1972 Topps #761: A.L.- N.L. Rookie Stars (B.Oglivie, R.Cey, & B.Williams)

With only 13 cards left to go before completing the '72T set after more than a decade of working on it, I feel that this card was one of the most difficult ones in the set to obtain at a "reasonable" price (in comparison with its listed book value).  After monitoring various auctions for this card over the past few years, I was finally able to find one for under 20% BV, but only in a condition that should command less than half of what I paid.  This card typically sells for $10-$15 in the lowest grades, while most auctions are asking for well over its book value when found in a condition ranging around the upper-middle grades.  Perhaps this card is undervalued in current listings and should be raised to about $40.  Maybe not.  Either way, I was just glad to finally find one for under $5.      

BV: $25.00
Cost: $4.84 (paid 19% BV)
Condition: GD 2.0 (worth 10% BV)
Completion: 774 of 787 (98% complete)
