Enormous collection of 1,909 autographed Topps baseball cards spanning the years 1960 through 1968. A number of duplicates are included here and for a few of the sets some of the signers are represented more than once (for example, in the 1962 set Warren Spahn has signed a number of different cards on which he appears). A total of forty Hall of Famer signatures are featured in the collection, representing nineteen different players. All signatures, penned in a variety of inks, appear on the front unless otherwise noted. Grades range from "1" to "10," averaging "7." In our inventory breakdown we have noted the ten different partial sets offered here, the number of signed cards, (including the approximate number of duplicates) per set (in parentheses), and all of the Hall of Famer cards in the respective set. 1960 Topps (236 including approximately 12 duplicates): #188 D. Williams, 212 Alston, 216 Gordon, 222 Lopez, 264 Roberts, 460 Lemon, and 493 Snider. 1961 Topps (211): #8 D. Williams, 20 Roberts, 120 Mathews, 290 Musial, and 443 Musial. 1962 Topps (204): #45 B.
