1968 Topps Complete PSA-Graded Set (598)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $6,463

This is a gorgeous high-grade complete set of 1968 Topps baseball cards. All 598 cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA.

This set is listed on the PSA Set Registry under "REA Spring 2010" with an average grade of 7.75 (25th-highest graded). Highlighted by the rookie cards of HOFers Nolan Ryan and Johnny Bench, this set also includes the extremely popular “combo” cards featuring more than one player, with #480 Manager's Dream (with Roberto Clemente), #490 Superstars (Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle, and Willie Mays), and #530 Bird Belters (Frank and Brooks Robinson). The PSA grades are as follows: 174 MINT 9: including #72 John, 90 Pinson, 120 Stottlemere (OC), 167 Howard (OC), 200 Cepeda (OC), 220 Killebrew (OC), 294 Schoendienst (OC), 364 Morgan AS, 365 B.

Robinson, 377, 418, 458, 471, 480 Manager's Dream, 493, 514, 527, 542, 550 Boyer, 551, 565, and 570. 300 NM-MT 8: including #1, 20 B. Robinson, 45 Seaver (OC), 50 Mays, 58 Mathews, 86 Stargell, 144 Morgan, 150 Clemente, 177 Ryan RC, 230 Rose, 240 Kaline, 247 Bench RC, 250 Yastrzemski, 290 McCovey, 330 Maris, 355 Banks, 370 Aaron AS, 374 Clemente AS, 408 Carlton, 490 Superstars, 520 Brock, 528 Tigers, 530 Bird Belters, and 575 Palmer. Nine NM+ 7.5: #37 B. Williams, 48, 179, 205 Marichal, 251, 270 Alou, 282, 320, and 548. Eighty NM 7: including #80 Carew, 100 Gibson, 110 Aaron, 145 Drysdale, and 500 F. Robinson. Three EX-MT 6: #165 Oliva, 280 Mantle, and 529. This is very attractive high-grade complete set of this classic late 1960s Topps issue. This set looks like it was assembled from cards right out of packs or vending machines in the year of issue (which, in fact, we believe it was). The grading fees alone to encapsulate 598 cards would literally be thousands of dollars! Total 598 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $6,463
