The low numbers (#1-310) grade as follows: 77% range from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), and 23% range from Fr-Gd to Vg (averaging G-Vg). The high numbers (#311-407) grade as follows: 70% range from Vg-Ex to Ex, 30% range from Fr-Gd to Vg (averaging G-Vg). We have selected eleven cards to be graded and encapulated by PSA.

The amazing thing about a quality mid-grade 1952 Topps set such as this is the outstanding value it offers compared to cards in higher grade, as well as the comfort provided by the natural potential "break value" associated with such a set. This is a rarely offered, very pleasing mixed-grade complete set of one of baseball card collecting's premier issues, including a very attractive example of Mickey Mantle's rookie card. Total 407 cards.Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$15,000. SOLD FOR $20,880.00
