    Description

    1960 Leaf "Big Heads" SGC Graded Near Set (5). Among the most obscure and rare entries from the 1960's are the very rare Leaf "Big Head" cards named for the closely cropped portraits of the eight subjects that comprise the set. At one time, these elusive gems were thought to be unissued proofs, now "pre-production" variants is a more accurate description. Even the severely limited supply confirms full factory finishing laying to rest the original "hand cut proof" status. Offered is a near set of five cards including the undisputed most desired subject in HoFer Luis Aparicio. Includes: Graded - SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 4 cards, #'s 1 Luis Aparicio, 17 Walt Moryn, 23 Joe Jay and 35 Jim Coates; SGC 84 NM 7: 1 card, #61 Vic Rehm. A remarkably well preserved selection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
