1954 Topps Complete Set (250)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $3,818.75
95% range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex overall), and 5% are Vg. This is the type of vintage set that many collectors consider the very best value. The cards are classic, they look great, and even though they are in fairly high grade (this is a nice-looking set), they do not cost a fortune compared to higher-grade cards. In many cases, in the highest grades, a few commons from an early 1950s set can currently be valued by the market at more than an entire set such as this; and when it comes time to sell, a set such as this will actually generate far more interest from collectors as well, precisely because they are more affordable. Five cards have been graded by PSA and two cards have been graded by Beckett. Keys: #1 Williams (Beckett EX 5), 10 Robinson (Vg), 13 Martin (Vg), 17 Rizzuto (Ex), 20 Spahn (PSA EX 5), 30 Mathews (Ex), 32 Snider (PSA EX 5), 36 Wilhelm (75/25 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 37 Ford (Ex), 45 Ashburn (Vg-Ex), 50 Berra (possible slight trim, otherwise Ex), 70 Doby (Vg-Ex), 90 Mays (Ex), 94 Banks RC (PSA NM 7 [OC], 30/70 L/R), 102 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 128 Aaron (Beckett EX+ 5.5), 132 Lasorda RC (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 201 Kaline RC (PSA EX-MT 6), 239 Skowron RC (Ex), and 250 Williams (PSA EX-MT 6). A very attractive, medium-grade complete set of this classic, early 1950s Topps issue. Total 250 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
