1957 Topps Complete Set Minus 1 (406/407)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $6,462.50
Complete high-grade set (missing just #240 Bauer) of 1957 Topps cards. 20% Nr/Mt or better, 75% Ex to Ex-Mt, 5% Vg-Ex (includes a few lesser). 1957 Topps have always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is a particularly sharp-looking and mostly very high-grade complete set. These cards have been in a closet for fifty years. The gentleman who consigned these cards actually bought them in 1957! He is a still to this day a very active collector. We have submitted eight cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 T. Williams (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 2 Berra (PSA EX 5), 7 Aparicio (Ex-Mt), 10 Mays (PSA NM 7), 15 Roberts (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 18 Drysdale RC (75/25 T/B, otherwise Ex), 20 Aaron (PSA NM 7), 24 Mazeroski (65/35 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 25 Ford (Ex-Mt), 30 Reese (Ex), 35 F. Robinson RC (PSA NM 7), 38 Fox (Ex-Mt), 40 Wynn (Ex), 55 Banks (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 62 Martin (Ex), 70 Ashburn (20/80 L/R and 70/30 T/B, otherwise Vg-Ex), 76 Clemente (PSA EX-MT 6), 80 Hodges (Ex), 82 Howard (Vg-Ex), 85 Doby (Vg-Ex), 90 Spahn (Ex), 95 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6, bright and crisp with a Nr/Mt appearance, downgraded due to the 30/70 L/R centering), 97 Yankees Team (Ex/Ex-Mt), 125 Kaline (75/25 L/R, otherwise Ex), 165 Kluszewski (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 170 Snider (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 210 Campanella (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex), 212 Colavito RC (Ex/Ex-Mt), 250 Mathews (Ex), 286 Richardson RC (Ex), 302 Koufax (75/25 L/R, otherwise Ex), 312 Kubek RC (tear on the right edge, otherwise Ex), 324 Dodgers Team (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 328 B. Robinson RC (Vg-Ex), 338 Bunning RC (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (PSA VG-EX+ 4.5, tiny surface wrinkle visible through the card number on the reverse, otherwise Ex-Mt), and 407 Mantle/Berra (PSA EX 5). Also included with the set is one contest card (Ex). The few centering problems on a few of the key cards do not represent the centering of the balance of the set. This is a very high quality, original-owner complete set (minus one card) of 1957 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball card sets. The SMR value for just seven of the PSA graded cards (not including the PSA VG-EX+ 4.5 and the 398 ungraded cards) is $1,775. Total 407 cards (near set of 406 plus one contest card). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $6,462.50
