1960 Topps Complete Set (572) with 71 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $5,925.00

Presented is an extremely crisp, high-grade complete set of 1960 Topps baseball. 36% Nr/Mt or better (including 8% graded Nr/Mt-Mt to Mint), 42% Ex-Mt, and 22% Ex (with approximately a dozen lesser). Of the 572 cards in the set, seventy-one cards (12%) have been professionally graded and encapsulated (all PSA except for one SGC), including most of the key cards (Mantle, Mays, Koufax, Yastrzemski RC, and more). Included are twelve MINT 9s, thirty-three NM-MT 8s (one qualified), twenty-four NM 7s, and two EX-MT 6s. 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. The PSA grades are as follows: Twelve MINT 9: #137, 178, 184, 198, 208 White Sox team, 231, 243, 249, 272, 329, 339, and 424. Thirty-three NM-MT 8: #7 Mays/Rigney, 45, 68, 75, 84, 87, 120, 141, 167, 181, 183, 192, 210 Killebrew, 248, 253, 273, 277, 351, 371, 372, 381 Braves team, 392, 432, 474, 475 Drysdale, 484 Pirates team, 490 F. Robinson, 506, 521, 537 Red Sox team, 560 Banks AS, 561 Kaline AS, and 572 (OC). Twenty-four NM 7: #28 B. Robinson, 35 Ford, 100 Fox, 114, 148 Yastrzemski RC, 200 Mays, 250 Musial, 343 Koufax, 344, 345, 350 Mantle, 377 Maris, 384, 394, 400 Colavito, 416, 417, 428, 445 Spahn, 480 Berra, 503, 558 Mathews AS, 564 Mays AS, and 565 Maris AS. Two EX-MT 6: #160 Mantle/Boyer and 295 Hodges (SGC EX/NM 80). Ungraded Keys: #1 Wynn (Ex), 10 Banks (Ex-Mt), 18 Dodgers team (Ex-Mt), 50 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 55 Mazeroski (Ex-Mt), 73 Gibson (Ex+), 115 Wilhelm/Face (Ex+), 136 Kaat RC (Ex-Mt), 230 Mound Magicians (Ex-Mt), 264 Roberts (Nr/Mt), 300 Aaron (Ex+), 305 Ashburn (Vg-Ex), 316 McCovey RC (Ex), 326 Clemente (Ex+), 332 Yankees team (Gd), 352 Cincy Clouters (Ex), 353 Larsen (Ex), 395 Wilhelm (Nr/Mt), 420 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 450 Cepeda (Ex-Mt), 493 Snider (Ex+), 502 Bunning (Ex), 554 McCovey AS (Nr/Mt), 555 Fox AS (Ex-Mt), 559 Aparicio AS (EX+), 566 Aaron AS (Ex+), 563 Mantle AS (Ex+), and 570 Drysdale AS (Ex-Mt). The condition of the 502 cards which have not been encapsulated is also very strong, ranging from Ex to Nr/Mt, averaging Ex-Mt overall, with several downgraded due to centering issues common to this set. It is expensive to encapsulate a complete set with hundreds of cards, but this set comes with a substantial selection of seventy cards (including most keys) already professionally graded. Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a beautiful high-grade set, very crisp, clean, and attractive across the board, and, in addition to being loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s, also includes all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572). The SMR value for just the seventy graded cards (not including the one qualified card and the 501 ungraded cards) is $4,144. Total: 572 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000++. SOLD FOR $5,925.00
