Lot # 1659 (of 1673)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1952-1957 Non-Sport TV, Music, & Radio Complete Set Collection (4 sets, 300 cards)

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,997.50

Collection of four complete Topps and Bowman non-sports sets, all related to entertainment (radio, television, movies, music) from the early 1950s. These are very sharp, crisp sets. Even those cards technically graded lower than Ex-Mt are very clean and attractive, and at a glance appear to be much stronger than the technically accurate assigned grades. It would be hard not to like these sets. 1) 1952 Bowman "Television & Radio Stars of NBC" Complete Set (36): 67% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt, 33% Vg. 2) 1953 Bowman "Television & Radio Stars of the National Broadcasting Company" Complete Set (96): 10% Nr/Mt-Mt, 70% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 20% slightly lesser. 3) 1953 Topps "Who-Z-At Star" Complete Set (80): 80% range from Vg-Ex to Ex (with a few better), 20% Vg. 4) 1957 Topps "Hit Stars" Complete Set (88): 90% range from Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 10% slightly lesser. This is an impressive collection of four 1950s non-sport sets (that are actually rarer than baseball cards from the era, but receive far less attention) featuring the most popular entertainers of the 1950s. Total 4 complete sets (300 cards). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
