This is a 1973 Topps Detroit Tigers Near Team Set. We design the Near Complete Team Sets using the majority of cards for that team and leaving out the costly cards. While we will occasionally omit some expensive super-star rookie cards, most of the removed cards are the expensive high numbers, short-prints, and multi-player rookie cards, which add little benefit to the team set collector. The other cards can then be added, from our inventory of over a million cards, as your budget allows. In order to keep the price of this 1973 Topps Detroit Tigers Near Complete Team Set down the following cards are not included in the set: #537 Bill Slayback, #560 Frank Howard and #585 Joe Niekro. This 1973 Topps Team Set has all of the standard cards. The cards not included are expensive multi-team rookie cards, that were left out of the team set to keep the cost down. The 1973 Topps was the first set to feature all of multi-player rookie cards by position, instead of by their respective teams. To make a bad idea even worse, Topps waited until 7th Series to issue this cards, making them expensive, as well as undesired. As a result, the 1973 Topps multi-player rookie cards are not considered part of 1973 Topps Team Sets. We feel that they do not offer enough value to team sets to offset the additional expense. If you dis-agree, the 1973 multi-team rookie cards can be purchased individually on our site.
