1960 Topps Near-Complete Set (551/572)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,778
14% Nr/Mt or better, 26% Ex-Mt, 48% Ex, and 12% lesser (mostly Vg-Ex, but including some Gd). Near-complete set of 1960 Topps, the last horizontal issue put out by the famous card manufacturer. The set has always been popular among collectors for its bright colors, simple design, and the fact that many of the biggest stars, 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 offered set is especially bright and clean with many cards downgraded only due to minor corner wear. Fourteen cards are graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Wynn (Ex), 10 Banks (Vg-Ex), 28 B. Robinson (Vg-Ex+), 50 Kaline (Ex+), 73 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 160 Mantle/Boyer (PSA EX-MT 6), 200 Mays (Ex), 210 Killebrew (Ex+), 295 Hodges (Ex+), 300 Aaron (Ex-Mt), 332 Yankees Team (Vg-Ex+), 343 Koufax (Ex, small pencil mark on reverse), 350 Mantle (PSA EX 5), 377 Maris (Vg-Ex), 420 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 490 Robinson (Vg-Ex, miscut on bottom edge), and 493 Snider (Ex+). The other graded cards: MINT 9: #164 (PD), 303, 342 (PD), and 541. NM-MT 8: #37, 133 (ST), 366, and 448. NM 7: #182, 403, and 426. EX-MT 6: #393. 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a very consistent and attractive near-complete set across the board, loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s. Missing the following twenty-one cards for completion: #7 Master & Mentor, 18 Dodgers Team, 35 Ford, 65, 148 Yastrzemski RC, 250 Musial, 316 McCovey RC, 326 Clemente, 345, 445 Spahn, 475 Drysdale, 480 Berra, 530, 554 McCovey AS, 558 Mathews AS, 559 Aparicio AS, 560 Banks AS, 563 Mantle AS, 564 Mays AS, 565 Maris AS, and 566 Aaron AS. The SMR value for just eleven of the fourteen graded cards (not including the three qualified cards or the 537 ungraded cards!) is $595. Total: 551 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,778
