1960 Topps Complete Set (572) with 23 PSA-Graded Cards!
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,600
Presented is an extremely attractive mid- to high-grade complete set of 1960 Topps baseball. 10% grade Nr/Mt or better, 70% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, and 20% range from Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Many of the cards graded Vg-Ex or Ex are downgraded due to light touches of wear at the corners or due to centering, which is often a problem with this issue. Of the 572 cards in the set, twenty-three have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA, including several of the key cards (Mantle, Clemente, McCovey and Yastrzemski RC, and others).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.

Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a 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, includes all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572). The SMR value for just the twenty-three graded cards (not including the 549 ungraded cards!) is $2,139. Total: 572 cards.
Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,600
