1957 Topps High-Grade Collection (75)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $4,406.25

This exceptionally clean high-grade collection of seventy-five 1957 Topps baseball cards has a very high concentration of key cards and is highlighted by eighteen Hall of Famers, numerous stars, and thirteen team cards. 70% grade Near Mint or better, 30% Ex-Mt or better. This is not a random group. These cards were put aside decades ago by a very discriminating collector, long before professional grading existed, as a representative selection of cards from the set. He naturally kept a lot of better cards. These cards have been in a closet for over thirty years! We have selected four cards to be graded by PSA. The balance of seventy-one ungraded cards are in similar impressive condition.
