1962 Topps Complete Set (598) Plus 85 Variations

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $8,888

Presented is an extraordinary high grade 1962 Topps set. It is easily one of the finest we have ever handled! In addition to being in such remarkably high grade, accompanying the complete set of 598 different cards are an additional 85 variation cards, for a total of 683 cards! This set is only thirteen cards short of a complete master set (the following cards are needed for completion: #133 (green), 138 (green), 139a, 139c, 140 (green), 142 (green), 147a, 147b (green), 174a, 174b (green), 192a, 441b, and 516b). 1962 Topps is one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets and 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. Condition: 54% Nr/Mt or better, 41% Ex-Mt, and 5% Ex. This is a stunning set! It is very rare to find such an attractive complete set of this classic issue offered as a single unit, let alone with variations. Keys: #1 Maris (Ex-Mt), 5 Koufax (Ex+), 10 Clemente (PSA NM 7), 18 Mantle/Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 20 Colavito (PSA NM-MT 8), 25 Banks (Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 40 Cepeda (PSA EX-MT 6), 45 Robinson (Nr/Mt), 50 Musial (Ex+), 52 NL Batting Ldrs (PSA NM 7), 53 Maris/Mantle LL (Nr/Mt), 54 NL HR Ldrs (PSA NM-MT 8), 70 Killebrew (Ex-Mt), 100 Spahn (Ex+), 140 Gehrig/Ruth (Ex-Mt+), 150 Kaline (Ex+), 199 Perry (Ex+), 200 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6), 300 Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 310 Ford (Ex+), 313 Maris IA (Ex+), 318 Mantle IA (PSA NM+ 7.5), 320 Aaron (PSA NM 7), 340 Drysdale (Ex-Mt), 350 Robinson (Ex), 360 Berra (Ex+), 387 Brock RC (PSA NM-MT 8), 394 Aaron AS (Ex-Mt), 395 Mays AS (Nr/Mt), 401 Maris/Cepeda (Ex), 425 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt), 471 Mantle AS (Ex-Mt+), 500 Snider (PSA NM 7), 530 Gibson SP (Ex-Mt+), 544 McCovey SP (PSA NM 7), 545 Wilhelm SP (Nr/Mt), 575 Schoendienst SP (Ex-Mt), 591 McDowell (Nr/Mt), 592 Bouton (Ex-Mt), 594 Uecker (Nr/Mt), 596 Pepitone (PSA NM-MT 8), and 598 Hickman (Ex-Mt).

This is an outstanding complete set of this popular issue, with the added bonus of having eighty-four additional variations included. This lot could serve as an extraordinary foundation for the assembly of a world-class complete 1962 Topps master set. The SMR value for just the forty-eight graded cards (not including any of the 635 ungraded cards) is $3,102. Total: 683 cards (complete set of 598 plus 85 variations). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++. SOLD FOR $8,888
