Presented here is a highly collectible example of one of Topps greatest efforts in the late 1960’s, the colorful 1967 Baseball issue that boasts some of the finest photography the company ever produced, presented in a clean, simple design that captivated collectors. This is one of those rare instances where the key cards are essentially in a superior condition to the rest of the aggregation, as testified by a grouping of nearly two dozen Hall of Famers and high-value cards that have been slabbed and graded by PSA. The preponderance of this group – 12 of 23 – have been adjudged PSA 8 Near-Mint to Mint, and the remaining 10 are graded PSA 7 Near-Mint, along with a single PSA 7.5. That’s an imposing pedigree for a complete set that ends up with an overall grade of Excellent to Near-Mint, with the emphasis falling into the Ex-Mt category, and a few below. The cards have a nice uniform presentation, with excellent photo registration and color intensity, good centering and gloss. The slabbed cards: PSA 8 Near-Mint to Mint (12) – No. 146 Carlton, 200 Mays, 236 League Leaders, 250 Aaron, 333 Jenkins, 337 Morgan, 369 Hunter, 400 Clemente, 430 Rose, 460 Killebrew, 500 Marichal and 604 Red Sox Team; PSA 7.5 Near-Mint Plus – No. 131 Yankees Team; PSA 7 Near-Mint (10) – No. 1 Champions, 45 Maris, 150 Mantle, 210 Gibson, 334 Twins Team, 355 Yastrzemski, 569 Carew Rookie, 581 Seaver Rookie, 600 Brooks Robinson and 609 John.
