DiMaggio, 159, 208. Three EX+ 70: #244 Mays, 266, 269. One EX 60: #263 Podres RC. This set has been assembled with great care and dedication over a period of many years, with concern for all factors, and with special consideration to centering. The uncompromising emphasis on centering makes this set even more impressive than suggested by its across-the-board high grades, and is evident throughout. The flush-to-the-bottom-border design of the 1953 Topps set makes this issue particularly susceptible to edge and corner wear, and makes the assembly of high-grade sets all the more difficult. This is an exceptionally sharp and spectacularly attractive high-grade set of 1953 Topps, one of the finest sets we have ever seen assembled or offered of this classic Topps issue. The total SMR value for the individual cards is $18,164. Total 274 cards (202 PSA and 72 SGC). Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$20,000. SOLD FOR $13,920.00
