Complete Numerical MATTE Set - 82 Cards. Card #s 1 a+b - 41 a+b. These are the original - 1985 Topps - U.
All cards are Matte back. The matte card stock is thinner than the glossies, making them harder to keep in nice condition. This is a very consistent set with regards to all variations.. For numbers 5, 8, and 29 (the six cards that were produced with an award and a checklist back) the three "a" cards have the award back and the three "b" cards have the checklist back.Also, every "a" card has single asterisk on reverse and every "b" card has the double asterisk keeping this very nice for people with a little OCD, like me. All cards are g raded by Professional Sports Authenticator. The lowest grade is a 5 (EXCELLENT), the highest is a 10 (GEM MINT). Most are 9's (MINT), 9oc's (MINT off-center) and 8's (NEAR MINT-MINT). Some of the 9oc's would be 8's if they showed more wear since centering is stricter for the 9's. Only three cards are below a 7 and only eight cards (including those three) are below an 8. The average grade is 8.10 if counting the 9 qualifiers as 8's. Counting them as 9's the average is 8.49. My title shows the average as if they were an 8.5.
There are no half grades and no qualifiers below a 9. 5a Dead TED (Award) 9. 5b JAY Decay (Checklist) 9.8a ADAM Bomb (Award) 9oc. 8b Blasted BILLY (Checklist) 8. 29a Bony JOANIE (Award) 9oc. 29b Thin LYNN (Checklist) 9. 30a New Wave DAVE 9oc. 31a Run Down RHODA 9.
So the quantities of each grade are. 10 GEM MINT = 2.9 MINT (OC) = 31. 9 MINT (ST) = 1. 8 NEAR MINT-MINT = 24. 7 NEAR MINT = 5. Photos show these exact cards being offered.
Pics 1-6 show the "a" cards and 7-12 show the "b" cards. Please note that I have several duplicates of these OS1 Matte PSA graded cards listed separately. In my opinion I've put the best of each card in this listing but if you see one or more that you like better I will swap it/them out. This set contains an 8 for #14a Potty Scotty.
I have a 9oc for #14a listed separately so if you prefer that one, I will swap it out. This set contains a 9oc for #39b.
I have an 8 plus another 9oc listed for #39b so if you prefer either one of those, I will swap it out. If you'd rather have an award instead of a checklist, I will swap it out. So please message me if this is something that interests you.I will send you more pics as needed. Everything will be securely packaged and fully insured. If you're in Canada, the U. Scandinavia, Australia or New Zealand, there should be no problem and you should see two options: 1. If you have any questions, please ask. I will respond back to you.
