1963 Topps Complete Set (576) with 61 PSA-Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,113

65% Nr/Mt or better, 35% 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, sixty-one cards (representing 11% of the set) have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA, including the many key cards (Rose, Mantle, Clemente, Aaron, and Musial). Included is one MINT 9, nine NM-MT 8s, twenty-nine NM 7s, fifteen EX-MT 6s, and seven EX 5s. This set was purchased in 1963 by our consignor, an oldtime collector, and has been stored in the closet ever since. The PSA grades are as follows: One MINT 9: #420 Richardson. Nine NM-MT 8: #25 Kaline, 46 (ST), 57 (ST), 95 (ST), 368, 410, 497 (ST), 528, and 547. Twenty-nine NM 7: #67, 68 Snider/Hidges, 90, 120 Maris, 173 Bombers' Best with Mantle, 197, 215, 243, 245 Hodges, 275 Mathews, 281, 287, 345 B. Robinson, 347 Torre (ST), 350, 352, 358, 360 Drysdale, 385, 389, 400 F. Robinson, 415 Gibson (OC), 440 Marichal, 449, 450 (ST), 492, 499, 531, and 556. Fifteen EX-MT 6: #5, 9, 115 Yastrzemski, 138 Mays/Musial, 200 Mantle, 242 Banks/Aaron, 298, 300 Mays, 412 Koufax/Drysdale/Podres, 446 Ford, 500 Killebrew, 520 Cepeda, 537 Rose RC, 540 Clemente, and 553 Stargell RC. Seven EX 5: #210 Koufax, 250 Musial, 290, 340 Berra, 380 Banks, 390 Aaron, and 490 McCovey. Ungraded Keys: #18 Buc Blasters (10/90 T/B, otherwise Ex), 320 Spahn (no top border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 470 Tresh (Ex), 472 Brock (25/75 L/R, otherwise Ex), 525 Fox (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 544 Staub RC (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), and 550 Snider (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). This is a very strong, extremely attractive complete set with most cards ranging from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt. Aside from some centering problems here and there, this set has a Near Mint appearance throughout. The 1963 Topps is one of the most popular 1960s issues. The SMR value for just fifty-four PSA-graded cards (not including the seven qualified cards and the 515 ungraded cards) is $2,910. Total: 576 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $4,113
