1961 Topps Near-Complete Set (529 of 587)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,997.50

50% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 25% Ex, 23% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 2% slightly lesser grades. Twelve cards have been graded by PSA including #300 Mantle PSA NM 7 and #475 Mantle MVP PSA NM 7. This is a very sharp-looking near-complete set (529 of 587 cards) of one of the era's most popular issues. The 1961 Topps set includes five different Mickey Mantle cards, and was Topps' first venture into the popular League Leader subset. The Most Valuable Player subset, an extremely difficult high number run, and the rookie cards of Juan Marichal and Billy Williams also highlight this set. Eleven cards have been graded NM 7 by PSA (#123, 128, 182, 297, 300 Mantle, 308, 389, 436, 443 Snider, 475 Mantle MVP, and 555). One card has been graded by SGC: 415 Aaron (SGC NM+ 86). Additional Keys: #2 Maris (20/80 L/R and 30/70 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 10 B. Robinson (Vg), 41 Mays/Clemente LL (Ex), 44 HR LDRS (10/90 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 120 Mathews (90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 141 B. Williams (RC, Ex), 150 Mays (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex), 160 Ford (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 200 Spahn (Ex), 207 Koufax/Podres (Ex), 211 Gibson (70/30 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex), 228 Yankees Team (Ex), 260 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 290 Musial (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 300 Mantle (PSA NM 7), 344 Koufax (Ex-Mt), 350 Banks (Ex), 360 F. Robinson (Ex), 388 Clemente (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 405 Gehrig Benched (Ex), 417 Marichal (RC, 70/30 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 429 Kaline (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex), 443 Snider (PSA NM 7), 472 Berra MVP (Ex), 475 Mantle MVP (PSA NM 7 [OC]), 478 Maris MVP (Vg), 482 Mays MVP (Ex), 484 Aaron MVP (Ex-Mt), 485 Banks MVP (70/30 T/B, otherwise Vg-Ex), 517 McCovey (Vg), 554 Pirates (Ex-Mt), 577 Aaron AS (Ex), 581 F. Robinson AS (Ex), and 589 Spahn AS (Ex). Missing only the following cards for completion: #30 Fox, 35 Santo, 80 Killebrew, 140, 265, 287 Yaz, 296, 307 Mantle WS, 330 Colavito, 333, 401 Ruth HR, 402, 406 Mantle HR, 425 Berra, 428, 430 Mazeroski, 441, 460 Hodges, 480 Campy MVP, 520, 528, 530, 533, 536, 538, 540-542, 544, 545 Wilhelm, 547-549, 551-553, 556, 557, 560, 561, 563, 565-567, 569-576, 578-580, 584, 585, and 586 Ford. Aside from a few centering problems here and there, this partial set has a Near Mint appearance throughout, and represents the foundation (and the lion's share of work) in the assembly of an exceptionally attractive complete set of this classic 1960s Topps issue. Total 529 of 587 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
