    1962 Topps High Grade Baseball Complete Set (598). Modification to catalog copy reflected in italicized text below:

    After an electrifying '61 season the wait youngsters faced to see what Topps would offer the next spring must have made for a painfully cold winter. What they got is still debated today. To some, Topps' 598-card edition from 1962 was a bland let down but to many many, others this set offers the ultimate collecting experience. An attractive assembly from this ever enduring issue. A total of 120 cards (119 SGC and 1 PSA) have been professionally graded.
