One of the most difficult aspects of completing high grade Topps sets are obtaining high grade examples of the tough high number series, those issued in reduced amounts late in the baseball seasons. To help your high grade collecting efforts, we bring you complete high number series from the years 1966, 1967, and 1970 through 1972. These years are some of the most difficult high numbers series to locate in high grade, as centering is almost always a serious problem to overcome. We provide you a group of high number cards in high grade, with an emphasis on centering. Now, not every very tough card will be well centered, but the majority of cards here are very nicely centered. Sharp corners, crisp focus and nice gloss are other hallmarks. This is the perfect lot for the set builder wanting to upgrade, or the dealer wanting to refresh his high grade inventory. All yearly runs are primarily NM to NM/MT (with a few lesser) unless noted.
