This is a handsome example of a key mid-1960’s Topps classic, the 1965 set with the (mostly) color-coded borders by teams. This particular offering boasts wonderful, vivid colors and sharp photography, with excellent gloss and a sharp, consistent presentation. The set is generally Ex-Mt to Nr-Mt, with the emphasis probably to Ex-Mt. There are some Excellent cards and a few below, but there are also several neat little runs of blazing Near-Mint cards, streaks that appear at intervals though the various series. The offered set has generally good centering, with perhaps 100 or so cards with the kind of centering that might prompt an upgrade, though not all of those would be severe enough to dictate and off-center designation. Breakdown of key cards: No. 1 League Leaders – Excellent, 15 Roberts – Ex-Mt o/c, 16 Morgan – VG-Ex, 20 Bunning – Nr-Mt o/c, 50 Marichal – Nr-Mt o/c, 95 Mazeroski – Ex-Mt, 110 Santo – Ex-Mt, 130 Kaline – Ex-Mt, 155 Maris – VG-Ex, 160 Clemente – VG-Ex, 170 Aaron – VG-Ex, 173 Tigers Team – VG-Ex, 176 McCovey – Nr-Mt, 187 Stengel – Ex, 189 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 193 Perry – Ex-Mt, 200 Torre – VG-Ex, 205 Spahn – VG, 207 Rose – VG-Ex, 217 Alston – Ex-Mt, 220 Williams – Ex, 250 Mays – VG-Ex, 260 Drysdale – Nr-Mt o/c, 273 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 276 Wilhelm – Nr-Mt, 300 Koufax – Ex-Mt, 320 Gibson – Nr-Mt, 330 Ford – Ex-Mt, 350 Mantle – Ex-Mt, 360 Cepeda – Ex, 361 Checklist – Nr-Mt, 377 Stargell – Vg-Ex, 385 Yastrzemski – Ex, 400 Killebrew – Nr-Mt, 410 Aparicio – Ex-Mt, 443 Checklist – Nr-Mt o/c, 470 Berra – Ex-Mt, 477 Carlton – VG-Ex, 485 Fox – Nr-Mt, 500 Mathews – Ex-Mt, 508 Checklist – Ex-Mt, 510 Banks – Good, 513 Yankees Team – Ex-Mt, 526 Hunter – VG, 540 Brock – Ex-Mt, 551 Mets Team – Nr-Mt, 556 Schoendienst – Nr-Mt o/c and 581 Perez – Good.
