1958 to 1969 Topps Football Complete Set Collection (11 Sets, 1,904 Cards)

Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $6,000

Extremely substantial and comprehensive collection of nine complete and two near-complete Topps football sets (1958 and 1962, each missing one card), comprised of a complete set collection spanning the years 1958 through 1969 (missing only 1965, which is offered separately, for completion). Though they do not have as many cards as the Topps baseball sets of the era, and are not as valuable, these football sets are actually rarer than their baseball counterparts. Each set is loaded with all the great stars and Hall of Famers. We have selected four cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) 1958 Near-Set (131/132 cards): 60% grade Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 30% Ex, and 10% Vg-Ex (with a few slightly lesser including one trimmed). Missing only #62 Brown rookie for completion (offered individually in this auction due to its extreme high grade). Keys: #22 Unitas (Ex-Mt+), 66 Starr (Vg-Ex+), and 90 Jurgensen RC (Ex+). 2) 1959 Set (176 cards): 30% grade Ex (with a couple Ex-Mt), 40% Vg-Ex, and 30% Vg (with some slightly lesser). Keys: #1 Unitas (Ex), 10 Brown (Vg), 23 Starr (Vg), and 82 Hornung (Ex). 3) 1960 Set (132 cards): 55% grade Ex (with some slightly better), 15% Vg-Ex, 15% Vg, and 15% slightly lesser grades.
