Exceptionally attractive complete set of twenty 1960 Armour Coins plus two of the three additional checklisted variations needed for a complete master player set. Issued one coin per package of Armour hot dogs, these plastic coins featured a raised bust of the player on front with the player name at top and team name at the bottom. Similar to the company's 1955 coin issue, coins from this series can be found in a number of different colors. A true master set would have all possible color variations, which is why we have opted to call this assembly a near-complete master player set, in which one of each player and caption variation is present. All twenty-two coins are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. PSA Grading Composite: Six GEM MINT 10: Colavito, Conley, Ford (HOF), Mathews (HOF), Pinson, Wynn (HOF). Ten MINT 9: Aaron/Braves (HOF), Banks (HOF), Boyer, Crandall, Daley (key to the set), Fox (HOF), Malzone/Boston Red Sox, Mays (HOF), Stuart, and Triandos. Four NM-MT 8: Aaron/Milwaukee Braves, Drysdale/L.A. condensed (HOF), Malzone/Red Sox, and Mantle (HOF). One NM 7: Kaline (HOF). One EX-MT 6: Allison. Missing only Drysdale/space between L. and A. for completion. This is a superb, high-grade complete set plus two variations from this popular 1960s food issue. Total: 22 coins. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++.
