    Description

    1974 Topps Test "Deckle Edge" Baseball Complete Set (72) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This set ranks #1 on the SGC Set Registry with a 90.7 GPA. This extremely scarce "test" series saw very little distribution and marks one of the final large scale test releases by Topps. The concept was familiar as it picked up the decorative border treatment and clean black-and-white with cyan-colored facsimile signatures. To add interest, a brief bio is printed on the reverse side and the dimensions were increased to almost standard post card size. Complete sets of 72 cards are rarely offered and few could match the amazing quality of this matching "Grey Backs" assembly. Population numbers have been added below to emphasize the superiority of this almost 100% Near Mint or better presentation.
