There are a couple near complete auto'd sets on the 'bay right now.

My son and I are working on this set signed and currently have 50 of 60 cards. We'll prolly pick up a couple more, but will most likely never finish it. The signed Clemente card brings quite the premium as only a handful are known to exist.

Thanks Kevin for posting that link. I wasn't sure how to do it when I'm not on my computer.

I almost completed the set from those packs at Dodger Stadium...I think it was either 1971 or 72. Took me until the early 80's (remember, this was pre-internet) to find a local card shop that had the Mays and the Koufax (in vg condition but nowhere near as nice as the others). Found both later in NM at the National and upgraded. Still love that set.

I always thought that THIS was the set that was meant to get autographed. Plenty of room for some nice, bold signatures. Good luck with your quest!

I've got a friend that has a complete auto'd set, matted and framed. Hopefully he'll post it or allow me to.
Clemente is expensive, Dick Farrell is the really tough one. He left the US in 1971, and eventually ended up in England, working on oil rigs in the North Sea, and was killed in a car crash in 1977.

At shows in the LA area in the early '70's Will Davis always had a table full of '64 Giants, we suspected that he was the source for the Dodger Stadium supply, which was sold thru at least '77.

BTW, the full press sheet debunks the myth of short prints in this set. There were 49 cards printed once, 10 cards double printed, and Mantle triple printed, for a total of 72 on a standard Topps press sheet. This lines up with the Dodger Stadium envelopes, we had tons of Mantles, and plenty of Koufax, Causey, Stuart, Friend,Mays, etc all cited as short prints.

One of the best ideas Topps ever had. Nice, big clear pics of the stars of the day. I love this set.

And it's really easy to put together, a great way to add affordable superstars to your collection.

Anthony is always debunking something.

Thanks for posting the sheet. See you next month

Sorry, the numbers don't jive. That would be 69 distinct cards and 82 total. Without checking the sheet and counting, I would guess you meant 49 (SP), 10 (DP), and 1 (TP)?
