1960 Topps Complete Set (572)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,233
10% Nr/Mt, 75% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, 15% Vg to Vg-Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). This is a strong set with 85% grading Ex to Nr/Mt, and with crisp cards that at a glance look even better than suggested by the set's technically accurate condition composite. The rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey highlight the 1960 Topps issue, which was Topps’ last horizontal issue. Many of the biggest stars in the set, including Mantle, Mays, and Aaron, appear in the set more than once due to the All-Star card series. Mantle actually has three cards in this set, as he also appears on the #160 "Rival All-Stars" card with Ken Boyer. Four cards from the set have been graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Wynn (Vg-Ex), 10 Banks (Ex-Mt), 18 Dodgers Team (Vg), 28 B. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 35 Ford (Ex), 50 Kaline (Ex), 73 Gibson (Ex), 148 Yastrzemski RC (PSA EX-MT 6), 160 Mantle/Boyer (Vg), 200 Mays (80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 210 Killebrew (Nr/Mt), 250 Musial (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 300 Aaron (PSA GOOD 2), 316 McCovey RC (PSA EX-MT 6), 326 Clemente (paper loss on back, otherwise Nr/Mt), 332 Yankees Team (Vg), 343 Koufax (Vg), 350 Mantle (no bottom border, otherwise Ex), 377 Maris (Vg-Ex), 420 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 445 Spahn (Ex), 475 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 480 Berra (Vg-Ex), 490 Robinson (Ex), 493 Snider (25/75 L/R and 80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 554 McCovey AS (Vg-Ex), 563 Mantle AS (PSA EX 5), 564 Mays AS (Vg-Ex), 565 Maris AS (miscut on back, otherwise Ex), and 566 Aaron AS (Ex). Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a strong mid- to high-grade set, and in addition to all the special cards and scarce high-numbers (#507-572), it is loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s. Total: 572 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
