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.
Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $1,531.35.
