10% Nr/Mt, 32% Ex-Mt, 52% Ex, and 6% Vg-Ex. Highlighted by the rookie cards of HOFers Nolan Ryan and Johnny Bench, the 1968 Topps set also includes the extremely popular “combo” cards featuring more than one player with #480 Superstars (with Roberto Clemente), #490 Superstars (Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle, and Willie Mays), and #530 Bird Belters (Frank and Brooks Robinson). Seven cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #20 B. Robinson (Ex), 45 Seaver (NM-MT 8), 50 Mays (Ex), 80 Carew (Ex-Mt), 100 Gibson (Ex-Mt+), 110 Aaron (Ex), 145 Drysdale (Ex+), 150 Clemente (Vg-Ex+), 177 Ryan RC (EX 5), 220 Killebrew (Ex+), 230 Rose (Ex), 240 Kaline (Ex+), 247 Bench RC (EX-MT+ 6.5), 250 Yastrzemski (Ex), 280 Mantle (NM+ 7.5), 330 Maris (Ex-Mt+), 355 Banks (Vg-Ex+), 408 Carlton (Ex-Mt+), 480 Manager's Dream (NM 7), 490 Superstars (MINT 9 [OC]), 500 F.

Very clean and crisp Ex to Nr/Mt set with the usual number of mostly minor centering problems. The SMR value for just six of the graded cards (factoring in the two half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the one qualified card or the 591 ungraded cards!) is $755. Total: 599 cards (complete set of 598 plus one variation). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,666
