1952 Topps #407 Ed Mathews PSA EX-MT 6
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,819
Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. In addition to being his rookie card, 1952 Topps card #407 Eddie Mathews is also one of only a few key Hall of Famers in the rare high-number series, and as the last card in the set, is a condition rarity. Just as card #1 Pafko was subject to wear due to gravitating to the top of the pile, #407 Mathews was also subject to excessive wear at the bottom of the pile. In anything even resembling high grade, this has always been a very difficult card for anyone putting together a quality 1952 Topps set. The image on the front of the offered #407 Mathews is centered to the left (approximately 30/70), which is usually the case with this card, with original gloss, brilliant colors, and four sharp corners. The reverse of the card is perfectly clean. This is an exceptional example, which has been downgraded by PSA solely for being off-center left to right, and is otherwise in strong Near Mint condition. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $3,819
