1967 Topps Complete Set (609)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,443.75
Crisp, clean, complete set of 1967 Topps baseball. The 1967 Topps set has always been extremely popular, featuring scores of stars and Hall of Famers from what is now fondly remembered as the Golden Age for many current collectors. This set includes legends such as Mantle, Mays, Aaron, and Clemente, from an era before big money ruled the game, and when the summer All-Star contests were comprised almost exclusively of first-rate Hall of Famers. This particular set is all the more noteworthy as it was awarded as a prize to a lucky winner as part of Topps' "40th Anniversary" celebration in 1991. A congratulatory letter from Topps accompanies this set. Condition is 21% Nr/Mt, 73% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 6% lesser. The set presents with exceptional color, bright white borders, bold green reverses, and sharp corners throughout with only scattered centering issues responsible for almost all of the technical downgrades. We have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #5 Ford (no bottom border, otherwise Ex), 30 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 45 Maris (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 55 Drysdale (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 100 F. Robinson (Ex+), 103 Checklist - Mantle (Ex, miscut back), 140 Stargell (95/5 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 146 Carlton (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 150 Mantle (SGC EX/NM+ 82), 166 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 200 Mays (SGC NM 84), 210 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 215 Banks (Ex-Mt), 242 Aaron/Clemente LL (Nr/Mt+), 250 Aaron (SGC NM/MT 88), 285 Brock (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 355 Yastrzemski (no right border, otherwise Nr/Mt), 400 Clemente (SGC EX/NM 80), 423 Fence Busters (Ex), 430 Rose (SGC NM 84), 460 Killebrew (Ex-Mt+), 475 Palmer (Ex+), 476 Perez (90/10 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 480 McCovey (Ex-Mt), 500 Marichal (Ex-Mt), 540 Cash (Ex-Mt), 560 Bunning (90/10 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 569 Carew RC (Ex+), 570 Wills (miscut left border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 580 Colavito (miscut T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 581 Seaver RC (SGC NM+ 86), 600 B. Robinson (Ex), 604 Red Sox Team (Vg-Ex+), 605 Shannon (Ex+), 607 Stanley (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), and 609 John (Ex). This is a beautiful set, appearing almost uniformly pack-fresh, with only centering problems, common to this issue, keeping the set from grading Nr/Mt or better throughout. The equivalent SMR value for just the six graded cards (factoring in the Mantle and Seaver half-grades at the lower whole level and not including the additional 603 cards!) is $1,120. Total: 609 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,443.75
