    Description

    1961 Topps Baseball High Grade Complete Set (587) Including Over 200 PSA Graded Cards. A very impressive display of 47 year old collectibles. If cards were judged solely on physical characteristics, we have one of the finer sets in the hobby. This 587-card complete set of 1961 Topps baseball cards offers glossy surfaces, sharp corners with very few physical detriments. Centering although not a physical aspect of a card's condition is merely a visual one. Only due to the standards set by grading services does it become a determining factor for precise technical assessment. We would present this as an ideal acquisition for the hobbyist who's desire isn't handcuffed by less than ideal centering. A total of 204 cards have been graded by PSA. Highlights include: Graded Cards - PSA MINT 9: 38 cards w/#'s 4, 7 White Sox Team, 20 Roberts (OC), 21, 25 Red's Artillery, 26, 27, 29, 33, 34, 37, 41 Mays/Clemente LL, 49 Drysdale/Koufax LL, 50, 57, 59, 65 Kluszewski, 67, 68, 70, 83, 86 Dodgers Team, 89 Martin, 102, 103, 107, 117, 223, 237, 277, 295, 334, 341, 367, 391, 441, 498 and 568 Skowron AS; PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 24 cards w/#'s 31, 35 Santo, 42, 43 Banks/Aaron LL, 45 Drysdale LL, 101, 214, 219, 235, 254, 275, 329, 390, 433, 435 Cepeda, 438 Flood, 443 Snider, 509, 517 McCovey, 521, 537, 562, 565 Alou and 579 Mays AS; PSA NM-MT 8: 84 cards w/#'s 2 Maris, 8, 17 CL, 30 Fox, 44 Mantle/Maris LL, 46, 47, 63 Kaat, 88 Ashburn, 95 Cash, 98 CL Red Letters, 104, 108, 112, 121, 135, 136 Alston, 138, 141 Williams, 150 Mays, 151, 161, 181, 193, 196, 210, 222, 224, 236, 245, 255, 260 Drysdale, 261, 267, 284, 287 Yastrzemski, 290 Musial, 303, 304, 311 Ford WS, 317, 323, 331, 333, 335, 347, 349, 350 Banks, 357, 360 Robinson, 370, 375, 386, 408 Mathewson HL, 409 Johnson HL, 411, 454, 457, 459, 471 Rizzuto MVP, 504, 511, 524, 525, 527, 529, 536, 539, 545 Wilhelm, 549, 550, 552, 554 Pirates, 557, 560, 561, 569, 573 Boyer AS, 577 Aaron AS, 580 Kaline AS, 582, 583, 584 and 586 Ford AS; PSA NM+ 7.5: 6 cards w/#'s 15, 177, 356, 485 Banks MVP, 541 and 574 Aparicio AS; PSA NM 7: 51 cards w/#'s 28, 109, 119, 160 Ford, 173, 200 Spahn, 207 Koufax/Podres, 220, 230, 238 Gilliam, 250, 280, 293, 320, 327, 330 Colavito, 344 Koufax, 373, 401 Ruth HL, 417 Marichal, 430 Mazeroski, 442, 455 Wynn, 456, 460 Hodges, 472 Berra MVP, 473, 476, 477 Fox MVP, 480 Campanella MVP, 481, 482 Mays MVP, 484 Aaron MVP, 486, 490 Bunning, 493, 495, 497, 506, 510, 515, 518, 530, 542 Twins, 543 Craig, 563, 572 Robinson AS, 575 Banks AS, 578 Mantle AS, 581 Robinson AS and 589 Spahn AS; PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, #576 Maris AS.
