1962 Topps Complete Set (598)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $9,280.00

Grades 55% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 35% Ex-Mt, 10% Ex. This is an extraordinary high-grade set. The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. The flush-to-the-border brown wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear. The offered set is in exceptionally high grade for this set, with an occasional off-center card and an occasional gum stain (both typical for this issue). This particular set also includes ten significant variations (both variations for #22, 129, 132, 134, 147, 174, 176 and 190; and all three variations for #139), for a total of 608 cards. A selection of nine cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (2 cards), SGC (1 card) or GAI (6 cards). Keys: 1 Maris (70/30 T/B, otherwise Ex), 5 Koufax (GAI NM+ 7.5), 10 Clemente (Ex-Mt), 18 Mantle/Mays (20/80 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 25 Banks (10/90 T/B, o/w Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 45 Robinson (10/90 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 50 Musial (70/30 L/R, o/w Ex-Mt), 53 Maris/Mantle LL (30/70 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 60 Koufax/Drysdale LL (30/70 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 70 Killebrew (80/20 L/R and 1/99 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 100 Spahn (80/20 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 129a Walls - pinstriped jersey (GAI NM-MT+ 8.5), 139a Reniff - pitching (30/70 L/R, o/w Ex-Mt), 140 Ruth/Gehrig (Ex-Mt), 147a Kunkel - pitching (PSA NM 7), 150 Kaline (Nr/Mt-Mt), 167 McCarver (PSA NM 7), 199 Perry (slight miscut, o/w Nr/Mt), 200 Mantle (GAI NM-MT 8), 213 Ashburn (95/5 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 218 Torre (Ex-Mt), 251 Yankees (Nr/Mt), 288 Williams (30/70 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 300 Mays (30/70 L/R, o/w Ex), 310 Ford (25/75 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 313 Maris IA (Ex-Mt), 317 Musial IA (SGC NM/MT 88), 318 Mantle IA (5/95 L/R, o/w Ex-Mt), 320 Aaron (5/95 L/R, o/w Ex-Mt), 340 Drysdale (20/80 T/B, o/w Ex), 350 Robinson (Ex-Mt), 360 Berra (Nr/Mt), 387 Brock (Nr/Mt), 394 Aaron AS (Ex-Mt), 395 Mays AS (GAI NM-MT+ 8.5), 401 Maris/Cepeda (Ex), 425 Yastrzemski (GAI NM-MT+ 8.5), 430 Kubek (GAI MINT 9), 461 Hubbs (70/30 T/B, o/w Nr/Mt), 471 Mantle AS (Vg-Ex/Ex), 500 Snider (Nr/Mt), 505 Marichal (Ex-Mt), 530 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 544 McCovey SP (Nr/Mt), 545 Wilhelm SP (20/80 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 575 Schoendienst SP (Ex-Mt), 591 McDowell (Ex-Mt), 592 Bouton (5/95 L/R, o/w Nr/Mt), 594 Uecker (Nr/Mt), 596 Pepitone (Ex-Mt), and 598 Hickman (paper tear on back, o/w Nr/Mt).
