1960 Topps Complete Set (572) Including 42 PSA- and SGC-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $5,400

Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of 1960 Topps baseball, with many notable high-grade high-value highlights. Condition is 12% Nr/Mt or better, 18% Ex-Mt, 50% Ex, 12% Vg-Ex, and 8% lesser. Of the 572 cards in the set, forty-two have been professionally graded and encapsulated (seventeen PSA and twenty-five SGC), including several of the key cards. The rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey highlight the 1960 Topps issue, 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. Keys: #1 Wynn (Vg-Ex), 7 Mays/Rigney (PSA NM 7), 10 Banks (Ex), 28 B.

Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a particularly beautiful set, very crisp, clean, and attractive across the board, and, in addition to being loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s, this set naturally also includes all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572). The SMR value for just forty-one of the graded cards (not including the qualified Yastrzemski RC and also not including the 530 ungraded cards!) is $5,433. Total: 572 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000++. SOLD FOR $5,400
