13% Nr/Mt-Mt or better, 35% Nr/Mt, 47% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 5% slightly lesser. Outstanding high-grade set! The 1969 Topps set is highlighted by the rookie cards of Oakland A's HOFers Reggie Jackson and Rollie Fingers, plus the last card of Mickey Mantle. This final card of "The Mick," who retired March 1, 1969, contains his complete statistical record on the reverse. This is a beautiful set with many cards in extremely high grade. Twenty-two cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC (except for two PSA as noted). Keys: #20 Banks (NM/MT+ 92), 50 Clemente (NM 84), 85 Brock (Nr/Mt), 95 Bench (PSA NM-MT 8), 100 Aaron (70/30 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 120 Rose (NM/MT+ 92), 130 Yastrzemski (NM/MT 88), 190 Mays (NM/MT 88), 200 Gibson (miscut left edge, otherwise Nr/Mt), 250 F. Robinson (NM 84), 255 Carlton (NM/MT+ 92), 260 Jackson RC (EX/NM 80), 370 Marichal (NM+ 86), 375 Killebrew (Ex+), 400 Drysdale (Ex-Mt+), 410 Kaline (NM 84), 412 Checklist (Mantle, PSA NM-MT 8), 430 Bench AS (NM 84), 440 McCovey (Ex-Mt), 480 Seaver (NM+ 86), 485 Perry (Nr/Mt), 500 Mantle (NM/MT+ 92), 510 Carew (NM/MT 88), 533 Ryan (NM+ 86), 545 Stargell (NM+ 86), 550 B. Robinson (NM/MT+ 92), 573 Palmer (NM/MT+ 92), 597 Fingers RC (NM/MT+ 92), and 630 Bonds RC (NM/MT 88). Spectacularly clean and crisp high-grade set with the usual number of mostly minor centering problems, which accounts for the downgrades on almost all the cards graded Ex or Ex-Mt. The total SMR value for just the twenty-two graded cards (factoring in the eleven half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the 642 ungraded cards!) is $2,677. Total: 664 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++.
