I bought this set along with a 1965(a grade lower than this one), 1973 high grade and 1975 Topps high grade set a few weeks ago. I am considering keeping this in my personal collection. However, it is so nice it probably deserves a home that will truly appreciate it. This is a hand collated set from decades ago. I have yet to find a card with a wax stain on it.  I started to upgrade a few of the cards I felt were a little below the rest of the set. However, the PSA 7's and 8 I bought for the set are no better than the ones I thought were a grade below the set . The point is this set is really a high quality set with some MINT cards, NM-MT cards, NR-MT cards and some that are EX-MT with less than 2% below EX-MT.

I would say the conservative breakdown of the set is

NM-MT or better 25% (PSA 8 quality cards or better)

NRMT or better 60% (PSA 7 quality cards or better)

EXMT cards 14% (PSA 6 quality cards or better)

Less than EXMT   1%

I will underpromise and over deliver when it comes to the grading of this set. This set is the nicest 1968 Topps set I have ever seen in person.  There are alot of commons/semi-stars that are MINT in my eyes. I took pictures of a few of the commons just to show you the quality of the set. The set has very few cards that need to be upgraded to be a NRMT/NM-MT set.

Here is a breakdown of some of the stars.

 

Mickey Mantle- NRMT card with the two back top corners with a hint of white.

Billy Williams NM-MT

Carl Yastrzemski- NM-MT or better with sharp corners and just slightly O/C left to right.

Hoyt Wilhelm- PSA 8 with no qualifers and near perfect centering

Hank Aaron- EX-MT

Ernie Banks PSA 7 with no qualifers

Willie Mays PSA 7 with no qualifers

Nolan Ryan Rookie EX-MT  due to corner wear and centering/tilt

Johnny Bench Rookie- NRMT

Willie Stargell PSA 8 NM-MT with no qualifers

Roberto Clemente has a surface wrinkle near his name so is one of the cards that is less than EX-MT

Bob Gibson PSA 7 with No qualifers

Bill Mazeroski- NM-MT or better

Pete Rose- EX-MT

Tom Seaver-NRMT and centered

Gil Hodges NM-MT or better and centered

Orlando Cepada-NM-MT and centered

Brooks Robinson NRMT+/NM-MT

Rod Carew NM-MT due to cenering t/b

Al Kaline NM-MT due to centering l/r

Don Drysdale NRMT or better

 

You can view the set in person if you are in the Middle Tennessee area. We will be happy to set up a meeting for you to take a look at the entire set in person.
