s second set along with Larry Emards’ (also known as King Kellogg) set. It was capped it off with adding some PSA upgrades from another partial set. The highest graded card and the best card that had the same grade from each of the three sources was used to make this set.
There are no half grades in the set as all cards were graded before the service was offered. I believe that many of the cards, if graded today, would come back higher. As a matter of fact, three of the four 10’s in the set were ones that were broke out of PSA 8 holders and resubmitted as part of free submissions associated with a collector club annual membership.
PSA 9 stars in the set include, #37 Carl Yastrzemski, #38 Carl Yastrzemski IA, #49 Willie Mays, #51 Harmon Killebrew, #52 Harmon Killebrew IA, #79 Red Sox Rookie Stars (Carlton Fisk RC), #130 Bob Gibson, #200 Lou Brock, #280 Willie McCovey, #285 Gaylord Perry, #299 Hank Aaron, #309 Roberto Clemente, #310 Roberto Clemente IA, #343 Willie Stargell Boyhood Photo, #347 Tom Seaver Boyhood Photo, #410 Fergie Jenkins, #420 Steve Carlton, #433 Johnny Bench, #434 Johnny Bench IA, #435 Reggie Jackson, #436 Reggie Jackson IA, #440 Thurman Munson, #445 Tom Seaver, #447 Willie Stargell, #448 Willie Stargell IA, #498 Brooks Robinson Boyhood Photo, #530 Don Sutton, #550 Brooks Robinson, #559 Pete Rose, #600 Al Kaline, #751 Steve Carlton Traded, and #777 Hoyt Wilhelm. There are also all the difficult to locate (low population) cards for the set collector.
