Lot 1722: 1962 Topps Baseball Near Complete Set (597/598)
Auction Date:12/19/2004 9:00 PM EST
The '62 Topps set has some real challenges to obtain in high grade, especially due to the fact that the borders are colored and that centering and print issues usually aren't top shelf. This virtually complete run of these great looking cards (missing only #580 Monboquette) is full of solid Ex and better cards with a fresh looking run of high #'s. Grading 20% NM and better, 65% Ex to Ex/Mt and 15% lower, the set is a solid, consistent offering. PSA graded cards include Koufax (6), Clemente (7 oc), Manager's Dream (7), Banks (7), #53 AL HR Ldrs. (6), Ford (7), #318 Mantle Connects (7), Aaron (7), Berra (7), Wynn (7), Drysdale A/S (7), Kaline A/S (7), Mantle A/S (6), Howard A/S (7), Marichal (7), Gibson (7), #546 (8), #561 (8), #565 (8), #573 (8), #591 (8) and #596 (7). Ungraded keys include Maris Good, Mathews Ex/Mt, Musial Ex, Spahn Ex/Mt, Perry (R) Ex, Mantle Ex, Mays Ex/Mt, F. Robby Ex, Brock Ex and McCovey Ex/Mt. This is a solid, but not spectacular set that will be perfect for someone building a nice run of '60's sets.
