90% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (includes many Nr/Mt-Mt), 10% Ex (with a few slightly lesser). This is a very sharp-looking complete set of one of the era's most popular issues, crisp and clean across the board. The 1961 Topps set includes five different Mickey Mantle cards, and was Topps' first venture into the popular League Leader subset. The Most Valuable Player subset, an extremely difficult high-number run, and the rookie cards of Juan Marichal, Billy Williams, and Ron Santo also highlight this set. We have selected ten cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA (all submitted by REA) highlighted by a high-grade example of key card #300 Mickey Mantle (PSA NM 7). Keys: #2 Maris (PSA NM 7), 10 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt), 35 Santo RC (Ex), 80 Killebrew (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 120 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 141 B.
