90% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt), 2% Ex, and 8% Vg to Vg-Ex. This is a very crisp, high-grade set! This set was part of an original-owner collection which has been in a closet for the past fifty years. These cards were saved by our consignor in the year of issue and have not seen the light of day since 1960! The rookie cards of Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Willie McCovey highlight the 1960 Topps issue, which was Topps’ last horizontal issue. Many of the biggest stars in the set, including Mantle, Mays, and Aaron, appear in the set more than once due to the All-Star card series. Mantle actually has three cards in this set, as he also appears on the #160 "Rival All-Stars" card with Ken Boyer. We have selected eight cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC (all submitted by REA). Keys: #1 Wynn (Ex-Mt), 10 Banks (Vg), 18 Dodgers Team (Nr/Mt), 28 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt), 35 Ford (Nr/Mt-Mt), 50 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 73 Gibson (Nr/Mt), 148 Yastrzemski RC (Vg), 160 Mantle/Boyer (SGC EX/NM 80), 200 Mays (SGC VG 40), 210 Killebrew (Nr/Mt), 250 Musial (SGC NM/MT 88), 300 Aaron (SGC NM+ 86), 316 McCovey RC (Ex), 326 Clemente (SGC NM+ 86), 332 Yankees Team (Nr/Mt), 343 Koufax (SGC NM+ 86), 350 Mantle (SGC NM 84), 377 Maris (Nr/Mt), 420 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 445 Spahn (Nr/Mt), 475 Drysdale (Nr/Mt-Mt), 480 Berra (Ex-), 490 Robinson (Nr/Mt-Mt), 493 Snider (irregular cut), 554 McCovey AS (Ex-Mt), 558 Mathews AS (Ex-Mt), 560 Banks AS (Nr/Mt), 561 Kaline AS (Nr/Mt), 563 Mantle AS (SGC NM 84), 564 Mays AS (Nr/Mt), 565 Maris AS (Ex), 566 Aaron AS (Vg). Complete 1960 Topps sets show up with far less frequency than many other sets from the era. This is a beautiful high-grade set, very crisp, clean, and attractive across the board, and, in addition to all the special cards and scarce high numbers (#507-572), it is loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1960s. Total 572 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $7,050
