Description

Strong 1957-1968 Topps Baseball shoebox collection with multiple Hall of Famers including Aaron, Clemente, Koufax, Mantle and Mays. Varying degrees of duplication is found throughout this gathering which displays mild perimeter discoloration along approximately 20-25% of the edges. However, the same storing methods also preserved the majority of these cards over the decades as this assortment displays much nicer than similar shoebox collections. Highlights include 1960 Topps: #158 Yastrzemski RC (EX); 1965 Topps: (2) #134 Mantle WS (one EX-MT, one FR, tape), #350 Mantle (FR, tape); 1966 Topps: #50 Mantle (VG-EX), (4) #100 Koufax (average EX-MT); 1967 Topps: (3) #250 Aaron ((2) EX-MT, VG) and 1968 Topps: #50 Mays (EX).
