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 1977 Topps Baseball Complete Excellent Mint set are collated and average a grade of Excellent Mint with a small percentage of the cards averaging a grade of Excellent and lower or Near Mint and higher. A few cards have centering issues and others have slightly 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:
#140 Schmidt: Excellent Mint
#234 Nolan Ryan (Record Breaker): Excellent
#473 Dawson RC: Excellent Mint
#476 Murphy RC: Excellent
#580 Brett: Excellent Mint
#650 Ryan: Excellent Mint
