VG - 3

This is a 1961 Topps New York Yankees Near Team Set. We design the Near Complete Team Sets using the majority of cards for that team and leaving out the costly cards. While we will occasionally omit some expensive super-star rookie cards, most of the removed cards are the expensive high numbers, short-prints, and multi-player rookie cards, which add little benefit to the team set collector. The other cards can then be added, from our inventory of over a million cards, as your budget allows. A complete 1961 Topps Yankees team set would cost over $2000 dollars. That said, we've removed duplicates of star cards from this set, as well as the World Series Cards and High Numbers in order to keep the cost of this set down. The missing cards include: #300 Mantle, #371 Bill Skowron, #401 Babe Ruth 60th Homer, #402 Don Larsen Pitches Perfect Game, #405 Gehrig Benched after 2130 Games, #425 Berra, #472 Yogi Berra MVP, #475 Mickey Mantle MVP, #478 Roger Maris MVP, #531 Jim Coates, #540 Jackie Jenson, #541 Roland Sheldon, #563 Bob Cerv, #568 Bill Skowron, #576 Roger Maris,#578 Mantle and #586 Ford.
