1960 Topps Complete Set (572) Plus 1960 Fleer Baseball Greats Set (79)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,962.50
Very attractive complete set of 1960 Topps: 90% grade Ex to Ex-Mt (approximately 5% are better) and 10% Vg-Ex with a few of these slightly lesser mostly due to centering. 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. We have selected eight cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: #1 Wynn (Ex), 7 Master & Mentor (Ex), 10 Banks (Vg), 28 B. Robinson (Ex), 35 Ford (Ex+), 50 Kaline (Ex), 73 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 148 Yastrzemski RC (SGC EX+ 70), 160 Mantle/Boyer (SGC NM 84), 200 Mays (SGC EX/NM 80), 210 Killebrew (Ex+), 250 Musial (SGC NM 84), 264 Roberts (Nr/Mt), 300 Aaron (Vg), 305 Ashburn (Ex+), 316 McCovey RC (SGC NM 84), 326 Clemente (Ex), 332 Yankees Team (marked reverse, otherwise Ex-Mt), 343 Koufax (SGC EX/NM 80), 350 Mantle (SGC EX 60), 377 Maris (Ex-Mt), 420 Mathews (Ex), 445 Spahn (Ex), 475 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 480 Berra (Ex), 490 Robinson (Ex), 493 Snider (Ex, miscut), 560 Banks AS (Vg-Ex), 563 Mantle AS (SGC VG/EX 50), 564 Mays AS (Ex-Mt), 565 Maris AS (Ex-Mt), 566 Aaron AS (Ex). Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a well-matched set across the board, 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. As noted in the lot title, also included with the 1960 Topps set is a complete set of 1960 Fleer (79 cards) featuring old-timers. This is a very substantial and interesting 1960 set in its own right: 60% grade Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, and 40% grade Ex to Ex-Mt. Total: 651 cards (1960 Topps complete set of 572 plus 1960 Fleer complete set of 79). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
