The 284 cards which have not been encapsulated are comprised primarily of commons. The condition of the not-yet-encapsulated cards ranges in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt condition, averaging Ex-Mt overall. It is expensive to encapsulate a complete set with hundreds of cards, but the collector who put this set together did make the investment of grading 288 cards, which for a set of 572 cards is certainly an extremely substantial selection. This a very carefully assembled set with tremendous eye-appeal. This set obviously has tremendous break value. Crisp and attractive complete set of this classic 1950s issue. Total 572 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $5,287.50
