Extremely attractive high-grade complete set of 1969 Topps Football cards. Condition is 57% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (mostly Nr/Mt) and 43% Ex to Ex-Mt (including 5% slightly lesser). The colored flush-to-the-border design of the 1969 Topps Football low-number series makes this set particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. Forty-nine cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. This classic set features all the stars of the era, including rookie cards of Hall of Famer Larry Csonka and Brian Piccolo, and stars such as Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath, Dick Butkus, Bart Starr, and Fran Tarkenton. Keys: #25 Unitas (Ex-Mt), 26 Piccolo RC (Vg-Ex+), 51 Sayers (Nr/Mt), 100 Namath (Nr/Mt-Mt), 120 Csonka RC (Nr/Mt), 139 Butkus (Nr/Mt), 150 Tarkenton (Ex), 161 Griese (Ex), and 215 Starr (Nr/Mt). PSA grading composite: NM-MT 8 (14 cards): #11, 41, 42, 63, 84, 85, 86, 107, 111, 136, 145 (SGC NM/MT 88), 179, 185, and 253 (ST).
