Complete set of 1960 Leaf, ranging in grade from 90% Ex to Nr/Mt to 10% Vg to Vg-Ex. Missing only card #25 Grant (corrected version– dark cap) for completion. Included with the set is the scarce variation card of #25 Grant (error – white cap) for a total of 144 cards. Leaf packaged these unusual glossy black-and-white cards with marbles in an attempt to navigate contract terms with players, which dictated that only Topps could issue cards of modern ballplayers with bubble gum. One card is graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Aparicio (Ex-Mt), 25 Grant (error – white cap, Nr/Mt), 27 B. Robinson (Ex-Mt), 37 Snider (PSA NM 7), 69 Wilhelm (Ex-Mt), 125 Anderson (Vg-Ex), 128 Cepeda (Ex), 141 Flood (Ex-Mt), and 144 Bunning (Vg). One of the era’s most unusual and interesting issues! Total: 144 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600+. SOLD FOR $1,304
