1962 Topps Complete Master Set (598 plus 96 variations)
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,680
4% Ex-Mt, 26% Ex, 63% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 7% lesser. Presented is a complete master set of 1962 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets. As a master set, included is the complete standard set of 598 cards PLUS all ninety-six variations for a total of 694 cards! The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. The flush-to-the-border brown wood-grain design of the 1962 Topps set makes this issue particularly susceptible to edge and corner wear, and makes the assembly of high-grade sets all the more difficult. It is rare to find a complete set offered with all the variations, which include pose variations, checklist variations, and "green tints" from the second series. Keys: #1 Maris (Vg-Ex+), 5 Koufax (Vg-Ex), 10 Clemente (Vg-Ex+), 18 Mantle/Mays (Fr), 25 Banks (Ex), 30 Mathews (Vg+), 45 Robinson (Vg-Ex), 50 Musial (Ex+), 53 Maris/Mantle LL (Vg-Ex), 70 Killebrew (Vg-Ex), 100 Spahn (miscut, otherwise Vg), 150 Kaline (Ex), 199 Perry (Vg-Ex+), 200 Mantle (Fr), 251 Yankees (Ex), 300 Mays (Ex-Mt), 310 Ford (Vg), 313 Maris IA (Vg+), 318 Mantle IA (Vg-Ex), 320 Aaron (Fr), 340 Drysdale (Ex), 350 Robinson (no bottom border, otherwise Ex), 360 Berra (Ex), 387 Brock (Vg-Ex+), 394 Aaron AS (Vg), 395 Mays AS (Vg-Ex), 401 Maris/Cepeda (Vg-Ex), 425 Yastrzemski (Vg-Ex+), 471 Mantle AS (Vg+), 500 Snider (Fr), 530 Gibson SP (no top border, otherwise Vg-Ex), 544 McCovey SP (Vg), 575 Schoendienst SP (Ex+), 592 Bouton (Vg-Ex), 594 Uecker (Gd), 596 Pepitone (Vg), and 598 Hickman (Vg). Also included is an original five-cent wax wrapper (small piece missing on left edge, otherwise Ex). An outstanding complete master set of this classic early Topps issue. Total: 694 cards (set of 598 plus 96 variations) and one wrapper. SOLD FOR $1,680
