1957-58 Topps Basketball Complete Set (80)

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $2,300.00

57% range from Vg-Ex/Ex to Ex, 38% Vg-Ex, 5% lesser. Keys: #1 Clifton RC (Gd), 5 Sharman RC (Vg-Ex/Ex), 10 Arizin RC (Vg-Ex/Ex), 15 Ramsey RC (Vg-Ex/Ex), 17 Cousy RC (Vg-Ex/Ex, no creases, just a little corner wear, centered 75/25 L/R), 19 Heinsohn RC (85/15 T/B otherwise Vg-Ex), 24 Pettit RC (Ex), 28 Mikkelsen RC (Vg-Ex), 32 Kerr RC (10/90 T/B otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), 37 Hagan RC (Ex), 42 Stokes RC (Ex), 43 Hundley RC (10/90 L/R otherwise Ex), 71 Twyman RC (Ex), 77 Russell RC (tiny touch of surface paper loss at the top of head, otherwise Ex-Mt), 78 Lovellette RC (Vg-Ex), 80 Schnittker RC (10/90 T/B otherwise Vg-Ex). This is Topps' first basketball set, and the only basketball set they issued during the 1950s. It apparently did not sell well as Topps did not follow up with another basketball set until 1969. The set includes the rookie cards of all of the major stars of the era. 1957 Topps Basketball is well known for production quality issues, making the assembling of high-quality sets particularly challenging. This is a very respectable complete set of this significant basketball issue. Total 80 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,300.00
