1961 Topps Complete Set (587) with 99 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,463

90% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt), 10% Ex (with a few slightly lesser). This is an extremely attractive, high-grade complete set of 1961 Topps baseball. Of the 587 cards in the set, ninety-nine (17%) have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Included are twenty-nine NM-MT 8s, forty-four NM 7s, twenty-three EX-MT 6s including #300 Mantle, two EX 5s, and one VG 3. This set was purchased in 1961 by our consignor, an old-time collector, and has been stored in the closet ever since. This is an outstanding set across-the-board! The PSA grades are as follows: Twenty-nine NM-MT 8: #6, 13, 14, 26, 77, 92, 99, 100, 147, 149, 160 Ford (PD), 193, 206, 214, 235, 260 Drysdale, 362, 371 Skowron, 393, 415 Aaron, 417 Marichal RC, 420, 443 Snider, 457, 532, 541, 549, 550, and 576 Maris AS. Forty-four NM 7: #4, 22, 32, 35 Santo RC, 41, 44 HR LDRS, 46, 56, 101, 113, 162, 200 Spahn, 203, 207 Koufax/Podres, 211 Gibson, 215, 228 Yankees Team, 233, 236, 241, 242, 290 Musial, 320, 350 Banks, 381, 388 Clemente, 401 Ruth 60th HR, 406 Mantle HR, 408, 422, 425 Berra, 440 Aparicio, 448, 460 Hodges, 475 Mantle MVP, 482 Mays MVP, 500, 510, 511, 516, 542, 571 Mazeroski AS, 572 B. Robinson AS, and 579 Mays AS. Twenty-three EX-MT 6: #25, 43, 120 Mathews, 141 B. Williams RC, 150 Mays, 287 Yastrzemski, 300 Mantle, 307 Mantle WS, 344 Koufax, 360 F. Robinson, 405 Gehrig Benched, 429 Kaline, 437, 472 Berra MVP, 478 Maris MVP, 484 Aaron MVP, 517 McCovey, 525, 543, 545 Wilhelm, 570 Fox AS, 577 Aaron AS, and 580 Kaline AS. Two EX 5: #240 and 575 Banks AS. One VG 3: #2 Maris. Ungraded Keys: #1 Groat (Ex), 10 B. Robinson (75/25 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 80 Killebrew (Nr/Mt), 88 Ashburn (Ex-Mt), 89 Martin (Nr/Mt), 430 Mazeroski (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 455 Wynn (Nr/Mt), 480 Campanella MVP (Nr/Mt), 485 Banks MVP (Ex-Mt), 578 Mantle AS (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex), 581 F. Robinson AS (Vg-Ex), 586 Ford AS (Ex), and 589 Spahn AS (Ex). The balance of the cards which have not been encapsulated range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, averaging Nr/Mt overall. It is expensive to encapsulate a complete set with hundreds of cards, but the consignor did make the substantial investment of grading ninety-nine cards, which for a set that is not entirely graded is an extremely substantial selection. Bright and crisp complete set of this classic 1960s issue. The SMR value for just the ninety-seven graded cards (not including the one qualified card of Ford, the one VG 3 of Maris, and the 488 ungraded cards) is $4,321. Total: 587 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000++.
