Talk about a tough set to put together in mint condition! Kudos to anyone who can accomplish that feat. I love the 1971 Topps cards for their black border, facsimile signatures, green back and player portrait on the back with the stats. Unfortunately, as I previously mentioned, it's hard to find cards from this set that are in decent shape. Most of the time I'll find cards that are centered nicely but have some seriously rounded corners. Or if the corners are sharp then the card will have some serious wax stains. While my '71 Reds set isn't perfect, it's good enough for me to be happy with and it was one of my most favorite Reds team sets to put together.
