1952 Topps Autographed Set (319 of 407)

Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $9,860.00

1952 Topps collection of 319 different autographed cards of the 407 cards in the set. Includes thirty-nine of the ninety-seven rare high numbers. To many, 1952 Topps is the ultimate postwar baseball card set. A completely autographed set is unheard of, but if ever assembled would certainly be considered by many as the ultimate autographed baseball card set. The offered collection is eighty-eight cards shy of being a complete set. The missing numbers are 1 Pafko, 9, 14, 28, 37 Snider, 39, 46, 47, 48, 61, 78, 87, 93, 135, 137, 145, 152, 154, 164, 181, 188, 209, 210, 217, 231, 252, 253, 283, 285, 294, 311 Mantle, 312 Robinson, 314 Campanella, 317, 318, 319, 322, 323, 325, 328, 329, 331, 333 Reese, 336, 339, 340, 341, 344, 345, 346, 347, 348, 349, 350, 358, 359, 360, 363, 365, 366, 367, 368, 371, 372, 373, 374, 376, 377, 378, 379, 380, 381, 382, 383, 386, 387, 388, 391, 393, 395, 397, 398, 400 Dickey, 401, 403, 404, 406, and 407 Mathews.
