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 1979 Topps Baseball Complete Near Mint set
are collated. The cards average a grade of Near Mint
with a small percentage of the cards averaging a grade of Excellent Mint and
lower and Near Mint / 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.

#95 Robin Yount: Excellent
#115 Nolan Ryan: Excellent
