90% range from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex-Mt and including a few Nr/Mt-Mt), and 10% Vg to Vg-Ex (with a few slightly lesser). Very attractive complete, mostly high-grade set of 1961 Topps. The Most Valuable Player subset, five different Mickey Mantle cards, the popular League Leader subset, an extremely difficult high-number run, and the rookie cards of Juan Marichal, Billy Williams, and Ron Santo are among the many highlights of this set.
