1962-1971 Topps Insert/Oddball Set Collection (11 sets, 633 cards) including 1966 Topps Rub-Offs
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200
Outstanding collection of Topps insert/oddball issues consisting of ten complete sets and one near-complete set spanning the years 1962 to 1971. Far scarcer than standard Topps issues of the era, the unusual oddball sets Topps was forever coming up with in the 1960s and early 1970s continue to add a tremendous dimension of interest to collecting today, just as they did when they were originally issued. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1962 Topps Stamps Complete Set (200): Each stamp is housed inside of a small plastic sleeve, which has been taped into the original collector's album designed to store the set. This manner of presentation is ideal as it has preserved the stamps so that they may be removed very easily and without harm if desired. Overall Ex to Nr/Mt condition, with a few lesser due to centering. Album is Ex, with a few small, scattered tears to the fragile interior pages. 2) 1965 Topps Embossed Complete Set (72): Grades Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex). 3) 1966 Topps Rub-Offs Near-Complete Set (117/120): Grades 75% Ex to Ex-Mt and 25% Vg to Vg-Ex. 4) 1967 Topps Pin-Ups Complete Set (32): Grades Ex to Nr/Mt, with four Vg-Ex. All with fold lines as issued. 5) 1968 Topps Game Complete Set (33): Grades 66% Ex to Ex-Mt and 34% Vg to Vg-Ex. 6) 1969 Topps Decals Complete Set (48): Grades 71% Ex to Ex-Mt and 29% Vg to Vg-Ex. 7) 1969 Topps Deckle Edge Complete Set (33 plus two variations for 35 total): Grades 71% Ex to Ex-Mt and 29% Vg to Vg-Ex. 8) 1970 Topps Posters Complete Set (24): Grades Ex, with two Vg-Ex. All with fold lines as issued. 9) 1970 Topps Scratch-Offs Complete Set (24): All unscratched and unmarked. Grades Vg-Ex to Ex. 10) 1970 Topps Story Booklets Complete Set (24): Grades Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex). 11) 1971 Topps Scratch-Offs Complete Set (24): All unscratched and unmarked. Grades Vg-Ex to Ex. Very neat collection of eleven unusual complete sets. The 1966 Topps Rub-Offs set included here is of special note as a particularly scarce and substantial insert set that is becoming more and more appreciated as time passes. Total: 633 items.
