Ultra High-Grade 1969 Topps Football Complete Set (263)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,819

Extraordinary ultra high-grade complete set of 1969 Topps Football cards from the Charlie Conlon Collection. We don't know where Charlie got this set, but it must have been carefully assembled in the year of issue and has remained untouched ever since. These cards look like they were just printed! The colored flush-to-the-border design of the 1969 Topps Football low-number series makes this set particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Four graded MINT 96, one graded NM/MT+ 92, and two graded NM/MT 88. This classic set features all the stars of the era, including rookie cards of Hall of Famer Larry Csonka and Brian Piccolo, and stars such as Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Bart Starr, and Fran Tarkenton. Keys: #8 (SGC NM/MT 88), 25 Unitas (Nr/Mt), 26 Piccolo RC (Nr/Mt), 33 (SGC NM/MT+ 92), 51 Sayers (Nr/Mt), 75 Meredith (Nr/Mt), 100 Namath (Ex), 120 Csonka RC (Nr/Mt), 139 Butkus (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 144 (SGC NM/MT 88), 150 Tarkenton (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 155 (SGC MINT 96), 161 Griese (SGC MINT 96), 201 Biletnikoff (SGC MINT 96), 215 Starr (SGC MINT 96), and 232 Blanda (Ex-Mt). The balance of the set grades: 90% range from Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (with a few better), 10% grade Ex-Mt. This is an incredible set, without question one of the finest 1969 Topps Football sets we have ever seen. Total 263 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,819
