1959 Topps Complete Set: #11 PSA Set Registry

Starting Bid - $10,000.00, Sold For - $38,187.50

Presented is an extraordinary ultra high-grade complete set of 1959 Topps cards. This is by far the finest set of this popular issue we have ever offered. All 572 cards have been encapsulated and graded by PSA. Included are twenty-eight MINT 9s, 511 NM-MT 8s, and thirty-three NM 7s. This set is registered as the eleventh highest-graded set on the “PSA set registry” with an average grade of 7.96. This classic set features all the stars of the era, but in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again in special multiplayer cards or in the All-Star series in the scarce high-number series (#507-572). The PSA grades are as follows: Twenty-Eight MINT 9: #48, 57, 83, 122, 133, 184, 215, 230, 235, 306, 361, 376, 382, 398, 402, 404, 406, 407, 417, 418, 420 Colavito, 424, 426, 434, 436, 438, 439 B.

This set has been assembled with great care and an uncompromising commitment to quality over a period of many years, with a concern for all factors, but with a special consideration to centering. The emphasis on centering makes this set even more spectacular than suggested by its extraordinary high grade, and is evident throughout the entire set. A review of the incredible composition of this set by grade emphasizes the extraordinary collecting achievement that is represented by this set. This is without question one of the finest 1959 Topps sets ever assembled in the history of collecting. The total SMR value for the individual cards is $33,265. Total 572 cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $20,000+. SOLD FOR $38,187.50
