1957 Topps Complete Set Minus Two (405/407)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $7,050
Complete high-grade set (missing just #302 Koufax and and 328 Robinson) of 1957 Topps cards. 50% Nr/Mt or better, 25% Ex-Mt, 20% Ex, 5% slightly lesser. 1957 Topps cards have always been very popular due to their classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is a particularly sharp-looking and mostly very high-grade complete set. This set (less two cards) was assembled in the 1970s by an old-time collector and has remained untouched in a closet for the past thirty years. We have submitted three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (Vg), 2 Berra (Ex-Mt), 7 Aparicio (Ex-Mt), 10 Mays (SGC EX/NM 80), 15 Roberts (Nr/Mt), 18 Drysdale RC (80/20 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex), 20 Aaron (Vg), 24 Mazeroski (Ex-Mt), 25 Ford (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex), 30 Reese (75/25 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex), 35 F. Robinson RC (Ex-Mt), 38 Fox (Ex-Mt), 40 Wynn (Ex-Mt), 55 Banks (Ex-Mt), 62 Martin (Ex-Mt), 70 Ashburn (Ex-Mt), 76 Clemente (SGC NM/MT 88), 80 Hodges (Vg), 85 Doby (80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 90 Spahn (Ex), 95 Mantle (trimmed), 97 Yankees Team (Ex), 125 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 165 Kluszewski (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 170 Snider (Vg-Ex), 210 Campanella (Ex-Mt), 212 Colavito RC (Ex), 215 Slaughter (Ex), 250 Mathews (miscut along the bottom, otherwise Vg), 286 Richardson RC (Nr/Mt), 312 Kubek RC (Nr/Mt), 324 Dodgers Team (trimmed), 338 Bunning RC (Nr/Mt), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (25/75 L/R and 75/25 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), and 407 Mantle/Berra (SGC EX 60). Also included with the set are one checklist card 1/2 series (partially checked in pencil, otherwise Vg) and one contest card (Vg). This is a very high quality complete set (minus two cards) of 1957 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball card sets. Total 407 cards (near set of 405 plus one checklist and one contest card). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $7,050
