Seven years after Bowman used the wood-bordered design, Topps opted to give it a whirl. The 1962 set of 598 cards were certainly not designed with the collector in mind, as today this is classified as a condition sensitive set. Amazingly, the offered collection has survived in much better condition than most of the 1962 sets you find, as the majority of these cards show little corner or edge wear and on the whole, the set is virtually crease-free. There are five cards that have been graded and six tougher variation cards. The keys break down as follows: #1 Roger Maris (EX-MT), 5 Koufax PSA NM 7, 10 Clemente (NM), 18 Mantle/Mays (EX-MT), 50 Musial SGC 86 NM+ 7.5, 53 AL HR LDRS PSA NM 7, 200 Mantle (EX+), 300 Mays (EX-MT), 320 Aaron SGC 86 NM+ 7.5, 387 Brock EX-MT, 425 Yastrzemski PSA NM-MT 8 (oc), 471 Mantle AS (EX-MT), 594 Uecker (VG-EX). The balance of the set (#s 1-522) is 60% EX-MT or better, 30% EX and 10% lesser. The high numbers (#523-598) average a little lesser than the rest of the set, but still an overall EX grouping.
