    1963 Topps Baseball Near Set (515/576) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! Note: After going to press, two cards were added, the set now has 517 cards.

    Rank: # 1 on the SGC Set Registry with an 88.9 GPA
    . This high quality presentation comes to us from a veteran hobbyist and was many years in the making. Colors and gloss were certainly what this condition-conscious collector looked for. Overall, this is an impressive accumulation and only the new owner will know how long it will take to find the same quality examples to finish the set. Surprisingly, only a handful of the scarcer middle and high numbers are unaccounted for. Note: About 10% of this set is from a "Presentation Sets" Topps produced exclusively for employees or important clients (noted players are marked with an "*" below). These sets are notable for their coloring and glossy appearance.
