There’s few vintage baseball sets that stand out and capture your attention quite like the colorful 1975 Topps Baseball series.
The set is best known for four key rookie cards of Hall of Famers George Brett, Robin Yount, Gary Carter and Jim Rice, as well as valuable cards of such legends as Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, Nolan Ryan and Mike Schmidt.
The set is also known for its bright, mulit-colored borders that make it one of the most colorful and polarizing sets in trading card history. Yet the rainbow of colored borders also makes it one of the toughest complete sets to find and assemble in top condition.
But Goldin Auctions has landed a gem with one of the finest 1975 Topps sets ever offered at auction. The set is one of the highlights of Goldin’s Monthly Sports & Pop Culture Auction that closes March 12-15.
The set, which currently ranks #2 on the PSA Set Registry, features several high-end and low-population cards, which have all been graded by PSA. It has a 9.944 GPA, just 0.056 below the No. 1-ranked set, and had a bid of $101,000 on March 11.
The four elite rookie cards are all graded PSA 9, along with cards of other stars like Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton, Rod Carew and Harmon Killebrew.
The set features 308 cards graded PSA GEM MT 10, including such popular and valuable cards as Hank Aaron A Kaline, Brooks Robinson, Carlton Fisk, Phil Niekro, Johnny Bench, Carl Yastrzemski, Reggie Jackson, Pete Rose Tom Seaver and more.
The Goldin auction also features an array of rare, high-graded basketball cards, including a 2009-10 National Treasures Centry Gold Steph Curry rookie auto patch card with a current bid of $475,000.
