    Signed 1979 TCMA "Diamond Greats" Near Set (374/399). CORRECTION: Minus the three secretarial cards (removed) there are 374 autographed cards in this presentation.

    In the 1970's, TCMA began producing an extensive inventory of cards sets devoted to players of the past. A massive 399-card effort showcased 25 players from the 16 original (pre-expansion) teams called "Diamond Greats" were made with the intention of getting fans to reach out and have the cards autographed. Doing so was no easy effort. Offered is a fantastic assembly of 374 of the 399 cards (NM to NM/MT or better with a few exceptions). Each and every card has been autographed by the featured player! Missing #'s 10, 11, 26, 27, 29, 50, 71, 77, 98, 105, 132, 153, 162, 213, 222, 225, 292, 318, 344, 353, 358 and 397. #226 not produced. Includes: Encapsulated PSA/DNA Authentic: #'s 1 J.
