Presented is an outstanding high-grade complete set of 1962 Topps football cards. This is one of the finest sets of this popular issue we have ever offered. The black border design of the 1962 Topps football set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. This classic set features all the stars of the era, including rookie cards of Hall of Famers Mike Ditka and Fran Tarkenton, and stars such as Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Bart Starr, and Ernie Davis. Condition of the set is 24% Nr/Mt (including six Nr/Mt-Mt) 47% Ex-Mt, and 29% Ex (including four slightly lesser). Thirty cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA (unless otherwise noted). Keys: #1 Unitas (EX-MT 6), 5 Berry (Ex-Mt), 17 Ditka RC (EX-MT 6 [OC]), 21 Atkins (NM-MT 8), 28 Brown (EX-MT 6), 36 Davis RC (EX-MT+ 6.5), 58 Karras (NM 7), 63 Starr (NM 7), 64 Hornung (80/20 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 72 Jordan (NM+ 7.5), 88 Gabriel RC (NM 7), 90 Tarkenton RC (EX 5), 102 Tittle (Nr/Mt), 104 Gifford (Ex-Mt), 115 Jurgensen (Ex-Mt), 127 Layne (SGC NM 84), 152 Brodie (BVG Near Mint 7), 164 Snead RC (NM 7), and 166 Mitchell (SGC EX/NM 80). Additional PSA graded cards: NM-MT 8 (5 cards): #89 Rams, 126 Eagles, 130, 148, and 158. NM 7 (9 cards): #3, 18, 67, 73, 111 (NM+ 7.5), 133, 146, 169, and 172. EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #62 and 65 (EX-MT+ 6.5). This is a very attractive set that is far above the average normally encountered for 1962 Topps football! Total: 176 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
