Presented is an outstanding high-grade complete set of 1962 Topps football cards. 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 52% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (with a few Nr/Mt-Mt) 40% Vg-Ex to Ex, and 8% Gd to Vg (including one lesser). Eleven cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Unitas (90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex), 5 Berry (Vg), 17 Ditka RC (Vg), 28 Brown (NM 7), 36 Davis RC (EX 5), 63 Starr (Vg-Ex+), 64 Hornung (85/15 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex+), 90 Tarkenton RC (EX-MT 6), 102 Tittle (Gd), 104 Gifford (Ex), 115 Jurgensen (5/95 L/R, otherwise Ex), and 127 Layne (Ex-Mt). Additional PSA graded cards: NM-MT 8 (2 cards): #13 Wade SP and 22 George (OC, 10/90 L/R). NM 7 (4 cards): #42, 75 Packers SP, 86 Richter, and 158. EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #21 Atkins and 166 Mitchell. Two cards have ballpoint pen signatures: #19 LeClerc and 132 Michaels. This is a beautiful set that is far above the average normally encountered for 1962 Topps football! The total SMR value for just the ten unqualified graded cards is $720. Total: 176 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
