    1969-70 Topps Basketball "Rulers" Insert Near Set (22/24). One of the more inventive insert series ever produced by Topps was the 2-1/2" x 10" thin paper "Rulers" which had a cartoon illustration of the player along-side a ruler showing off the great heights the NBA was accustomed to. This series was inserted into wax packs of the first modern era Topps basketball set in 1969-70. Missing #'s 5 and 6 for completion, two have been graded by PSA. All have folds as issued. Highlights include: #'s 2 West (FR, pinhole), 9 Havlicek (VG/EX), 10 Alcindor "Abdul-Jabbar" (VG/EX), 11 Chamberlain (FR, pinholes), 12 Thurmond (EX), 19 Reed (VG/EX), 20 Monroe (PSA EX/MT 6) and 24 Robertson (PSA EX 5). Grades 73% VG/EX to EX with one nicer, 27% lesser.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
