Super High-Grade 1962 Topps "Civil War News" Complete Set (88)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,659.00

Extraordinary high-grade complete set of 1962 Topps "Civil War News." Each card has multicolored artwork of a battle scene or historical event. The text on the reverse is designed in the style of a newspaper. The extraordinary artwork and accurate historical information presented on these cards have always distinguished them as one of Topps' most ambitious projects. The entire set of eighty-eight cards was assembled directly from fresh cello packs by our consignor many years ago! Every card displays bold, vibrant color, bright white borders, and sharp corners. Condition is 32% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 24% Ex-Mt, and 44% Ex. Almost all of the lesser condition cards are due to centering, a common flaw within this issue. This is an outstanding, literally pack-fresh complete set of this very popular nonsport issue. Total: 88 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $1,659.00
