Presented is a complete set of 1960 Topps baseball, which was Topps' last horizontal issue, highlighted by the rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey. Many of the biggest stars in the set, including Mantle, Mays, and Aaron, appear in the set more than once due to the All-Star card series. Mantle actually has three cards in this set, as he also appears on the #160 "Rival All-Stars" card with Ken Boyer. Two cards have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA and SGC. Condition of this set is 48% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (including a few better) and 52% Vg-Ex to Ex (including twenty-two lesser). Keys: #1 Wynn (Nr/Mt), 10 Banks (Ex-Mt), 28 B. Robinson (Ex+), 35 Ford (Ex-Mt), 50 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 73 Gibson (Ex), 148 Yastrzemski RC (Vg-Ex), 160 Mantle/Boyer (Vg-Ex), 200 Mays (Vg-Ex+), 250 Musial (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 300 Aaron (Pr), 316 McCovey RC (pen marks on front, Pr), 326 Clemente (Vg-Ex), 332 Yankees Team (Ex-Mt), 343 Koufax (Vg-Ex), 350 Mantle (pencil on back, otherwise Vg+), 377 Maris (Ex), 445 Spahn (Ex), 475 Drysdale (Vg-Ex), 480 Berra (Vg+), 490 Robinson (SGC NM+ 86), 493 Snider (Ex-Mt), 554 McCovey AS (Ex-Mt+), 555 Fox AS (PSA NM-MT 8 [OC]), 563 Mantle AS (trimmed, altered corners), 564 Mays AS (Ex+), 565 Maris AS (Nr/Mt), and 566 Aaron AS (85/15 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt). Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a relatively affordable complete set which, in addition to all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572), is loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s. Total: 572 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000.
