1956 Topps Complete PSA EX-MT 6 Graded Master Complete Set Including All Twelve Team Variations and Both Checklists (354 cards)
Starting Bid - $2,000.00 , Sold For - $9,400.00
The 1956 Topps set has always been one of the most popular sets of the 1950s. Issued in the heart of the decade, the 1956 Topps set includes everyone from Aaron to Williams, all in brilliant, stunning color, and in an exciting horizontal design. Presented is one of the finest master sets of this classic issue ever assembled. All of the 354 cards in this complete master set have been graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. As any collector of high grade early 1950s cards knows, assembling a complete set of any 1950s vintage issue all in the exact same grade is a daunting challenge, and this is even more the case with 1956 Topps than with many other 1950s issues. The assembly of a set of this high quality and unrivaled consistency is the result of a tremendous amount of time, effort, and patience. Many 1956 Topps cards are particularly challenging to find in high grade, especially due to print lines and centering issues. This is a spectacular set and an extraordinary collecting achievement. All 354 cards are graded PSA EX-MT 6: including #1 Harridge, 5 Williams, 10 Spahn, 15 Banks, 20 Kaline, 30 Robinson, 31 Aaron, 33 Clemente, 79 Koufax, 101 Campanella, 107 Mathews, 110 Berra, 113 Rizzuto, 120 Ashburn, 130 Mays, 135 Mantle, 145 Hodges, 150 Snider, 164 Killebrew, 166 Dodgers, 181 Martin, 200 Feller, 240 Ford, 251 Yankees, 260 Reese, 292 Aparicio RC. Included with the set are both unnumbered checklist cards: #1/3 Checklist, #2/4 Checklist, six "dated" team card variations (Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia), and six "no date, name on left" team card variations (Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia). This master set was assembled one card at a time by a very dedicated condition-conscious collector over a period of many years, with a concern for all factors, but with a special consideration to overall eye appeal. This is an extremely attractive high-grade complete master set of this classic early Topps issue, entirely graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. The total SMR value for the individual cards exceeds $10,000. Total 354 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $9,400.00
