1960 Leaf Complete Set (144 Plus One Variation)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,370
Complete set of 1960 Leaf, 54% Nr/Mt or better, 34% Ex-Mt, and 12% Ex (including a few lesser). Included with the set is one scarce variation card (#25a Grant error). Leaf packaged these unusual glossy black-and-white cards with marbles in an attempt to navigate contract terms with players, which dictated that only Topps could issue cards of modern ballplayers with bubble gum. Keys: #1 Aparicio (Ex+), 25a Grant (Error – white cap, Nr/Mt), 25b Grant (Corrected – dark cap, Ex), 27 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt), 37 Snider (Ex-Mt), 69 Wilhelm (Nr/Mt-Mt), 125 Anderson (Ex-Mt), 128 Cepeda (Nr/Mt), 141 Flood (Nr/Mt), and 144 Bunning (Vg-Ex). Crisp, clean, high-grade set of one of the era's most unusual and interesting issues. Total: 145 cards (144 cards plus variation of card #25). Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $2,370
