1960 Fleer "Spins & Needles" Complete Set (80): #1 PSA Set Registry (9.60 GPA) Including 49 PSA GEM MINT 10s!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $8,400

Presented is a simply astounding, ultra high-grade complete set of all eighty cards in Fleer's "Spins & Needles" series. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA, and the complete set ranks as the number one all-time finest set on the PSA Set Registry with an extremely impressive GPA of 9.60. An incredible forty-nine cards are graded GEM MINT 10, while the remaining thirty-one cards grade MINT 9! The 1960 Fleer "Spins & Needles" set is one of several produced during the late 1950s and early 1960s dedicated to popular musicians and performers of the era, including Della Reese, Paul Anka, Pat Boone, and Jerry Lee Lewis. The front of each card features a brilliant image of the performer or act framed by a simple yellow border, with biographical and discography information on the reverse. PSA Grading Composite: GEM MINT 10 (49 cards): #2, 3, 9, 12-14, 16-18, 20, 21, 23-25, 27, 28, 31, 32, 34-37, 40-46, 48-51, 53-57, 60, 62-67, 73, 74, 76, and 78. Fourteen of these cards the only example graded GEM MINT, while another sixteen are one of two. MINT 9 (31 cards): #1, 4-8, 10, 11, 15, 19, 22, 26, 29, 30, 33, 38, 39, 47, 52, 58, 59, 61, 68-72, 75, 77, 79, and 80. Nine of these PSA MINT 9 cards are the highest-graded examples on record. The tremendous high grade of each and every one of these cards is entirely warranted, and all cards in the set have bold colors, crisp images, sharp corners, and perfect centering throughout. Any one of the thirty-one MINT 9s could easily grade GEM MINT on the right day. This is a unparalleled and unprecedented assembly of the finest "Spins & Needles" cards in existence! It is always tough to value scarce or low-population cards, and it is especially difficult to do so when an entire set is comprised almost entirely of these cards. SMR values do not exist for GEM MINT 10s, but MINT 9s list for $100. Aside from the challenge of adding up the value of the cards (due to there being so many PSA GEM MINT 10 cards in the set), it would be hard to overstate the extraordinary time, effort, and dedication that has been invested over the years into the assembly of this set, constantly upgrading until it was the very best! This is a superb complete set in astonishing condition, literally the finest in existence or ever assembled, of this classic nonsport issue, and one that would be a highlight in even the most advanced nonsport-card collection! Total: 80 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $8,400
