1962 Topps Complete Set (598)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $7,638
Grades 70% Nr/Mt or better (includes many Nr/Mt-Mt), 25% Ex-Mt, 5% Ex. This is an extraordinary high-grade set, one of the very best 1962 Topps baseball sets we have ever seen or offered. The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue.The flush-to-the-border wood grain design of 1962 Topps makes cards from this set particularly susceptible to 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 six significant variations (all three variations for #139; and both variations for #134, 147, 174, and 176), for a total of 604 cards. We have selected ten HOFer and superstar cards to be graded by PSA (all submitted by REA).
