1967 to 1969 Topps Complete Sets (3)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,818.75

Collection of three complete Topps sets, one from each of the following years: 1967, 1968, and 1969. These are beautiful sets, with 56%, 70%, and 72% of the cards in each set, respectively, ranging from Ex to Ex-Mt condition, yet not so high grade that they are valued at the fortune that similarly attractive but technically higher grade sets would sell for. Sets in this grade represent a particularly outstanding value. These three sets together also represent a time capsule of an entire era. 1) 1967 Topps (609 cards): Keys: #5 Ford (Vg), 30 Kaline (Vg), 45 Maris (Vg-Ex), 55 Drysdale (Ex), 100 Robinson (Ex), 146 Carlton (Vg), 150 Mantle (Vg), 200 Mays (Vg), 210 Gibson (Vg-Ex), 215 Banks (80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 250 Aaron (Vg-Ex), 285 Brock (Vg), 355 Yastrzemski (Vg), 400 Clemente (Vg-Ex), 423 Mays/McCovey (Ex), 430 Rose (Vg-Ex), 475 Palmer (Ex), 476 Perez (Vg), 480 McCovey (Ex), 500 Marichal (Vg), 536 Niekro RC (Vg-Ex), 540 Cash (Vg-Ex), 558 Belanger RC (Ex), 560 Bunning (Ex-Mt), 569 Carew RC (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 570 Wills (Ex), 580 Colavito (Vg), 581 Seaver RC (Vg), 600 Robinson (Vg), 604 Red Sox (Ex), 605 Shannon (Vg), 607 Stanley (Vg-Ex), and 609 John (Vg-Ex). The balance of the cards grade 56% Ex to Ex-Mt, 42% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 2% lesser (Gd). 2) 1968 Topps (598 cards): Keys: #45 Seaver (Vg-Ex/Ex), 50 Mays (Ex), 80 Carew (Ex), 110 Aaron (90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 150 Clemente (Ex), 177 Ryan RC (Ex), 230 Rose (Vg-Ex), 247 Bench RC (Ex), 280 Mantle (Gd), 330 Maris (70/30 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 480 Manager's Dream (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 490 Killebrew/Mays/Mantle (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex), 528 Tigers (Ex), and 575 Palmer (Vg). The balance of the cards grade 70% Ex to Ex-Mt, 28% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 2% lesser (Gd). 3) 1969 Topps (664 cards): Keys: #50 Clemente (Ex-Mt), 95 Bench (Vg-Ex), 100 Aaron (Ex), 120 Rose (Vg-Ex), 190 Mays (Vg-Ex), 260 Jackson RC (Vg), 480 Seaver (Ex), 500 Mantle (Vg-Ex), 533 Ryan (Vg-Ex), 573 Palmer (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 597 Fingers RC (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), and 630 Bonds (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt). The balance of the set grades 72% Ex to Ex-Mt, 26% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 2% lesser (Gd). Very attractive and clean mid-grade 1967 to 1969 Topps complete set run. Total 1,871 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
