1960 Topps Complete Set (572)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,900
Presented is a very attractive complete set, highlighted by particularly impressive examples of several key cards. The rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey highlight the 1960 Topps set, which was Topps’ last horizontal issue. Many of the biggest stars in the set, including Mantle, Mays, and Aaron, appear in the set more than once due to the All-Star card series. Mantle actually has three cards in this set, as he also appears on the #160 "Rival All-Stars" card with Ken Boyer. Condition of this set is 24% Ex-Mt (includes 5% Nr/Mt), 65% Ex, and 11% Vg-Ex. All cards are bright and clean, with centering issues and light corner wear responsible for almost all of the cards graded Ex or lower. Five cards are professionally graded and encapsulated (four PSA and one BVG). Keys: #1 Wynn (Ex-Mt), 10 Banks (Ex+), 28 B. Robinson (Ex+), 35 Ford (Ex+), 50 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 73 Gibson (Ex+), 148 Yastrzemski RC (NM 7), 160 Mantle/Boyer (Nr/Mt), 200 Mays (98/2 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 210 Killebrew (Ex-Mt), 250 Musial (Ex), 300 Aaron (Ex), 316 McCovey RC (BVG NM 7), 326 Clemente (Ex+), 332 Yankees Team (Ex-Mt), 343 Koufax (Ex+), 350 Mantle (NM 7), 377 Maris (NM 7), 420 Mathews (Ex+), 445 Spahn (Ex), 475 Drysdale (Ex), 480 Berra (Ex+), 490 Robinson (Ex-Mt), 493 Snider (Vg-Ex+), 554 McCovey AS (Ex), 563 Mantle AS (NM+ 7.5), 564 Mays AS (Ex-Mt), 565 Maris AS (Vg-Ex+), and 566 Aaron AS (Vg-Ex+). Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is an exceptionally attractive complete set which, in addition to all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572), is loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s. The SMR value for just the five graded cards (factoring in the one half-grade at the lower whole-grade level and not including the 567 ungraded cards!) is $1,190. Total: 572 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,900
