Thinking of Selling a Graded 1972 (#10) Baseball Set - What is the Best Way?
While I have been collecting graded cards for years, this is the first time I’ve posted the board in quite some time. I’m hoping that you guys who are more up to date on what is going on in the hobby can help me out.
I have a 1972 Topps Baseball card set that I’m considering selling.
The 1972 set is something that I’ve had for a long time. I took my set that was about 50% complete and then purchased two more complete sets. One was Larry Emard’s (who went by the name “King Kellogg”) and the other set was Frank Bakka’s second set. From there I combined them and kept the highest graded card and/or the sharpest, best centered card if there were multiples within the same grade. The set is 100% complete with 5-10’s, 529-9’s, and 253-8’s. It would rank 10th on the current finest list with a GPA of 8.66 and a GPA with top bonuses of 8.67. Most of the cards were graded before half grades came out. I believe that a some of the cards, if graded today, would come back higher. Each of the 10’s in the set I popped out of 8 holders and resubmitted as part of my collector club membership some years ago. Using most recent sale on VCP, the set came up with a value of $22,394.
I’d kind of like to sell them each off as a complete set, but I’m curious to hear what you guys have to say and what kind of guidance you would give me.
Thanks for your help!
