Presented is a remarkable, essentially as-issued example of what is arguably Topps’ most attractive baseball issue of the 1960s, the colorful 1965 set that combines noticeably enhanced photography with an almost-uniformly color-coded graphic design for a dramatic and striking presentation. The offered set is in sparkling Near-Mint to Near-Mint to Mint condition, with five dozen slabbed cards offering a nice glimpse into the broader condition range. With 14 PSA 9 Mint cards, 32 PSA 8 Near-Mint to Mint cards, four PSA 7 Near-Mint and six PSA 6 EX-Near-Mint cards, the remarkable, pristine nature of this accumulation becomes evident. Most of these singles are seemingly uncirculated cards, with blazing, vivid colors and superb gloss and generally excellent centering. The blazing example features several lengthy stretches of apparently untouched cards appearing through all seven series, even in the high numbers. Here’s the breakdown of the slabbed cards (60) – No. 16 Morgan RC – PSA 6, No. 19 – PSA 8, No. 29 – PSA 8, No. 33 – PSA 9, No. 49 – PSA 9, No. 74 – PSA 8, No. 81 – PSA 8, No. 110 Santo – PSA 8, No. 116 – PSA 8, No. 134 Mantle WS Homer – PSA 6, No. 153 – PSA 8, No. 155 Maris – PSA 7, No. 160 Clemente – PSA 6, No. 168 – PSA 8, No. 170 Aaron – PSA 7, No. 173 Tigers Team – PSA 9, No. 176 McCovey – PSA 8, No. 200 Torre – PSA 8, No. 212 – PSA 8, No. 249 – PSA 9, No. 250 Mays – PSA 6, No. 260 Drysdale – PSA 7, No. 267 Senators Team – PSA 8, No. 271 – PSA 9, No. 282 Murakami Rookie – PSA 7, No. 300 Koufax – PSA 7 o/c, No. 308 – PSA 8, No. 310 – PSA 8, No. 311 – PSA 6, No. 314 – PSA 9, No. 316 Reds Team – PSA 8, No. 350 Mantle – PSA 6, No. 359 – PSA 8, No. 368 – PSA 8, No. 391 – PSA 9, No. 403 Red Sox Team – PSA 8, No. 424 – PSA 8, No. 431 – PSA 8, No. 453 – PSA 8, No. 454 – PSA 8, No. 461 Niekro – PSA 6, No. 477 Carlton RC – PSA 6, No. 481 Indians Team – PSA 9, No. 498 – PSA 8, No. 501 – PSA 8, No. 506 – PSA 9, No. 509 – PSA 9, No. 513 Yankees Team – PSA 8, No. 526 Hunter RC – PSA 6, No. 532 – PSA 8, No. 537 – PSA 8, No. 540 Brock – PSA 8, No. 541 – PSA 9, No. 545 – PSA 9, No. 546 – PSA 8, No. 552 – PSA 8, No. 561 – PSA 8 and No. 598 Downing – PSA 8; Breakdown of raw cards: No. 1 League Leaders – Near-Mint, 2 League Leaders – Nr-Mt-Plus, 3 League Leaders – Nr-Mt, 5 League Leaders – Nr-Mt to Mt, 6 League Leaders – Nr-Mt-Plus, 8 League Leaders – Nr-Mt to Mt, 15 Roberts – Nr-Mt to Mt, 20 Bunning – Nr-Mt-Plus, 24 Twins Team – Nr-Mt to Mt, 50 Marichal – Nr-Mt, 55 Conigliaro – Nr-Mt, 79 Checklist – Nr-Mt-Plus, 104 Checklist – Nr-Mt to Mt, 120 Frank Robinson – Nr-Mt, 126 Dodgers Team – VG-Ex, 130 Kaline – Nr-Mt, 138 World Series Gibson – Nr-Mt, 150 Brooks Robinson – Nr-Mt-Plus, 189 Checklist – Nr-Mt to Mt, 193 Perry – Nr-Mt to Mt, 205 Spahn – Nr-Mt to Mt, 207 Rose – VG, 220 Williams – Nr-Mt, 273 Checklist – Nr-Mt, 276 Wilhelm – Nr-Mt to Mt, 320 Gibson – Nr-Mt, 350 Mantle – Nr-Mt, 360 Cepeda – Nr-Mt-Plus, 361 Checklist – Nr-Mt-Plus, 377 Stargell – Nr-Mt-Plus, 400 Killebrew – Nr-Mt-Plus, 410 Aparicio – Nr-Mt to Mt, 443 Checklist – Nr-Mt-Plus, 485 Fox – Nr-Mt to Mt o/c, 500 Mathews – Nr-Mt-Plus, 508 Checklist – Nr-Mt-Plus, 519 Uecker – Nr-Mt-Plus, 551 Mets Team – Nr-Mt-Plus, 556 Schoendienst – Nr-Mt-Plus.
