Default 1962 Post Canadian Complete Set

Does anyone recall of a complete set ever coming to auction or any of the tougher shortprints coming up for sale recently.
Sorry, my question marks dont seem to be working.

Thanks

Jim,

I am assuming you are talking about the baseball set. There has not been a set offered that I know of in recent years. There have been a couple of the short prints offered last year on Ebay. They were not in very good shape and went for stupid money.

If you don't mind me asking, what are the short prints?

Here is a very informative thread from a few years ago. There are quite a few shortprints but a small handful are really tough.

When you say a "complete" set do you mean a set with all variations (a master set) or just a set of 200 cards?

Either way, I have not seen many of the singles, much less the SPs or a complete (or near) complete set come up for auction or sale. I have worked on this set for several years, w/o collecting any of the variations, and have only 117/200. Besides the 71 OPC set, one of the tougher "regular" issue, non-test sets I have worked on as far as availability.

Good question. Full set of 200 with all the shortprints.
I actually have 202, with the Whitey Ford and a Mantle variation. I would have to go through the rest of the cards with variations to see which version I have.
Was thinking about selling and I could not find much sales data.

I agree not much data....not sure how you were looking to sell. The BST here would be one place to start. As tough as some of the SPs from this set can be to find, a complete set is even harder to find. You may want to consider consigning it to a reputable AH.

Default Set Recap

I have 169 of 200 for my set. For the Master set I have:

Ford - Yankees/Dodgers
Arroyo - Both
Colavito - Both
Koufax - Walks/Wazks

Dan Mabey's books have very helpful.

I do not have the book. Interesting that the koufax variation isn't better documented. The correct version seems much tougher than Ford, Yankees.
