Complete set of 1960 Leaf, 90% ranging in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex-Mt), 10% lesser. Included with the set are two scarce variation cards (#25 Grant error and #58 Smith "team missing" back variation). 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. Keys: #1 Aparicio (Ex), 25a Grant (Error – white cap, Ex/Ex-Mt), 25b Grant (Corrected – dark cap, Ex-Mt), 27 B. Robinson (Ex/Ex-Mt), 37 Snider (Ex), 58c H. Smith (team missing on reverse variation, Vg-Ex bordering on Ex), 69 Wilhelm (Ex-Mt), 125 Anderson (Ex-Mt), 128 Cepeda (Ex-Mt), 141 Flood (Ex/Ex-Mt), and 144 Bunning (Ex). One of the era's most unusual and interesting issues. Total: 146 cards (144 cards plus variations of cards #25 and 58). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600+. SOLD FOR $1,067
