1966-1967 Donruss and Topps "Monkees" Complete Set Collection (5 sets) plus Display Boxes, Packs, Wrappers, and Singles
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $592.50
Collection of materials, including complete sets, single cards, display boxes, packs, and wrappers, from "The Monkees" sets produced by Donruss and Topps during the late 1960s. The Monkees, the famous pop band headlined by Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz, gained immense notoriety during the mid-1960s as a result of their popular NBC television show. In an effort to capitalize on the craze surrounding the band, Donruss produced a number of sets devoted exclusively to the band and featuring scenes from the show while Topps joined in later with a single 1967 issue of the same focus. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1966 Donruss "Monkees - Series A" Complete Sets (2 sets, 88 total cards plus 32 duplicates): Each set contains forty-four cards featuring color scenes from the Monkees' television show. One set ranges in grade from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (including a few Ex) while the other is in Ex to Nr/Mt condition (including a few Nr/Mt-Mt). The lesser-graded cards are all crisp and pack-fresh but downgraded due to centering or light corner touches. Also included are thirty-two duplicates (twenty-one different) in Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt condition. 2) 1966 Donruss "Monkees" Sepia Series Five-Cent Wax Pack: Contains five cards; the glue seal has loosened but the wrapper remains in Excellent condition. 3) 1966 Donruss "Monkees - Series A" Empty Display Box and Wrappers: Box is in Excellent condition with a small area of light staining on the bottom panel. Two wrappers grade Nr/Mt. 4) 1967 Topps "Monkees Flip Movies" Complete Sets (3 sets, 48 total booklets plus nine duplicates): Each set of sixteen booklets features black-and-white still photos from a Monkees' television show episode that form a moving action scene when flipped. These sets are in overall Nr/Mt condition with light toning visible on some booklets. Also included are nine duplicate booklets (seven different) in slightly lesser condition. 5) 1967 Topps "Monkees Flip Movies" Five-Cent Wax Pack: Nr/Mt condition, contains one booklet. 6) 1967 Topps "Monkees Flip Movies" Empty Display Boxes and Wrappers: Two boxes, both in Near Mint condition. Six wrappers in Ex to Nr/Mt condition. 7) 1964 Topps "Beatles" Collection of 5 Wrappers: One wrapper from "Beatles - Color Photos" and two each from "Beatles - B&W" and "Beatles Movie" sets. Nr/Mt condition. This is an outstanding collection of material from these classic mid-1960s nonsport sets devoted to the pop culture phenomenon that was The Monkees. Total: 177 cards/booklets, two packs, three display boxes, and thirteen wrappers. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $592.50
