1964 Topps Autographed Set (562 of 587)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $4,930.00

1964 Topps near-complete set comprised of 562 different of the 587 cards in the set, all autographed; twenty-eight extra multiple-player cards are also included, for a total of 590 cards. It was often difficult to get two players to sign the same card, so an alternative was to get doubles of the multiplayer cards and have one player sign each. The missing twenty-five numbers for completion are as follows: #5, 8, 10, 50 Mantle, 113, 160 Boyer, 207, 225 Maris, 236, 254, 256, 322, 336, 339, 350 McCovey, 389 Umbricht (not possible, died in 1964), 413, 427, 436, 440 Clemente, 443, 476, 511, 550 Hubbs (not possible, died in 1964), 574. All 562 different cards (plus 28 duplicates) have been signed and the signatures range in grade from "6" to "10", averaging an "8" overall: 44% are signed in ballpoint pen and 56% in Sharpie marker or felt-tip pen. Keys: #21 Berra (Vg-Ex), 29 Brock (Vg), 55 Banks (Vg-Ex), 120 Drysdale (Vg), 125 Rose (Vg-Ex), 146 John (Vg-Ex), 150 Mays (Ex), 155 Snider (Ex), 167 Piniella (Vg-Ex), 200 Koufax (Vg), 210 Yaz (Ex), 230 B.

Bombers (Vg), 380 Ford (Vg), 400 Spahn (Ex), 423 Aaron/Mays (Ex), 460 Gibson (Vg), 541 Niekro (Vg-Ex). A few of the many key rare signed cards of now deceased players include: Boozer, E. Howard, Alston, Flood, Murtaugh, McNally, Fox, Coker, Lau, Post, Craft, Stafford, Toth, Gilliam, Stengel, Martinez, Walls, Carreon, Bertell, Cash, Haddix, Jackson, Hodges, Brewer, Farrell, Newman, and many more.

SOLD FOR $4,930.00
