565 of 587 Nr Set TOPPS BASEBALLVG-Nr-Mt SHARP 1964

ALL KEY CARDS PRESENT MANTLE ROSE MAYS JOHN RC etc

I've worked on this set for the past twenty years, starting with a fairly rough group of cards, slowly culling and replacing with sharper cards, particularly the keys. All key cards are present, many quite sharp and clean. Mickey Mantle card has a gorgeous front, great gloss, back is a bit faded. Tommy John RC is fabulous, perfect centering, certainly Nr Mt if not better, you may want to have it graded. Sandy Koufax, Yankees Team, Frank Robinson, Yaz, Don Drysdale, Al Kaline, Tops in NL Mays/Aaron, etc, all very sharp, Ex+ to Ex-Mt to Near Mint or better. Pete Rose second year has no creases but has a couple of pock marks and a bad corner. Brock Berra Gibson Niekro RC VG. Aaron Mays Stargell each have one tiny surface crease, VG. Roger Maris is a beauty to the eye but has a corner crease
Hubbs is low-grade, as are a couple of other keys,
but you have several real sharp keys,
overall a great collection, many Ex-Mt to Nr Mt or beter commons,
just a handful in this set have rubbed backs,
#1 and #587 are very sharp
None of the missing 22 cards are hard to find, with Dodgers team card and Bob Uecker the most expensive.
It will be easy and fun for the winning bidder to finish this set and keep
