1961 Topps Complete Set (587)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,400
Presented is a very sharp-looking complete set of one of the era's most popular issues. The 1961 Topps set includes five different Mickey Mantle cards, and was Topps' first venture into the popular League Leader subset. The Most Valuable Player subset, an extremely difficult high-number run, and the rookie cards of Juan Marichal and Billy Williams also highlight this set. 33% Ex-Mt (including a few Nr/Mt), 32% Ex, 30% Vg-Ex, and 5% lesser (mostly Vg). Many of the cards graded Ex or lesser are downgraded solely due to light touches of wear to the corners or centering problems, which are extremely common to this issue. Consigned from an old-time collection! We have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #2 Maris (Vg-Ex), 10 B. Robinson (Vg), 20 Roberts (Vg-Ex), 35 Santo RC (Vg-Ex+), 44 AL HR Ldrs (Ex), 80 Killebrew (Ex), 120 Mathews (Ex), 141 B. Williams RC (Ex+), 150 Mays (5/95 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 160 Ford (Ex+), 200 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 207 Koufax/Podres (no top border, otherwise Ex), 211 Gibson (Ex), 228 Yankees Team (Ex), 260 Drysdale (Ex+), 287 Yastrzemski (Ex), 290 Musial (Ex+), 300 Mantle (VG/EX 50), 307 Mantle WS (Vg-Ex), 344 Koufax (95/5 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 350 Banks (Ex), 360 F. Robinson (5/95 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 388 Clemente (NM/MT 88), 401 Ruth (Ex-Mt), 405 Gehrig Benched (Ex+), 406 Mantle HR (2/98 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 415 Aaron (EX+ 70), 417 Marichal RC (EX+ 70), 425 Berra (Ex), 429 Kaline (2/98 T/B, otherwise Ex), 430 Mazeroski (Ex+), 443 Snider (Ex), 472 Berra MVP (Gd), 475 Mantle MVP (EX+ 70), 478 Maris MVP (2/98 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 482 Mays MVP (Vg-Ex), 484 Aaron MVP (99/1 L/R, otherwise Ex), 517 McCovey (99/1 L/R, otherwise Ex), 545 Wilhelm (Ex), 576 Maris AS (Ex), 577 Aaron AS (slight miscut, otherwise Ex-Mt), 578 Mantle AS (EX 60), 579 Mays AS (Ex-Mt), 586 Ford AS (Ex), and 589 Spahn AS (Vg-Ex). A very attractive and crisp complete set of this classic 1960s Topps issue. Total: 587 cards. SOLD FOR $2,400
