Offered is an exceptional ultra-high-grade complete set of 1960 Golden Press “Presidents of the United States” cards. All thirty-three cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. This classic set features thirty-three former Presidents, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Dwight Eisenhower. This set contains nine GEM MINT 10, eighteen MINT 9, five NM-MT 8, and one NM 7. This issue is very substantial and interesting, yet is somewhat overlooked in the card-collecting world. Golden Press spared no expense in producing a beautiful set of cards featuring former Presidents. These sets were originally sold in booklets and the cards were designed to be punched-out and removed from the booklet. Looking at the quality and design of the set, it is easy to appreciate its enormous aesthetic appeal both to youngsters in the 1960s and to modern vintage-card collectors that are familiar with the set. The PSA grades are as follows: Nine GEM MINT 10: #2, 3 Jefferson, 4, 6, 10, 12, 13, 19, and 27. Eighteen MINT 9: #5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 16 Lincoln, 17, 18, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 32, and 33 Eisenhower. Five NM-MT 8: #1 Washington, 14, 15, 21, and 22. One NM 7: #31 F. Roosevelt. This is a tremendous ultra-high-grade set of this historic, classic, and often overlooked nonsport issue. Total: 33 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
