1973 Topps Baltimore Orioles Near Team Set

Year 1973
Manufacturer Topps
Team Orioles

VG/EX+ - 4.5

This is a 1973 Topps Baltimore Orioles 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. The 1973 Topps cards not in this Near Team Set are the higher-priced multi-team rookie cards. They were omitted in order to keep the cost down. The 1973 Topps was the first set to feature all of multi-player rookie cards by their positions, rather than their respective teams. Topps also waited until 7th Series to issue this cards, making them expensive, as well as ugly. For these reasons, the 1973 Topps multi-player rookie cards are not considered part of 1973 Topps Team Set. We feel that they do not offer enough value to team sets to offset the added cost. The 1973 multi-team rookie cards can be purchased individually on our site.
