High-Grade 1969 Topps Near-Complete Set (661/664)
Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $9,600
60% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 34% Ex-Mt, and 6% Ex. Crisp, clean, very sharp-looking near-complete set of 1969 Topps, highlighted by the rookie cards of Oakland A's HOFers Reggie Jackson and Rollie Fingers, plus the last card of Mickey Mantle. 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. Missing only three cards for completion: #106, 589, and 650 Williams. This is a very sharp set consigned from an old-time collection! It was very likely assembled directly from packs in the year of issue and carefully stored for decades! We have selected five cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #20 Banks (slight miscut, otherwise Nr/Mt), 50 Clemente (Ex-Mt+), 95 Bench (Ex+), 100 Aaron (Ex), 120 Rose (NM/MT 88), 130 Yastrzemski (Nr/Mt), 190 Mays (NM/MT+ 92), 200 Gibson (Ex-Mt+), 216 Sutton (Nr/Mt+), 250 F. Robinson (Nr/Mt), 255 Carlton (Ex-Mt), 260 Jackson RC (NM 84), 375 Killebrew (Ex-Mt+), 410 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 440 McCovey (Nr/Mt), 480 Seaver (Nr/Mt), 500 Mantle (NM/MT 88), 510 Carew (Nr/Mt), 533 Ryan (NM/MT 88), 550 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt+), 573 Palmer (Ex-Mt), 597 Fingers RC (Ex+), and 630 Bonds RC (Ex-Mt). Many of the lesser-graded cards within this set have a higher-grade appearance and have been downgraded solely due to minor centering problems, which are common with the 1969 Topps set. This is a beautiful high-grade near-complete set of one of the great 1960s Topps issues, loaded with Hall of Famers. The equivalent SMR value for just the five graded cards (factoring in the one half-grade at the lower whole-grade level and not including the 656 ungraded cards!) is $1,655. Total: 661 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $9,600
