Default 1970's Topps most valuable cards

What do you think are the top 10-20 cards from the Topps sets from 1970-1975? Assuming grades are all equal of course, call it a PSA 8.

Would the list differ if the cards were graded PSA 9?

Thanks - Rob

Any 1970 or especially 1971 carries a huge premium in a 9 because of the full bleed color borders.

Yeah, I understand that, but I was referring to cards like:

'75 Brett rookie and Yount Rookie
'73 Schmidt Rookie

and so on...

Default Clarify?

Could you clarify what the question is? Top 20 in terms of value if graded high? Top 20 cards that are just quintessential? Top 20 cards that sell well (raw), etc...?? Our just favorite top 20?? Thanks. Not that this will shock anyone, but Nolan Ryan cards especially early ones actually sell very close to book unlike 95% of others...

Default early 70's toughies

Shhh. But the 1970 #464 Bench A.S. - well, I've got well over $100. for every PSA 8 you show me. The Aaron A.S. is also quite tough. Centering is BIG issue with both these cards. edited: Maybe over $200. for the Bench.

Kevin....you are a mercenary ,,,But I will trade you the 70 Cloths ( or at least I will trade you Bob's 70 Cloths) and my 70 and 72 Candy lid sets for a set of the Topps 1971 Artists Rookie Proofs
