78% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (includes some better), 20% Ex, and 2% slightly lesser. This is an extremely crisp, clean set, very likely assembled straight from packs or vending boxes in the year of issue: at a glance these cards appear even stronger than the extremely impressive technically accurate condition breakdown. This is a beautiful set! After winning the Most Valuable Player award in 1965, Willie Mays was honored by Topps with its card #1 position in the 1966 set. The set is also well known for the scarcity of the high-number series, with many single-printed cards, in addition to being the only Topps set to feature Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, and Willie Mays on the same card (#215). We have selected five cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Mays (miscut along the left edge, otherwise Ex), 30 Rose (PSA EX-MT+ 6.5), 50 Mantle (PSA NM 7 [ST]), 70 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt), 72 Perez (Vg-Ex), 100 Koufax (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex), 110 Banks (Ex-Mt), 120 Killebrew (Ex-Mt), 125 Brock (Ex-Mt), 126 Palmer RC (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 160 Ford (Ex-Mt), 195 Morgan (Nr/Mt), 200 Mathews (Ex), 215 NL Batting LDRS (Ex), 254 Jenkins RC (Ex-Mt), 288 Sutton RC (Nr/Mt), 300 Clemente (PSA NM 7), 310 F. Robinson (Ex), 320 Gibson (Ex-Mt), 365 Maris (20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 390 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt-Mt), 410 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 500 Aaron (PSA NM 7), 526 Twins (Ex-Mt), 530 Roberts (Ex-Mt), 535 Davis SP (Ex), 540 McLain (Nr/Mt), 550 McCovey (Ex), 580 B. Williams (90/10 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 583 Tigers (Ex), 590 Skowron (Ex-Mt), and 598 Perry (PSA EX-MT 6). This is an exceptionally attractive, fresh-looking complete set, filled with stars and Hall of Famers, dating from the heart of the 1960s. Total 598 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000.
