1957-1958 Topps Basketball Complete Set PSA-Graded (80)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,527.50

Complete set of 1957-1958 Topps Basketball, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is Topps' first basketball set, and the only basketball set they issued during the 1950s. It apparently did not sell well as Topps did not follow up with another basketball set until 1969. The set includes the rookie cards of all of the major stars of the era. The PSA grades are as follows: One NM 7: #80 Schnittker RC (OC). Two EX-MT 6: #27 and 35. One EX 5: #12. Forty-three VG-EX 4: #4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Arizin RC, 11, 13, 14, 20, 21, 24 Pettit RC, 25, 26, 29, 30, 31, 32 Kerr RC, 33, 34, 36, 37 Hagan RC, 40, 41, 42 Stokes RC, 43 Hundley RC, 44, 46, 47, 48, 49, 52, 54, 55, 56, 60, 61, 64, 65, 67, 69, 72, and 77 Russell RC. Twenty-three VG 3: #2, 3, 5 Sharman RC, 15 Ramsey RC, 16, 17 Cousy RC, 23, 28 Mikkelsen RC, 38, 39, 45, 50, 53, 59, 62, 63, 66, 68, 70, 74, 75, 76, and 79. Ten GOOD 2: #1 Clifton RC, 18, 19 Heinsohn RC, 22, 51, 57, 58, 71 Twyman RC, 73, and 78 Lovellette RC. 1957 Topps Basketball is well known for production quality issues, making the assembling of high-quality sets particularly challenging. This is a solid low- to mid-grade complete set of this significant basketball issue, with all eighty cards encapsulated and graded by PSA. Total 80 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,527.50
