Complete set of 1960 Leaf, grading 51% Nr/Mt (including a few Nr/Mt-Mt) and 49% Ex to Ex-Mt (including seven lesser). Leaf packaged these unusual glossy black-and-white cards with marbles in an attempt to navigate contract terms with players, which dictated that only Topps could issue cards of modern ballplayers with bubble gum. Keys: #1 Aparicio (Vg-Ex), 25a Grant (Error – white cap, Nr/Mt-Mt), 25b Grant (Corrected – dark cap, Ex-Mt ), 27 B. Robinson (Ex-Mt+), 37 Snider (Vg+), 69 Wilhelm (Nr/Mt), 94 Baseball’s Two Hal Smiths (Nr/Mt), 125 Anderson (Ex), 128 Cepeda (Ex), 141 Flood (Nr/Mt), and 144 Bunning (Ex). One of the era’s most unusual and interesting issues! Total: 144 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
