1960 to 1969 Topps Hockey Complete Sets (10 sets, 1,003 cards)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $32,313

Outstanding 1960 through 1969 Topps Hockey complete set run (missing only the 1966 Topps set, which is offered as a separate lot, and two cards in the 1964-1965 set, which are not present). Beautiful, mostly very high-grade complete sets of these Topps hockey classics. From a very old-time collection, these sets have been stored away in a closet for decades, possibly since their year of issue. Though they do not have as many cards as the Topps baseball sets of the era, and are not as valuable, these hockey sets are actually rarer than their baseball counterparts. Each set is loaded with all the great stars and Hall of Famers of the era. We have selected eleven key cards to be graded by PSA. 1) 1960-1961 complete set (66): 78% range from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex-Mt), 22% Vg to Vg-Ex. Many of the cards have wax stains. Keys: #1 Patrick (Vg), 7 Shack (EX), 14 Mikita RC (EX-MT 6), 25 Hall (Ex-Mt), 58 Hull (EX 5). 2) 1961-1962 near-complete set (65 of 66): Missing only #2 Green for completion. 92% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt), 8% Vg-Ex to Ex.
