Condition is 10% Nr/Mt-Mt or higher, 68% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 17% Ex, and 5% Vg-Ex. Twenty-eight cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #20 B. Robinson (Ex), 45 Seaver (Nr/Mt), 50 Mays (NM 7), 80 Carew (Nr/Mt), 100 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 110 Aaron (NM-MT 8), 145 Drysdale (Ex), 150 Clemente (NM/MT 8), 177 Ryan RC (EX-MT 6), 205 Marichal (MINT 9), 220 Killebrew (MINT 9), 230 Rose (Ex-Mt), 240 Kaline (Nr/Mt-Mt), 247 Bench RC (Nr/Mt), 250 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt), 280 Mantle (NM+ 7.5), 330 Maris (Ex+), 355 Banks (MINT 9), 361 Killebrew AS (MINT 9), 364 Morgan AS (GEM MT 10), 372 Brock AS (MINT 9), 408 Carlton (Nr/Mt), 480 Manager's Dream (Nr/Mt), 490 Superstars (NM-MT 8), 500 F.

Other Graded Cards: Eight GEM MT 10: 69, 248, 288, 299, 393, 422, 467, and 584. Five MINT 9: 213, 263, 368, 454, and 582. Spectacularly clean and crisp high-grade set with the usual number of mostly minor centering problems or touches of wear at the corners, which accounts for the downgrades on almost all the cards graded Ex or lesser. The SMR value for just nineteen of the graded cards (not including the nine GEM MT 10s, for which there is no SMR value, and also not including the 570 ungraded cards!) is $2,287. Total: 598 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+. SOLD FOR $4,800
