1960 Leaf Complete Set with 107 Autographed Cards

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,560

This 1960 Leaf complete set is extremely noteworthy for the fact that 107 of the 145 cards have been signed by the respective player, including both variations of #25 Jim Grant. Though 1960 Leaf has very few stars, it is loaded with very obscure players and even includes some players who were career minor leaguers (they never played a single game in the Major Leagues). The extremely unusual composition of players in the set makes 1960 Leaf, card for card, one of the most difficult of all sets to collect and complete in autographed form. The thirty-eight UNSIGNED cards in the set, some of which have been professionally graded by PSA (grades noted for those examples), are #12, 14, 17, 18, 26, 33, 42, 54, 61, 66, 72, 73 (NM 7), 76, 78 (EX-MT+ 6.5), 80 (NM 7), 81, 82 (NM 7 [ST]), 84, 86, 88, 91, 93, 95 (EX+ 5.5), 97, 98, 99, 100 (EX-MT+ 6.5), 106 (NM-MT 8), 111, 112, 113 (NM-MT 8), 114, 120, 121, 122, 136, 137, and 141. All of the 107 autographed cards have been signed on the front, with signatures ranging from "8" to "10," averaging "9" (31% are signed in ball-point pen and 69% in Sharpie marker or felt-tip pen). Three of the autographed cards (#1, 25 [Grant dark cap], and 125) have been encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signatures certified as "Authentic." Keys: #1 Aparicio (Ex), 25a Grant/white cap (Vg), 25b Grant/dark cap (Vg), 27 Robinson (Ex), 37 Snider (Vg), 69 Wilhelm (Vg-Ex), 125 Anderson (Ex), 128 Cepeda (Ex), 144 Bunning (Vg). The remainder of the cards grade Ex overall (a few slightly lesser, a few slightly better). Total: 145 cards (107 signed). LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $1,560
