Description

Released at the dawn of the turbulent sixties these 1960 and 1961 Topps baseball starter sets feature (831) different cards. Primarily in mid- to off-grade, each group is well on its way to completion, no small feat for the vintage Topps enthusiast. Included are 1960 Topps: (367 cards, median VG-EX, 6 high numbers) #28 B. Robinson (VG-EX), #35 Ford (VG-EX), #50 Kaline (VG-EX), #136 Kaat RC (EX), #148 Yastrzemski RC (EX/EX-MT), #160 Mantle/Boyer (FR), #200 Mays (EX), #250 Musial (VG-EX), #350 Mantle (FR/GD), #490 F.

Mathews (VG-EX), #207 Koufax/Podres (GD), #211 Gibson (EX), #290 Musial (VG-EX), #307 Mantle WS (VG-EX), #344 Koufax (VG-EX), #350 Banks (EX-MT), #360 F. Robinson (GD-VG), #415 Aaron (VG/VG-EX), #443 Snider (VG), #475 Mantle MVP (GD), #478 Maris MVP (VG-EX) and #586 Ford AS (VG-EX). The more difficult latter series for each edition presents as well, if not better, than their lower series contemporaries. With some examples better and others lesser than the aggregate, most of the cards reveal either minor edge and corner wear, creasing, centering issues, and scant examples of writing. With such a diverse group present, these vintage Topps cards are a must for anyone attempting these challenging sets. For a complete list of key cards and high numbers, please visit our website.
