1969 Topps Complete Master Set Minus 1 (695/696) with All "White Letters" Including Mickey Mantle!
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,700
51% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt and 49% Vg-Ex to Ex (including a few lesser). Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of 1969 Topps consisting of 664 different cards PLUS thirty-one of the thirty-two variations required for a complete master set, including all twenty-three "white letters," one of which is Mickey Mantle. Missing only #567a (Pirates Rookies) to complete the master set. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Oakland A's HOFers Reggie Jackson and Rollie Fingers, plus the last card of Mickey Mantle, the 1969 Topps set has always been one of the most popular sets of the decade. This final card of "The Mick," who retired March 1, 1969, contains his complete statistical record on the reverse. Clemente, Mays, Aaron, Rose, and all the other great stars of the era are also included. Keys: #50 Clemente (Ex-Mt), 95 Bench (Ex), 100 Aaron (Vg-Ex+), 120 Rose (possible slight trim, otherwise Ex), 190 Mays (Ex), 260 Jackson RC (2/98 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 440 McCovey WL (Ex-Mt), 480 Seaver (Ex), 500 Mantle YL (Ex+), 500 Mantle WL (Vg-Ex), 533 Ryan (Ex), 597 Fingers RC (Ex-Mt), and 630 Bonds RC (Ex). Many of the lesser-graded cards within this set have been downgraded solely due to minor centering problems, which are common with the 1969 Topps set. This is a beautiful complete master set (less just one card) of one of the great 1960s Topps issues, loaded with Hall of Famers. Total: 695 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,700
