Description



Extraordinary 1976 Topps Baseball signed near set of (658/660) cards plus (44/44) Traded cards. No collecting stone has been left unturned in this gallery which includes virtually every player along with multi-signed leader and specialty subset cards. Several key players have signed across multiple subsets. Includes (68) total Hall of Fame endorsements and (88) now deceased players. The autographs project (“8”) penmanship throughout while the cardboard surfaces generally present in the (EX to EX-MT) range with some variance. In addition to period autographs, modern legends such as Gwynn, Ripken Jr. and Ryan have signed respective All-Time Great subset cards. Quite simply, the time and expense in piecing together this comprehensive edition is simply incredible. Missing only the near impossible #476 Moose (died in October 1976) and #650 Munson for completion. Auction LOA from JSA. Highlights include:
