Grades 73% Ex to Ex-Mt (including twenty Nr/Mt) and 27% Vg to Vg-Ex (including seventeen lesser, three with color added, and a couple miscut). The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. The flush-to-the-border wood grain design of 1962 Topps makes cards from this set particularly susceptible to wear. Keys: #1 Maris (Vg), 5 Koufax (Ex), 10 Clemente (Gd), 18 Mantle/Mays (Vg), 25 Banks (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (Ex+), 45 B. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 50 Musial (Vg), 53 Maris/Mantle LL (Ex), 100 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 134a Hoeft (Vg-Ex), 139d Babe Hits 60 (Ex), 140 Ruth/Gehrig (Ex-Mt+), 150 Kaline (Vg-Ex), 174a Willey (Ex-Mt), 176a Yost (Vg-Ex), 199 Perry RC (Ex), 200 Mantle (Vg+), 218 Torre RC (Ex), 251 Yankees (Vg-Ex), 300 Mays (Vg-Ex+), 310 Ford (Vg), 313 Maris IA (15/85 L/R, otherwise Ex+), 318 Mantle IA (85/15 T/B, otherwise Ex), 320 Aaron (Ex), 340 Drysdale (Ex+), 350 F. Robinson (Ex), 360 Berra (Vg-Ex), 387 Brock RC (Ex), 394 Aaron AS (Ex), 395 Mays AS (Nr/Mt), 401 Maris/Cepeda (considerably out of focus, otherwise Vg-Ex), 425 Yastrzemski (Vg-Ex+), 471 Mantle AS (Ex), 500 Snider (Ex), 530 Gibson SP (Vg-Ex), 544 McCovey SP (Ex), 545 Wilhelm SP (Vg-Ex), 575 Schoendienst SP (Ex), 591 McDowell RC (Vg-Ex+), 592 Bouton RC (Ex-Mt), 594 Uecker RC (Ex), 596 Pepitone RC (Vg), and 598 Hickman RC (Ex). Includes twenty-five green tint versions and both variations of #134 Hoeft and 147 Kunkel. This is an attractive 1962 Topps set, superior to the average set offered of this very condition-sensitive issue. Total 600 cards (set of 598 plus 2 variations). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
