1991 AW Sports Boxing Complete Set (151): #2 PSA Set Registry! (9.04 GPA)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $533
Mind-boggling ultra high-grade complete 151-card set of 1991 AW Sports boxing cards, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. The AW Sports set is one of the premier relatively modern boxing-card issues, featuring a mix of boxing legends from the past, including Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Rocky Graziano, and then-current fighters, including Buster Douglas, on full-color photographic cards (included are a few black-and-white images by design). The offered set is in remarkably outstanding high grade. We're not even sure how our consignor was able to assemble the set in such extraordinary condition, but it's here, so we know he did it! Assembling this perfect set (to add to one of the best vintage boxing-card collections ever assembled) was obviously a labor of love, and obviously involved buying and sending in a lot of cards in for grading! The set is comprised of forty-one GEM MT 10s (including Douglas, Foreman, Graziano, and Ali/Foreman), eighty MINT 9s (including Leonard, Johnson, and Marciano), three NM-MT+ 8.5 (#30, 47, 74), twenty-four NM-MT 8s, one NM+ 7.5 (#31), one NM 7 (#132), and one VG 3 (#88). This is an extraordinary high-grade (yet still relatively affordable) classic boxing-card set. It is easy to see why this set has been of growing interest to vintage boxing collectors in recent years, and we suspect this interest will continue to increase in the years to come. But it is unlikely that many 151-card sets will ever be painstakingly assembled in this virtually perfect MINT condition. Total: 151 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $533
