Description

The Ultimate 1974 Topps Baseball Experience! Honored by PSA as the 2009 “modern set of the year” and having earned top-billing on the competitive registry since 2005, the offered 1974 Topps Baseball PSA graded master, Traded and Team Checklist sets constitutes a labor of love between our consignor and an issue he began piecing together 40 years ago.
