1956 Topps Complete PSA EX-MT 6 Graded Set (340 plus 2 Checklist)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00 , Sold For - $7,637.50
The 1956 Topps set has always been one of the most popular sets of the 1950s. Issued in the heart of the decade, the 1956 Topps set includes everyone from Aaron to Williams, all in brilliant, stunning color, and in an exciting horizontal format. Presented is an exceptional complete set of this classic issue. All of the 342 cards in this complete set (#1-340 plus two checklists) have been graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. As any collector of high-grade early 1950s cards knows, assembling a complete set of any 1950s vintage issue all in the exact same grade is extremely challenging. When a quality 1950s set such as this, entirely in such a strong grade, is assembled and sold as a single unit, it's hard for buyers to appreciate the countless hours that had to be invested to accomplish the feat. The fact that the grade in which this set was assembled (PSA 6 EX-MT) represents such an exceptional value compared to a higher or lower graded set makes this set particularly desirable. A set like this doesn't come together easily, especially in a value-oriented grade. Currently complete sets often bring no premium at all for the work of assembly, and sometimes actually sell for a discount compared to the sum of their parts. We can see this changing in the years to come. The assembly of a set of this high quality and unrivaled consistency is the result of a tremendous amount of time, effort, and patience. This is a magnificent 1956 Topps set. All 340 cards are graded PSA EX-MT 6: including #1 Harridge, 5 Williams, 10 Spahn, 15 Banks, 20 Kaline, 30 Robinson, 31 Aaron, 33 Clemente, 79 Koufax, 101 Campanella, 107 Mathews, 110 Berra, 113 Rizzuto, 120 Ashburn, 130 Mays, 135 Mantle, 145 Hodges, 150 Snider, 164 Killebrew, 166 Dodgers, 181 Martin, 200 Feller, 240 Ford, 251 Yankees, 260 Reese, 292 Aparicio RC. Included with the set are both unnumbered checklist cards: #1/3 Checklist and #2/4 Checklist. This complete set was assembled one card at a time by a very dedicated condition-conscious collector over a period of many years, with a concern for all factors, but with a special consideration to overall eye appeal. This is an extremely attractive high-grade complete set of this classic early Topps issue. The total SMR value for the individual cards exceeds $10,000. Total 342 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $7,637.50
