1962 Topps Complete Set (598) Including 34 PSA- and SGC-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,600

11% Nr/Mt (including some better), 33% Ex-Mt, 45% Ex, and 11% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Presented is an extremely crisp and clean complete set of 1962 Topps baseball. The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue due to the flush-to-the-border wood-grain design, which is particularly susceptible to wear. Thirty-four cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (twenty-eight) and SGC (six). Keys: #1 Maris (NM 84), 5 Koufax (NM 84), 10 Clemente (NM 7), 18 Manager's Dream (NM 7), 25 Banks (NM+ 7.5), 30 Mathews (NM-MT 8 [PD]), 45 B. Robinson (Vg-Ex+), 50 Musial (NM 7), 53 AL HR Ldrs (Ex+), 70 Killebrew (Ex), 73 Fox (NM 7), 85 Hodges (NM 7), 100 Spahn (Ex+), 139 Babe Hits 60 (Ex), 140 Gehrig/Ruth (NM 84, green tint), 150 Kaline (Ex), 199 Perry RC (NM-MT 8), 200 Mantle (NM 7), 218 Torre RC (Ex-Mt), 243 Roberts (NM 7), 251 Yankees Team (Nr/Mt+), 288 Williams (Ex-Mt), 300 Mays (EX/NM 80), 310 Ford (NM 7), 312 Spahn Shows No-Hit (NM-MT 8), 313 Maris Blast (Ex+), 318 Mantle Switch Hitter (EX/NM 80), 320 Aaron (NM 7 [OC]), 340 Drysdale (Ex), 350 F. Robinson (Ex), 353 Mazeroski (NM 7), 360 Berra (NM 7), 387 Brock RC (NM 7), 391 Mazeroski AS (NM 7), 394 Aaron AS (Vg-Ex+), 395 Mays AS (Ex-Mt), 401 Maris/Cepeda (1/99 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 425 Yastrzemski (Ex+), 461 Hubbs RC (Ex), 471 Mantle AS (NM 7), 475 Ford AS (NM 7), 500 Snider (Ex-Mt), 505 Marichal (no bottom border, otherwise Ex), 530 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 544 McCovey (Ex+), 545 Wilhelm (Ex-Mt), 575 Schoendienst (Nr/Mt+), 592 Bouton RC (Ex-Mt+), 594 Uecker RC (Ex+), 596 Pepitone RC (NM-MT 8), and 598 Hickman RC (Ex). Other Graded Cards (all PSA unless noted): #379 (NM-MT 8), 445 (NM 7), 546 (NM 7), 550 (SGC NM/MT 88), 569 (NM 7), 589 (NM 7), 593 (EX-MT 6), 595 (NM-MT 8), and 597 (MINT 9 [OC]). This is an extremely impressive 1962 Topps set, far superior to the average set of this very condition-sensitive issue. The total SMR value in the assigned grades for just the thirty-four graded cards (not including the 564 ungraded cards!) is $3,490. Total: 598 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $6,600
