    1960 Topps Baseball High-Grade Complete Set (572) - #13 "Current Finest" on the PSA Set Registry. Historically, 1960 was a pivotal year that would help shape the 1960's and into the next half century. Thurgood Marshall would win his case in Boynton v. Virginia that inspired the "Freedom Riders" and Eisenhower would sign the Civil Rights Act of 1960. John F. Kennedy won the White House and sent the first troops into Vietnam. In Iraq, Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was founded. Gas cost .25-cents a gallon. If the real world didn't scare you, Alfred Hitchcock gave us "Psycho." In the sports world, the 1960 Olympics had a new superstar in the ring named "Cassius Clay."

    This set ranks #13 on the "Current Finest" list on the PSA Set registry with an 8.13 weighted GPA. The 572-card complete set is 100% NM-MT to MINT with a few Gem MINTs for good measure. As to be expected, there are many, many cards with vivid colors, fresh gloss, crisp corners and bright white borders. For their 10th annual edition, Topps produced their largest set to date with a 572-card promotion that drew from their 1955 and 1956 editions with cards designed with a horizontal format. Once again, the set would close with All Star Selections made by Sport Magazine. The rookie class included future HoFer Jim Kaat, future 500 Home Runs Club member Willie McCovey and 3,000 Hits Club member Carl Yastrzemski or as the Boston faithful called him, "Yaz."
