60% range from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex-Mt), 40% Vg to Vg-Ex (includes just a few cards slightly lesser). Extremely attractive mid-to high-grade complete set of 1956 Topps cards, which actually presents better than suggested by its very respectable condition composite. We have selected three cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Harridge (Gd), 5 Williams (Gd-Vg), 10 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 15 Banks (Ex), 20 Kaline (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 30 Robinson (Nr/Mt), 31 Aaron (PSA EX-MT 6), 33 Clemente (Vg), 79 Koufax (Vg), 101 Campanella (Ex-Mt), 107 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 110 Berra (Nr/Mt), 113 Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), 120 Ashburn (Vg-Ex/Ex), 130 Mays (PSA NM 7), 135 Mantle (Pr-Fr), 145 Hodges (Ex), 150 Snider (PSA NM 7), 164 Killebrew (Vg), 166 Dodgers (Nr/Mt), 181 Martin (Ex), 200 Feller (70/30 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 240 Ford (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex), 251 Yankees (Vg), 260 Reese (Vg), 292 Aparicio RC (Ex-Mt), and 332 Larsen (Nr/Mt). Included with the set is one unnumbered checklist card: #2/4 Checklist (Vg, marked in blue ink); six "dated" team card variations: Baltimore (Ex), Chicago (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), Cincinnati (Nr/Mt), Cleveland (Ex-Mt), Milwaukee (Ex), and Philadelphia (Nr/Mt); and six "no date, name on left" team card variations: Baltimore (Fr), Chicago (Vg), Cincinnati (Vg), Cleveland (Gd-Vg), Milwaukee (80/20 T/B, otherwise Vg-Ex), and Philadelphia (70/30 L/R, Vg/Vg-Ex). Bright, clean, and crisp. This is a quality set, beautifully assembled, very consistent, and overall fairly high grade, with the majority of cards grading Ex or better, and many cards, including many key cards, Ex-Mt or Nr/Mt. Total 353 cards (set of 340 plus one checklist, six "dated" team cards, and six "no date, name on left" team cards). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,406.25
