The year alone carries historical significance in the baseball world. On October 1, 1961, Roger Maris clouted number 61* breaking the Babe's beloved all-time single-season homerun mark by one. The added bonus was that Maris also claimed the second of his back-to-back MVP's. This wonderful 587-card Topps complete set allows any collector to remember the participants from all of the teams from that unforgetable season. This particular set is offered in solid middle to upper middle grade condition. The set is about 95% crease-free and most of the corners have survived better than you would expect. Varying degrees of centering flaws is the most common detraction from the otherwise eye appealing lot. The key cards are as follows: #2 Maris (EX+), 141 B. Williams (EX), 150 Mays (EX-MT), 290 Musial (EX), 300 Mantle (SGC 60 EX 5), 307 Mantle WS (EX), 344 Koufax (EX), 388 Clemente (EX-MT), 405 Gehrig Streak (EX), Mantle HR (VG-EX), 415 Aaron (VG), 417 Marichal (EX), 475 Mantle MVP (NM evid trim), 576 Maris AS (EX-MT), 577 Aaron AS (EX-MT), 578 Mantle AS (EX+). Balance of set (#s 1-522) grades 70% EX or better, 30% VG to VG-EX. High numbers (523-578): about 45% show centering flaws, however overall they grade 65% EX or better and 35% VG to VG-EX.
