Collection of 260 Topps Venezuelan cards dating from 1962 through 1968 and representing four different rare sets. Though they receive little attention because they are virtually never found in high grade, Topps Venezuelan cards are among the most unusual and rare baseball-card sets of the decade. This is a fascinating assemblage and truly a collection unto itself! As is usually the case with Topps Venezuelan cards (which were intended to be glued into albums), condition varies. The condition ranges from Poor to Vg-Ex (includes a few Ex). The collection consists of the following: 1) 1962 (50 different): 50% Gd to Vg (including a couple Vg-Ex) and 50% Pr to Fr. 2) 1964 (51 different): 10% Fr to Vg (including one that measures small) and 90% Pr (all displaying staple holes). 3) 1966 (95 cards, including 84 different): 44% Gd to Vg (including a seven Vg-Ex) and 56% Pr to Fr (including two with color added). 4) 1968 (64 cards, including 60 different): 44% Vg-Ex (including a few Ex), 17% Vg, 16% Gd, and 23% Pr to Fr. Total: 260 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
