1962 Topps Baseball Complete "Green Tint" Master Set - 690 Cards

Year 1962
Manufacturer Topps

EX/MT - 6

Not many collectors can brag that they own the 690 card 1962 Topps Complete "Green Tint" Master Set, with all variation cards. 

The way that the 1962 Topps Baseball Card Master Set came to be was that in the spring of 1962, the sales of the 2nd Series of cards exceeded expectations and Topps decided that they would like to have another run of the 2nd Series cards printed. 

By that time the printer that Topps used was already working on 3rd Series of cards, the folks at Topps decided to contract with another printing company to produce more of the 1962 Series 2 cards.  So, Topps packed up the printing plates and shipped them to the new printer.  

Two things went wrong.  Several of the printing plated were damaged in transit and had to be replaced, creating some nice variation cards.  Additionally, many of the cards were a bit blurry and had a "Green Tint" to them.  Thus the greatest Topps Variation Set of the 1960s was born!



Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $12,243.30.
