Complete set of 1965 Topps "Ugly Stickers" consisting of 164 different stickers. This is one of the all-time great Topps nonsport sets and has always had a very special place in popular culture and in the hearts of collectors. The "Ugly Stickers" set was so popular it was actually issued on three separate occasions: 1965, 1973-74, and 1976. These are the originals from 1965 when the set was first issued, to the delight of children and, well, the horror of parents everywhere. The set is highly regarded by collectors both because of the exceptional quality of the artwork and its representation of the 1960s lowbrow cultural monster-art craze. There are only 44 different designs in the set, and each design was issued with four different names (except #29, 30, 32, and 40). The set ranges from Vg-Ex to Ex overall (with a few slightly better). This is an extremely attractive complete set of this very unusual and popular 1960s series issued by Topps. Accompanying the set is an original "Ugly Stickers" wrapper (Vg). Total 164 cards plus one wrapper. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,293
