1964 Topps Collection (1,250 cards) Including More Than 60 Hall of Famers!
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $5,400
Presented is a tremendous high-grade collection of approximately 1,250 cards from the 1964 Topps set, highlighted by more than sixty Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, and Sandy Koufax. 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 four complete or near-complete sets, which were sold in past auctions and realized between $7,800 and $14,400 due to their extraordinary quality! This collection represents the balance and includes heavy duplication. The 1964 Topps set is loaded with stars and Hall of Famers of the era, and also includes several extremely popular multiplayer cards featuring great legends of the early 1960s. The cards in this collection range in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Ex-Mt+), with all cards appearing bright, crisp, and clean. Centering is the only issue on almost all of the cards graded Ex (including some technically lesser due to more severe centering problems). We submitted six cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #35 Mathews (Nr/Mt), five 50 Mantle (EX/NM 80, EX+ 70, two no right border, and one drastic miscut), 55 Banks (Ex), two 120 Drysdale (both Nr/Mt), 125 Rose (miscut, otherwise Ex-Mt), two 155 Snider (both miscut, no border on right or bottom), three 177 Killebrew (Ex-Mt, Ex, and miscut, otherwise Ex), 200 Koufax (NM+ 86), 230 B. Robinson (Ex), two 250 Kaline (both Ex-Mt), 300 Aaron (NM 84), two 306 Mays/Cepeda (both Ex-Mt), two 331 AL Bombers Mantle/Maris (EX/NM 80 and EX 60), two 342 Stargell (Ex-Mt and miscut, otherwise Ex-Mt), two 350 McCovey (both Nr/Mt), 380 Ford (Ex-Mt+), six 540 Aparicio (two Ex-Mt and four Ex), and 541 Niekro RC (Vg). The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades for just the six graded cards is $670. This is a very high-quality collection of cards from this popular 1960s Topps issue! Total: approximately 1,250 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $5,400
