Complete set of 1965 Topps Football, one of the most popular and classic of all football-card sets, highlighted by Joe Namath's rookie card. The 1965 Topps Football set is packed with Hall of Famers, rookies, and extremely tough-to-find short prints. 30% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few Nr/Mt), 61% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 9% lower. Many cards appear far nicer than their technically accurate grades, and the set presents with a remarkable degree of consistency in terms of condition. We have submitted two cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #35 Kemp SP (Ex), 46 Brown RC (Ex), 69 Blanda SP (Ex+), 87 Checklist SP (Vg-Ex), 99 Dawson SP (Vg-Ex), 122 Namath RC (PSA EX 5), 133 Biletnikoff RC (VG-EX+ 4.5), 155 Alworth (Ex), and 176 Checklist SP (mark on front, otherwise Vg-Ex). Other Graded Cards: One SGC NM 84: #172. One PSA NM 7: #72. One PSA EX-MT 6: #19. The oversized design of the 1965 Topps Football set makes this issue particularly susceptible to damage, and makes the assembly of high-quality sets all the more difficult. This is an exceptionally attractive medium-grade set, far above average for this issue, with many key-card condition highlights and tremendous eye-appeal across the board. A high-quality complete set of one of card collecting's most popular football issues. Total: 176 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
