1957-1962 Topps Partial Set Collection (6 Sets, 2,296 Cards)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,350

Collection of six partially complete Topps sets from the following years: 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, and 1962. These cards were personally collected as a youngster by our consignor and have been carefully saved all these years! This collection is missing some stars and many commons but, as can be seen, many highlights are included, and they could serve as a strong foundation for the assembly of a complete run of Topps sets from the late 1950s and early 1960s. 1) 1957 Topps (202 of 407 cards): Consists of commons and minor stars. Condition ranges from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (with a few slightly lesser). 2) 1958 Topps (377 of 494 cards): Consists of commons and minor stars.
