1962 Topps Near-Complete Set (591/598) Plus 12 Rare Variations

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,581

95% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt), 5% slightly lesser. This is a tremendous, uncommonly high-grade near-complete set of 1962 Topps. Missing only seven cards for completion (#73 Fox, 210, 225, 227, 310 Ford, 380, 430). The 1962 Topps set is notorious for condition problems. The flush-to-the-border brown wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear. This set has a crisp, pack-fresh appearance, with an occasional off-center card and an occasional gum stain (both typical for this issue). It has been stored away by a longtime collector, undisturbed for the past 30 years. This particular set also includes twelve significant variations (#22, 129, 134, 147, 174, 176, 190, 192, 458, 462; and two variations for #139), for a total of 603 cards. We have selected eleven HOFer and superstar cards to be graded by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: #1 Maris (SGC EX 60), 5 Koufax (SGC EX 60), 10 Clemente (SGC EX 60), 18 Mantle/Mays (SGC NM 84), 25 Banks (Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (10/90 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 45 Robinson (Ex), 50 Musial (SGC NM/MT 88), 53 Maris/Mantle LL (Nr/Mt), 100 Spahn (Ex), 139 Reniff pitching (90/10 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 140 Ruth/Gehrig (Nr/Mt), 150 Kaline (Nr/Mt-Mt), 199 Perry (SGC NM/MT 88), 200 Mantle (autographed in blue ink grades "10," card is Ex), 218 Torre (Ex), 251 Yankees (Nr/Mt-Mt), 300 Mays (SGC EX/NM 80), 313 Maris IA (Ex-Mt), 318 Mantle IA (Nr/Mt), 320 Aaron (SGC NM 84), 340 Drysdale (SGC NM/MT 88), 350 Robinson (Ex), 360 Berra (Ex-Mt), 387 Brock (Ex), 394 Aaron AS (10/90 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 395 Mays AS (Ex-Mt), 401 Maris/Cepeda (Nr/Mt), 425 Yastrzemski (Nr/Mt), 471 Mantle AS (SGC NM 84), 500 Snider (SGC NM 84), 530 Gibson SP (Ex-Mt), 544 McCovey SP (Ex-Mt), 545 Wilhelm SP (Ex), 575 Schoendienst SP (Nr/Mt), 591 McDowell (Ex-Mt), 592 Bouton (Ex-Mt), 594 Uecker (Nr/Mt), 596 Pepitone (Nr/Mt), and 598 Hickman (Nr/Mt). This is an extremely sharp 1962 Topps set, far superior to the average set offered of this very condition-sensitive issue. This is a beautiful high-grade set that looks like it was assembled directly from packs in the year of issue. Total 603 cards (near-set of 591 plus 12 variations). LOA from James Spence/JSA (for the one autographed card). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $5,581
