19% Nr/Mt (including a couple better), 71% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 10% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a couple with color added, a couple that measure small, and a couple miscut). The 1962 Topps set has a well-deserved reputation for being the era's most condition-sensitive issue. This is a very pleasing mid- to high-grade complete set of this classic, with all the great stars of the era. Also included are nine variations: three "green tints" and variations for #139 (x2), 174, 176, 190, and 516. Eleven cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA (six of which were submitted by REA).
