1960 Leaf Complete Set Minus 1 (143 of 144)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,057.50
Complete set of 1960 Leaf, ranging in grade from 50% Ex to Ex-Mt to 50% Vg to Vg-Ex. Missing only card #144 Bunning for completion. Included with the set is the scarce variation card of #25 (Grant error) for a total of 144 cards. Leaf packaged these unusual glossy black-and-white cards with marbles in an attempt to navigate contract terms with players, which dictated that only Topps could issue cards of modern ballplayers with bubble gum. Keys: #1 Aparicio (Ex-Mt), #25 Grant (Error – white cap, Ex), 25 Grant (Corrected – dark cap, 90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 27 B. Robinson (Ex), 37 Snider (tiny black spot on back, otherwise Ex-Mt), 69 Wilhelm (Ex), 125 Anderson (Vg), 128 Cepeda (Ex-Mt), and 141 Flood (Vg). One of the era’s most unusual and interesting issues. Total 144 cards (143 cards plus variation of card #25). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
