Presented is an outstanding collection of 333 cards from the 1962 Topps Football set consisting of a partial set of 162 different (out of 176) plus 171 duplicates. 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 is 42% Ex-Mt (including some Nr/Mt), 33% Ex, 9% lesser (mostly Vg-Ex, including six miscut), and 16% altered (mostly due to trimming, including approximately ten with color added). Keys: #1 Unitas (HOF, color added, otherwise Nr/Mt), two 2 Moore (HOF, Ex-Mt and Ex), two 4 Perry (HOF, Ex-Mt and Ex), 5 Berry (HOF, Ex-Mt+), two 8 Marchetti (HOF, both Ex-Mt), 17 Ditka RC (HOF, color added, otherwise Ex-Mt), three 21 Atkins (HOF, two Ex+ and Vg-Ex+), two 32 Groza (HOF, Ex+ and slight trim, otherwise Ex+), two 36 Davis RC (Ex+ and 85/15 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 39 Don Meredith (Ex+), 56 Lary (HOF, Ex), four 58 Karras (two Ex-Mt and two 0/100 L/R, otherwise Ex), 59 Schmidt (HOF, Ex), three 60 Lane (HOF, Ex-Mt+, Ex, and trimmed, otherwise Nr/Mt), three 63 Starr (HOF, Ex, color added, otherwise Ex+, and miscut top edge, otherwise Ex-Mt+), 64 Hornung (HOF, Vg-Ex+), 67 McGee (upside down wrong back – Gilburg, Vg), two 68 Ringo (HOF, color added, otherwise Ex-Mt, and trimmed, otherwise Gd+), two 70 Gregg (HOF, Ex-Mt and Ex+), three 72 Jordan (HOF, two Ex and Vg-Ex), 76 Checklist (miscut right edge, otherwise Ex), 79 Matson (HOF, Vg-Ex), 88 Gabriel RC (Ex-Mt), 90 Tarkenton RC (HOF, possible slight trim, otherwise Ex-Mt), two 92 McElhenny (HOF, Ex, and trimmed and color added), 102 Tittle (HOF, Ex-Mt), 104 Gifford (HOF, Ex-Mt), 108 Robustelli (HOF, Ex-Mt), 110 Huff (HOF, Ex-Mt), two 127 Layne (HOF, Ex and 20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt+), four 129 Johnson (HOF, two Ex-Mt, Ex+, and trimmed, otherwise Ex+), two 134 Stautner (HOF, both Ex), 151 Kilmer RC (trimmed, otherwise Nr/Mt), five 152 Brodie (Ex-Mt, three Ex, and color added), 157 two St. Clair (HOF, both Ex), 159 Nomellini (HOF, Vg-Ex), five 164 Snead RC (SGC NM 84, two Ex, Vg-Ex+, and color added), three 166 Mitchell (HOF, two Ex and 20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 169 Anderson (EX/NM 80), and three 176 Checklist (Nr/Mt, Vg-Ex, and color added, otherwise Ex).
