    Description

    1961 Topps Baseball High Grade Complete Set (587) - With Over 500 PSA-Graded Cards! The graded portion of this presentation holds a 7.99 GPA (#38 on the PSA Set Registry). All collectors quickly come to the realization that not all cards graded the same share the same qualities. This beautiful assembly is a step above what the the standard grade breakdown tells us. The set comes to us from a veteran dealer/collector who was quite picky about the quality of the cards he put in his personal collection. Eye value was very important to this hobbyist. This is the finest 1961 set he had assembled. Every card has pleasing color and glossy surfaces with more than a few prime candidates for grade review. Includes: Graded - PSA Mint 9: 25 cards, w/#'s 44 Mantle/Maris LL, 200 Spahn, 405 Gehrig, 529 and 536; PSA NM-MT 8: 475 cards, #'s 1 Groat, 2 Maris, 10 Robinson, 20 Roberts, 35 Santo, 41 Mays/Clemente LL, 43 Banks/Aaron LL, 80 Killebrew, 88 Ashburn, 120 Mathews, 141 B.
