Presented is a wonderful example of the popular 1960 Topps Baseball issue in a grade seldom encountered, clearly Ex-Mt to Near-Mint, with the vast majority falling into the Near-Mint designation as evidenced by 20 of the key Hall of Famers who have been slabbed and assessed as Near-Mint by PSA, and two others who earned PSA 8 Near-Mint to Mint nods. It is simply difficult to imagine finding this important issue in such superb condition, with only nine cards earning a grade of Very Good or lower. The offering presents two – at a minimum – distinct possibilities: it could be purchased on its own merits as a high-grade foundation to the first Topps issue of the decade of the 1960’s, or the huge percentage of Near-Mint cards could be used to upgrade almost any existing set. To facilitate either of those ends, we have provided a complete breakdown by grades: Near-Mint to Mint (2) – No. 7 Master and Mentor – PSA 8 and No. 377 Maris – PSA 8; Near-Mint (419) – No. 3, 8, 10 Banks - PSA 7,12 o/c, 17, 19 o/c, 20 o/c, 22, 23 o/c, 27, 28 Brooks Robinson – PSA 7, 31, 32, 36, 37, 38 o/c, 39 o/c, 42 o/c, 44, 45 o/c, 48 o/c, 49 o/c, 50 Kaline – PSA 7, 51, 52 o/c, 53 o/c, 54, 56, 57, 59 o/c, 60, 61, 63 o/c, 65, 67, 68, 70 o/c, 71 o/c, 73 Gibson – PSA 7, 74 o/c, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89 o/c, 91, 92 Herzog, 95, 96 o/c, 97, 98, 99 o/c, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 110, 111, 112 o/c, 113, 115, 117 o/c, 118, 120, 121, 122, 123, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137 o/c, 139 o/c, 140, 141, 142 o/c, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147 o/c, 148 Yastrzemski – PSA 7, 149, 150, 151 Giants Team, 152, 154, 155 o/c, 156 o/c, 157 o/c, 158, 159, 160 Rival All-Stars – PSA 7, 161, 162, 164 Reds Team, 165 o/c, 166, 167 o/c, 168 o/c, 169 o/c, 170, 171 o/c, 172 o/c, 173 o/c, 174 Indians Team, 175 o/c, 178 o/c, 179, 180 o/c, 181 o/c, 182 o/c, 183 o/c, 185, 186 o/c, 187, 189, 190 o/c, 191, 192, 193 o/c, 194 o/c, 195 o/c, 196 o/c, 197, 199, 200 Mays – PSA 7, 201, 202, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 208 White Sox Team, 209, 210 Killebrew, 211, 212, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226, 227, 228, 229, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237, 238 o/c, 239, 240 Aparicio, 241, 242, 243 o/c, 244 o/c, 245, 247, 248, 249 o/c, 250 Musial – PSA 7, 251, 252, 253, 254, 255 o/c, 256, 257, 258, 259, 260, 261, 262, 263, 264 Roberts o/c, 265, 266, 267 o/c, 268, 269 o/c, 270 o/c, 271, 272, 273, 274, 276 o/c, 277, 278, 279 o/c, 280, 281, 282, 283, 284, 285, 286 o/c, 289, 290 o/c, 291, 293, 294 o/c, 295 o/c, 296, 297 o/c, 298, 299, 300 Aaron – PSA 7, 301, 302 Phillies Team, 303, 304, 305 Ashburn o/c, 306, 307 o/c, 308 o/c, 309, 310 o/c, 312 o/c, 313, 314 o/c, 316 McCovey – PSA 7, 317, 318, 319, 320, 321, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326 Clemente – PSA 7, 327, 328, 329 o/c, 330, 331, 332 Yankees Team, 333 o/c, 335 Schoendienst o/c, 336, 337, 338, 339, 340 o/c, 341, 342, 343 Koufax – PSA 7, 344 o/c, 345, 346, 347, 348 o/c, 349 o/c, 350 Mantle – PSA 7, 351 o/c, 352, 353, 354, 355 o/c, 357, 358, 359 o/c, 361, 362, 364, 365, 366, 367, 368, 369 o/c, 370 o/c, 371, 372, 380, 382, 383, 385 o/c, 389, 390 o/c, 391, 395 Wilhelm, 396 o/c, 397, 398, 399 o/c, 401 o/c, 402, 405, 406, 407 o/c, 408, 410, 411 o/c, 412 o/c, 415, 418, 419 o/c, 420 Mathews – PSA 7, 421 o/c, 422 o/c, 423, 424, 425 o/c, 426, 429 AL Kings, 431, 433, 434, 437, 440, 441 o/c, 442, 444 o/c, 449 (diamond cut), 450 Cepeda o/c, 452 o/c, 458 o/c, 461 o/c, 462, 463, 465, 466 o/c, 468, 470 o/c, 471 o/c, 472, 474 o/c, 475 Drysdale – PSA 7, 476, 479 o/c, 480 Berra – PSA 7.5, 482, 483 o/c, 485, 487, 490 Frank Robinson – PSA 7, 491 o/c, 492, 494 Orioles Team, 495, 496, 498 o/c, 499 o/c, 500, 501 o/c, 502 Bunning, 503 o/c, 505 o/c, 508, 511, 513 Cubs Team, 515 o/c, 516 o/c, 517 o/c, 518, 520 o/c, 522 o/c, 523 o/c, 524 o/c, 531 o/c, 533 o/c, 534 o/c, 535 o/c, 536 o/c, 538 (diamond cut), 539 o/c, 541, 543 o/c, 547, 548, 549, 550 (diamond cut), 552, 553 Skowron All-Star (autographed), 556 Neal All-Star, 557 Malzone All-Star, 558 Mathews All-Star, 559 Aparicio All-Star, 560 Banks All-Star, 561 Kaline All-Star, 562 Cunningham All-Star, 563 Mantle All-Star – PSA 7, 564 Mays All-Star, 566 Aaron All-Star – PSA 7, 567 Lollar All-Star, 571 Pierce All-Star, and 572 Antonelli All-Star o/c; Ex-Mt (126) – No. 1 Wynn, 2, 4, 5, 6, 9 o/c, 13 o/c, 14, 15, 16, 18 Dodgers Team, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30, 33 o/c, 34 Anderson, 40, 41, 43 Senators Team, 46, 47, 55 Mazeroski, 58, 62, 64, 66, 69, 84, 90, 93, 94, 108, 114, 116, 119, 124, 125, 126, 153, 176, 177, 184, 188 Williams o/c, 198, 246, 275, 287, 288, 292, 311, 315, 317, 334, 356 o/c, 360, 363, 373, 374, 375 o/c, 376, 381 Braves Team, 384, 387, 388, 392, 393 o/c, 394, 403, 404 o/c, 409, 413 Athletics Team, 414, 416, 417, 427 o/c, 428, 430, 432, 435, 436, 438, 443, 446 o/c, 447, 448 o/c, 454, 456, 457, 459 o/c, 464, 467, 473, 477, 478, 481, 484 Pirates Team, 486 o/c, 488, 489 o/c, 493 Snider, 497, 504, 506, 507, 509 o/c, 510 (diamond cut), 512 o/c, 514, 519, 521 o/c, 528, 530 o/c, 532, 537 Red Sox Team, 540 o/c, 542, 544, 545, 546, 551, 555 Fox All-Star, 568 Crandall All-Star, and 570 Drysdale All-Star; Excellent (13) – No. 109, 163, 379, 386, 400, 439, 445 Spahn o/c, 460 o/c, 469, 525, 526, 554 McCovey All-Star and 569 Pascual All-Star; Very Good (7) – No. 220, 378, 451, 453, 455, 527 and 565 Maris All-Star; Fair – No. 529; Poor – No. 72 Tigers Team (presents Ex-Mt but is marked).
