1961 Topps Complete Set (587) Including 29 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,200

11% Nr/Mt (including a few better), 32% Ex-Mt, 47% Ex, and 10% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Presented is a very sharp-looking complete set of one of the era's most popular issues, crisp and clean across the board. The 1961 Topps set includes five different Mickey Mantle cards, and was Topps' first venture into the popular League Leader subset.

Other Graded Cards: #533 (NM-MT 8), 540 (NM 7), and 544 (NM 7). 1961 will always be remembered as a "magic year" in baseball history, and a high quality, mid- to high-grade complete set of 1961 Topps as offered here will always be highly prized "time capsule." The SMR value for just twenty-five of the twenty-nine graded cards (excluding the four qualified cards and not including the additional 558 ungraded cards!) is $2,565. This is a beautiful set! Total: 587 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $4,200
