The 1957 Topps set has always been very popular with collectors due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is a very sharp-looking near-set, mostly in fairly high grade, saved by an old-time collector who was active in the early 1990s but not in recent years. In his active days, there was no grading. He just dug these out of his closet and got an impressive selection graded on his own. This is a nice set! The equivalent SMR value for just 41 of the 51 graded cards (not including the Vg-Ex 4s with Williams, Vg 3s, several "Authentic" cards including Mantle, and 348 ungraded cards) is $2,559. Total 399 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
