Two 1961 Topps Complete Sets (587 cards per set) Plus 440 Duplicates

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,581

The consignor of this lot REALLY likes 1961 Topps! Many years ago this collector sent us two 1961 Topps sets. We had no idea he had more until this package arrived with another two sets plus 440 extra cards. (We're not sure, but we think he may have single-handedly kept the local candy store in business in 1961.)
