1962 Topps Collection (545 cards) Including More Than 50 Hall of Famers!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,920

Presented is an extremely sizeable collection of approximately 545 cards from the 1962 Topps set, highlighted by more than fifty Hall of Famers, including Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, thirty-three Babe Ruth Specials, and twenty-nine League Leaders cards. This collection has been consigned by the family of an old-time collector who kept his sets stored away safely for decades. These cards were very likely pulled directly from packs and stored away in the year of issue! When we received the cards, they were stored tightly in row boxes, from which we proceeded to build a complete set, which was sold in a past auction and realized $10,800 due to its extraordinary quality! This collection represents the balance and includes heavy duplication (159 different cards are represented within). All cards are bright, crisp, and clean, with centering the only flaw on many of the cards. Approximately 35% of the collection grades Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (including some better) and 65% would grade lesser due to centering. Keys: two #1 Maris (both Ex), four 5 Koufax (Ex-Mt, Ex+, and two Ex), two 10 Clemente (Ex and Vg-Ex), two 18 Mantle/Mays (Ex and Vg-Ex), 29 Stengel (Ex), two 30 Mathews (Nr/Mt and Ex-Mt), two 40 Cepeda (Ex+ and Ex), two 45 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt and Ex-Mt), 50 Musial (Ex), three 53 Maris/Mantle LL (two Nr/Mt and Ex+), three 70 Killebrew (Nr/Mt and two Ex-Mt), six 139 Babe Hits 60 (three Ex-Mt, two Ex+ and Vg-Ex), three 140 Ruth/Gehrig (Ex-Mt and two Ex), three 150 Kaline (Ex-Mt and two Ex), and four 170 Santo (Ex-Mt, two Ex+, and Vg-Ex). This is a substantial collection of cards from this popular 1960s Topps issue with many high-quality cards included! Total: approximately 545 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,920
