1962 Topps Complete Set (598 plus 6 variations)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,555.00

12% Nr/Mt, 81% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 7% Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. The flush-to-the-border brown wood-grain design of the 1962 Topps set makes this issue particularly susceptible to edge and corner wear, and makes the assembly of high-grade sets all the more difficult. This is a very attractive and (for this issue) fairly high grade complete set of this classic set, which includes all the great stars of the era. This particular set also includes six variations, for a total of 604 cards. Nineteen cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Maris (Vg-Ex+), 5 Koufax (Ex), 10 Clemente (Ex), 18 Manager's Dream (Ex+), 25 Banks (Ex), 30 Mathews (Ex), 45 B. Robinson (Ex+), 50 Musial (Ex), 53 AL HR LDRS (Ex), 70 Killebrew (Ex+), 100 Spahn (Vg), 137 Huggins/Ruth (PSA NM+ 7.5), 140 Gehrig/Ruth (PSA EX-MT+ 6.5), 143 Babe Ruth (PSA NM 7), 150 Kaline (Ex), 199 Perry RC (PSA NM 7), 200 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6), 288 Williams (Ex), 300 Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 310 Ford (Ex), 313 Maris Blast (Ex), 318 Mantle Switch Hitter (Ex), 320 Aaron (PSA EX-MT 6), 340 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 350 F. Robinson (Ex), 360 Berra (PSA EX-MT 6), 387 Brock RC (Ex), 394 Aaron AS (Ex-Mt), 395 Mays AS (Ex), 401 Maris/Cepeda (PSA EX-MT 6), 425 Yastrzemski (Ex), 471 Mantle AS (Vg-Ex+), 500 Snider (Ex-Mt), 530 Gibson (Vg-Ex), 544 McCovey (Ex), 545 Wilhelm (PSA NM 7), 575 Schoendienst (Ex), 592 Bouton RC (Ex), 594 Uecker RC (Ex), 596 Pepitone RC (Ex), and 598 Hickman RC (Ex). The additional graded cards are: NM-MT 8: #564. NM+ 7.5: #341. NM 7: #75, 99, 430 (MC), and 450. EX-MT 6: #290, 400, and 462. Also included are six variations: #129, 132, 139 Reniff/pitching, 147, 174, and 190. Affordable mid- to high-grade complete sets such as this are extremely popular and represent a tremendous collecting value. The total SMR value of just the nineteen graded cards (excluding the one qualified card and the 584 ungraded cards!) is $937. Total: 604 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
