Robinson AS (Vg-Ex), 586 Ford AS (ex-Mt), and 589 Spahn AS (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). The balance of the cards which have not been encapsulated range from Ex to Nr/Mt, averaging Ex-Mt overall. It is expensive to encapsulate a complete set with hundreds of cards, but the collector who put this set together did make the investment of grading 110 cards, which for a set that is not entirely graded is an extremely substantial selection. Bright and crisp complete set of this classic 1960s issue. Total 587 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
