13% Nr/Mt-Mt, 37% Nr/Mt, 29% Ex-Mt, and 21% Ex (including 4% lower). Presented is an extremely attractive near-complete set consisting of 561 different cards (out of 609). The 1967 Topps set has always been extremely popular, featuring scores of stars and Hall of Famers from what is now fondly remembered by many baby boomers as the Golden Age of baseball cards. 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. Eleven cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (stars submitted by REA). Keys: #30 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 45 Maris (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 55 Drysdale (Ex+), 60 Aparicio (MINT 9), 100 F. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 103 Checklist - Mantle (Ex), 140 Stargell (20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 146 Carlton (Ex+), 150 Mantle (EX-MT 6), 166 Mathews (75/25 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 200 Mays (NM 7 [MC]), 210 Gibson (15/85 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 215 Banks (Nr/Mt), 242 Aaron/Clemente LL (85/15 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 250 Aaron (NM 7 [MC]), 285 Brock (70/30 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 337 Morgan (NM-MT 8), 355 Yastrzemski (Nr/Mt), 400 Clemente (EX-MT 6 [ST]), 417a Bruce (Ex+), 423 Fence Busters (75/25 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt+), 430 Rose (NM 7), 460 Killebrew (Nr/Mt), 475 Palmer (15/85 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 476 Perez (80/20 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 480 McCovey (75/25 L/R and T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 500 Marichal (Nr/Mt), 540 Cash (Nr/Mt), 558 Belanger RC (slight trim top edge, otherwise Nr/Mt), 560 Bunning (75/25 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 569 Carew RC (EX-MT 6), 570 Wills (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 580 Colavito (Ex), 581 Seaver RC (NM 7), 600 B. Robinson (slight trim right edge, otherwise Nr/Mt), 607 Stanley (Nr/Mt), 609 John (Ex+). Other Graded Cards: #529 (NM-MT 8) and 547 (NM 7). This is a very attractive, fresh-looking near-complete set, filled with stars and Hall of Famers, dating from the heart of the 1960s.
