1964 Topps Stand-Up HIGH GRADE Complete Set with (18) PSA Graded!
One of the more unique sets ever produced by Topps used the die cut design (similar to the 1951 All-Stars), where the card was intended to be “punched out” at the perforation and the player body was meant to stand up on the green base. Colorful and full of all the major stars of the day, this set also included 22 Single Prints, which over the decades high-grade examples have proved to be a nightmare for collectors. This offering is very high-grade, appearing vending quality, and likely derives from the original 1970s Bruce Yeko find of these ultra-popular cards.
This is a fresh to the hobby set of cards, which was tucked away in a private collection for at least 40 years. A total of 18 cards (submitted by Leland's) have been graded by PSA, and as PSA tends to grade with a very critical eye, we feel there are resubmission opportunities and plenty of high grade cards still worthy of third-party grading, especially the Single Prints.
Includes: Graded Cards - PSA MINT 9: 1 card, Roebuck (SP). PSA NM-MT 8: 11 cards w/Aaron, Battey, Clemente, Drysdale (SP), Elston Howard, Al Jackson, Kaline, Koufax, Pearson (SP), Billy Williams (SP) and Woodeschick (SP). PSA NM+ 7.5: 3 cards w/Norm Cash (SP), Mantle and McCovey (SP). PSA NM 7: 3 cards w/Baldschun (SP), Spahn (SP) and Yastrzemski (SP).
