1964 Topps Giants Near-Complete Autographed Set (59 of 60)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,480.00
One of the most highly prized signed sets of the 1960s. Beautifully signed near-complete set includes fifty-nine of the sixty cards in the set (missing only Clemente) with signatures grading "9/10" overall. 27 of the cards have significant added notations and dates (MVP, ROY, Cy Young, HR totals, etc.) beneath their signatures: 45% are signed in ballpoint pen and 55% are signed in blue Sharpie marker. Though Clemente is missing, this card is possible to find autographed. The key rarity in signed form for this set is actually #22 Dick Farrell, who is included. Farrell is nearly impossible to find signed in 1964 Topps Giants. After his Major League career ended in 1969 he moved to England, and was virtually inaccessible to collectors seeking his autograph from this time until he died in England in 1977. Keys: #4 Koufax, 7 Ford, 12 Kaline, 13 Fox, 21 Howard, 22 D. Farrell, 25 Mantle, 29 F. Robinson, 31 Spahn, 37 Marichal, 38 Killebrew, 39 Aparicio, 41 Gibson, 48 Yastrzemski, 49 Aaron, 50 B. Robinson, 51 Mays (ch), 56 Pinson, and 57 K. Boyer. This is a gorgeous set in overall Near Mint condition. Total 59 cards. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,480.00
