1963 Topps Complete Set (576) with 63 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,800

11% Nr/Mt or better and 89% Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex) with a few Vg. This is an extremely attractive 1963 Topps set with many notable highlights (including #537 Rose rookie graded PSA NM 7, #540 Clemente graded PSA NM-MT 8, etc.). Also included are six variations (#29, 54, 102, 431, 454, and 509), which makes this a near-complete master set missing only variations for #341 and 388 for completion. The flush-to-the-border design of this issue makes the cards very susceptible to corner and edge wear. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Pete Rose and Willie Stargell, 1963 Topps also includes many additional key star cards in the difficult high-number series, including Roberto Clemente and Duke Snider. Of the 576 cards in the set, sixty-three cards (representing 11% of the set) have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for three SGC and one GAI), including many of the key cards (Rose, Mantle, and Clemente, among others). Keys: #1 NL Batting Ldrs (Ex), 2 AL Batting Ldrs (Ex), 3 NL HR Ldrs (Ex+), 18 Buc Blasters (Ex), 25 Kaline (PSA NM 7), 68 Friendly Foes (Ex), 108 Wilhelm (PSA NM 7), 115 Yastrzemski (PSA NM 7), 120 Maris (Ex-Mt), 138 Mays/Musial (Vg-Ex+), 169 Perry RC (Ex), 173 Bombers' Best with Mantle (GAI NM 7), 200 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6), 205 Aparicio (Ex), 210 Koufax (Ex+), 228 Oliva RC (Vg-Ex+), 242 Banks/Aaron (Ex-Mt), 245 Hodges (Ex), 250 Musial (Ex-Mt), 275 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 300 Mays (PSA NM-MT 8 [OC]), 320 Spahn (Ex+), 323 Mazeroski (Ex-Mt+), 340 Berra (Vg-Ex+), 345 B. Robinson (SGC NM 84), 360 Drysdale (Vg-Ex+), 380 Banks (Ex-Mt+), 390 Aaron (Vg+), 400 F. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 412 Dodgers' Big Three with Koufax (Vg-Ex), 415 Gibson (Vg-Ex+), 440 Marichal (Ex-Mt), 446 Ford (Ex-Mt), 472 Brock (Nr/Mt), 490 McCovey (Ex+), 500 Killebrew SP (PSA NM 7), 520 Cepeda (Vg+), 525 Fox (Ex-Mt), 537 Rose RC (PSA NM 7), 540 Clemente (PSA NM-MT 8), 550 Snider (PSA NM 7), and 553 Stargell RC (PSA NM 7). Other Graded Cards: Nine NM-MT 8: #336, 375, 391, 394, 480 (ST), 541, 542, 545, and 560. Twenty-nine NM 7: #20, 54a, 56, 109, 113, 117, 126 (SGC NM 84), 178, 221, 239, 301, 309, 325, 335, 339, 347, 352, 374, 378, 388, 405, 428, 431, 465 (SGC NM 84), 479, 488, 503, 517, and 530. One EX-MT+ 6.5: #431. Eleven EX-MT 6: #4, 29, 34, 52, 54b, 102, 107, 434, 455, 533, and 549. One EX 5: #364. This is a very strong, extremely attractive complete set of one of the 1960s most popular issues. Many of the cards graded Vg-Ex or Ex are downgraded solely due to light touches of wear at the corners or due to centering issues, which are so common for this set. The SMR value for just sixty-one of the graded cards (not including the two qualified cards and not including the additional 513 ungraded cards!) is $3,280. Total: 582 cards (complete set of 576 plus 6 variations). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++. SOLD FOR $4,800
