Extraordinary near-complete set of 1969 Transogram cards consisting of fifty-eight different (out of sixty), entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. Missing only Roberto Clemente and Mickey Mantle for completion. These cards (2.5 x 3.5 inches) feature a player portrait set against a yellow background and were issued on the back of boxes of toy baseball player statues. They were designed to be hand-cut from the boxes and as such are incredibly hard to find in high grade. The offered set currently ranks first on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 6.02. Eighteen cards are the highest-graded examples, including ten that are the only examples graded at their respective level with none higher. PSA Grading Composite: MINT 9 (6 cards): Aparicio (HOF), Killebrew (HOF), Koosman, Lefebvre, May, and Rojas. NM-MT 8 (15 cards): M. Alou, Epstein, Fregosi, McCarver (MK), McLain, Monday, Odom, Oliva, Perez (HOF), B. Robinson (HOF), Staub, Stottlemyre, Tiant, Tovar, and Wilson. NM 7 (4 cards): Brock (HOF), McNally, Reichardt, and White. EX-MT 6 (8 cards): Aaron (HOF), Cardenal, Cater, Harrelson, Howard, Knoop, Petrocelli, and Torre (HOF). EX 5 (8 cards): F. Alou, Banks (HOF), Haller, Horton, Mays (HOF), Seaver (HOF), Ward, and Yastrzemski (HOF). VG-EX 4 (13 cards): Allen, Callison, Davis, John, Marichal (HOF), Mazeroski (HOF), McCovey (HOF), Pascual, F.
