1963 Topps Football Complete PSA-Graded Set (170)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $5,287.50

Presented is an extraordinary ultra high-grade complete set of 1963 Topps football cards. This is by far the finest set of this popular issue we have ever offered. The colored flush-to-the-border design of the 1963 Topps football set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. All cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA, as follows: MINT 9, 115 NM-MT 8s, fifty-two NM 7s, and two EX-MT 6s. This classic set features all the stars of the era, including rookie cards of Hall of Famers Deacon Jones, Bob Lilly, and Ray Nitschke, and stars such as Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Mike Ditka, Bart Starr, and Fran Tarkenton. The PSA grades are as follows: One MINT 9: #151. 115 NM-MT 8: #3 (OC), 4 Berry, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14 Jim Brown, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 Groza, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 Deacon Jones (RC), 45, 46, 48, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59 Huff, 60, 62 Ditka, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 74 Meredith, 76, 77, 78, 81, 85 Checklist, 86 Starr, 87 Taylor, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95 Wood (RC), 97, 98 Tarkenton, 99, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107 Marshall (RC), 109, 110 Jurgenson, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 121, 125, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150, 152, 153, 154, 155 Wilson (RC), 156, 157, 158, 159 Mitchell, 161, 162, 163, 165, and 170 Checklist (last card in set).

Two EX-MT 6: #168 and 169. This set has been assembled with great care and an uncompromising commitment to quality, with a concern for all factors, but with a special consideration to centering, which is evident throughout the entire set.
