Last one, I had a full 1970 Topps baseball card collection with many cards double and triple, the "good" cards were in excellent condition as once I got a card that I did not have, I put it up in a box. I also had an 1971 full set but not quite as many secondary and tertiary cards as I was getting a little older and spent less time collecting. As with the 1970 set, the primary cards were all in excellent shape and once I found them I put them, ordered, in a box and maybe pulled them out 5 times in 40 years to view. One "special card that I had was (won it "flipping") was a 1954 rookie card of Hank Aaron, it was in very good condition with all sharp edges and corners, and I sealed it in plastic some time in the early 1980's Thanks
This is one that I really want to turn over to a sports specialist. I have a colleague in mind and will forward this to him but he is not always on here. Hopefully I can find him through his home email too. Please have a bit of patience. Thanks so much. Dori
Hello,My name isXXXXX and I am dori's Sports expert. First of all, THANK YOU! for having some trading cards that are worth talking about. Many hall of famers can be found in the 1970 set including: Yastrzemski, Wilhelm, Jackson, Killebrew, Niekro, Williams, Sparky Anderson, Marichal, Carlton, B. XXXXX, XXXXXkins, McCovey, Carew, Seaver, Aparicio, Brock, Clemente, Perez, Bunning, Mazeroski, Palmer, Stargell, Aaron, Fingers, Gibson, Morgan, Cepeda, Perry, Hunter, Rose, Mays, Sutton, Banks, Kaline, Bench, F. Robinson, and Ryan. If you were to buy all of the the cards in the set today, individually, it would probably cost you @ $7,000.00. Conversely, you could sell them all individually for @ the same amount. However, most full sets are valued as a group, and on that basis, depending on condition, your 1970 collection of Topps trading cards has a value of $1,600.00 - $4,500.00. Condition is so critical!! The duplicates would have to be all taken out and evaluated as small groups of similar players HOF's and non-HOF's for instance.The 1971 set:
There are many great rookie cards in this set including: the multi-player card with Dusty Baker and Don Baylor, and the individual cards of Bert Blyleven, Dave Concepcion, and Steve Garvey.
This set is loaded with hall of famers including: Jackson, Niekro, Hunter, McCovey, Carlton, Mazeroski, Perry, Seaver, Kaline, Carew, Stargell, Bench, XXXXX, XXXXXkins, B. Robinson, Marichal, B. Williams, T. Williams (MG), Fingers, Aaron, Gibson, Ryan, Banks, Yaz, Killebrew, Palmer, Perez, Mays, Brock, Clemente, F. Robinson, and Aparicio.
The value of this set ranges from $1,425.00 - $3,565.00, also depending on condition!! Again, you probably would sell the duplicate cards separately, or in small like groups!
The 1954 Topps #128 Henry "Hank" Aaron rookie card, with signature, has a value of $350.00 - $1,200.00, all depending on condition. The $1,200.00 card is Near Mint/Mint,. That would be an, at least *.0 - 10.0 graded card.
This has been a pleasure! I hope I helped you!!

Hi again, I just saw a mistake in my typing just as I pushed answer! As to the card grading, I meant 8.0 - 10.0, not *.0Randy Man
