Lot # 704 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1954 Topps Complete Set (250)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,700

80% range from Ex to Ex-Mt (includes some Nr/Mt), 20% ranging from Vg to Vg-Ex/Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). This set is highlighted by a magnificent example of Hank Aaron's rookie card graded NM 84 by SGC. We have selected the Aaron rookie and five additional key cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Williams (EX 60), 10 Robinson (EX 60), 13 Martin (Ex), 17 Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), 20 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 32 Snider (Ex-Mt), 36 Wilhelm (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 37 Ford (Ex-Mt), 45 Ashburn (Ex-Mt), 50 Berra (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 70 Doby (Ex-Mt), 90 Mays (slight trim along the top border, otherwise Nr/Mt), 94 Banks RC (slight miscut along the top border, otherwise Nr/Mt), 102 Hodges (Ex), 128 Aaron (NM 84), 132 Lasorda RC (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 201 Kaline (EX 60), 239 Skowron RC (Gd-Vg), and 250 Williams (color touch-ups on the reverse, otherwise Vg-Ex). This is an extremely consistent and surprisingly high grade complete set of this early 1950s classic, far better than we usually see, with tremendous eye-appeal throughout. The set technically ranges from medium to high grade, but has an overall presentation of a much more expensive and higher-grade set. This set was saved by an old-time collector and has not seen the light of day for many years. Early sets in this grade are especially desirable, representing the most solid and least volatile value in the world of vintage cards. The equivalent SMR value for just four of the six graded cards (not including the two SGC Authentics and 244 ungraded cards) is $2,190. Total 250 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,700
