1963 Topps Complete Set (576) with 87 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $5,875

30% Nr/Mt or better, 70% range from Ex to Ex-Mt (includes a few slightly lesser). This is an extraordinarily high grade 1963 Topps set. The flush-to-the-border design of this issue makes the cards very susceptible to corner and edge wear. The offered set is in exceptionally high grade for the issue. This is a very sharp-looking set! Highlighted by the rookie cards of Pete Rose and Willie Stargell, the 1963 Topps also includes many additional key star cards in the difficult high-number series, including Roberto Clemente and Duke Snider. Of the 576 cards in the set, eighty-seven cards (representing 15% of the set) have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA, including the many key cards (Rose, Mantle, Clemente, Aaron, and Musial). The PSA grades are as follows: Two MINT 9: #180 Skowron and #535 Perry. Thirty-eight NM-MT 8: #16, 29a, 29b, 33, 45, 54b DeBusschere RC (1963 variation), 57, 63, 72, 77, 79, 81, 91, 103, 112, 119, 124, 137, 150, 204, 209, 214, 249, 257, 290, 331 (OC), 428, 462, 470 Tresh SP, 489, 515, 517, 527, 533, 551, 553 Stargell RC, 568, and 576 (last card in set). Forty-four NM 7: #6, 12, 13, 17, 18 Buc Blasters, 25 Kaline, 38, 41, 42, 60, 62, 76, 110, 129, 138 Mays/Musial, 144, 154 Alston, 167, 169 Perry, 173 Bombers' Best with Mantle, 200 Mantle, 240 Colavito, 250 Musial, 275 Mathews, 282, 340 Berra, 345 B.

This is a very strong, extremely attractive complete set with most cards ranging from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt. The 1963 Topps is one of the all-time classic 1960s issues. The SMR value for just the eighty-seven PSA-graded cards (not including the 493 ungraded cards) is $4,700. Total 580 cards (complete set of 576 plus four variations). Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $5,875
