Collection of four very attractive high-grade complete Topps sets dating from 1959, 1960, 1962, and 1963. Each year's set is divided into groups of thirty-six cards (except 1960, which has groupings of thirty-two), with the cards in each group mounted onto a single large plastic sheet (20 x 25.25 inches) by means of a thin strip of clear tape at the top and bottom border of each card. These cards were prepared in this manner to allow them to be photographed for a Topps publishing project. Over the years, Topps published a number of outstanding books featuring full-color images of baseball card sets from past years, and these very cards were used in the creation of these books. Stunning high-grade cards were used as the plate specimens. The cards could easily be professionally removed if desired. The cards are pack-fresh, right off the printing press, and grade Nr/Mt or better overall (except the 1962 set is Vg-Ex to Ex). Eleven of the 1959 Topps and four of the 1960 Topps plastic sheets have been cut into smaller sections. Four extremely attractive complete sets, with each set loaded with all of the great stars and Hall of Famers of the era, preserved and displayed in a very unique manner. Total 2,318 cards (4 sets). Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $11,163
