1960 Topps Near-Complete Set (564/572) Including 94 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,700

22% Nr/Mt or better, 62% Ex to Ex-Mt, 11% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 5% lesser. Presented is an attractive near-complete set of 1960 Topps baseball, missing only eight cards for completion. The rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey highlight the 1960 Topps set, which was Topps’ last horizontal issue. Many of the biggest stars in the set, including Mantle, Mays, and Aaron, appear in the set more than once due to the All-Star card series. Mantle actually has three cards in this set, as he also appears on the #160 "Rival All-Stars" card with Ken Boyer. Ninety-four cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. PSA Grading Composite: MINT 9 (1 card): #413 Athletics (OC). NM-MT 8 (29 cards): #26, 37 (PD), 40, 50 Kaline (HOF), 64, 74, 119, 121, 122, 130, 141, 149, 152, 158, 159, 161, 166, 167, 172 (PD), 184, 195, 197, 316 McCovey RC (HOF, OC), 363 (PD), 400 (MC), 431, 432, 437, and 471.

Missing #72, 109, 408, 429, 509, 513, 529, and 534 for completion. Complete or near-complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era.

Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,700
