Different Types of Complete Sets
Complete sets from Dean’s Cards are organized in three different ways:
1) (In Box) which means the set has actual scans of a few major star players.
2) (In Binder) indicates that the complete set comes in a binder with 9-page binder pages. The (In Binder) sets are available as they are acquired from personal collections.
3) If the set is listed with neither of these designations, then the set is built virtually from our million card inventory. The cards are individually graded, and front and back scans are provided. These sets are usually priced a bit higher than the sets in box and in binder due to the labor involved.
The cards in this 1978 Topps Baseball Complete Excellent Mint set are collated. The cards average a grade of Excellent Mint with a small percentage of the cards averaging a grade of Excellent and lower and Near Mint and higher. A few cards have slight centering issues and others have touched corners and edges. Overall the set looks nice and would be a great addition to any sports card collection.
The high-dollar cards grade as follows:
#7 Jackson Record Breaker: Excellent Mint
#36 Murray RC: Excellent Mint
#100 Brett: Excellent Mint
#200 Jackson: Excellent Mint
#400 Ryan: Excellent Mint
#707 Molitor & Trammell RC: Near Mint
