1962 Topps PSA-Graded Partial Set (460/598) - 7.70 GPA
Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $15,600
Presented is an extremely attractive, simply stunning ultra high-grade partial set of 1962 Topps baseball consisting of 460 different cards out of 598 in a complete set, highlighted by more than forty Hall of Famers, including Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, and Lou Brock (rookie card). The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. The flush-to-the-border brown wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear. This high-grade partial set has been assembled one card at a time by an extremely dedicated collector with an uncompromising commitment to condition and eye-appeal over a period of many years, actively seeking during the entire span of his collecting to complete a world-class set of 1962 Topps, his favorite issue. All 460 cards in the offered collection have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA and boast an impressive overall GPA of 7.70. This partial set consists of 364 NM-MT 8s, four NM+ 7.5s, fifty-one NM 7s, three EX-MT+ 6.5s, thirty-five EX-MT 6s, and three EX 5s.

This is a tremendous partial set in all respects! Bright and crisp throughout, this is a world-class collection of cards from this classic 1960s issue in uncompromising high grade. The few cards in slightly lesser grade can easily be replaced, if desired, to bring this partial set to 100% NM or better condition. The total SMR value is $17,360. It is a given that the SMR cannot begin to quantify the time and effort that is required to put together a grouping of this extraordinary quality, and this lot represents a remarkable opportunity to acquire a tremendous foundation for the assembly of an entirely graded, world-class, ultra high-grade complete set of this popular issue. Total: 460 cards. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+. SOLD FOR $15,600
