Includes forty-five black backs (#3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30, 31, 32, 36, 38, 39, 40, 42, 43, 45, 48a, 48b, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 70, 71, 73, 74, and 79). Ten cards have been graded by SGC or PSA (six of which we submitted). Keys: #1 Pafko (SGC VG 40), 2 Runnels RC (Vg), 11 Rizzuto (SGC VG 40), 20 Loes RC (90/10 L/R, otherwise Vg, black back), 22 DiMaggio (10/90 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), 26 Irvin (80/20 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex, black back), 29 Kluszewski (Vg, black back), 33 Spahn (SGC VG/EX 50), 36 Hodges (Vg/Vg-Ex, black back), 37 Snider (80/20 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex), 48a Page/correct (PSA VG-EX 4, black back), 48b Page/error (SGC GOOD 30, black back), 49 Sain/correct (Fr), 57 Lopat (Vg, black back), 59 Roberts (Vg-Ex, black back), 65 Slaughter (Vg/Vg-Ex, black back), 66 Roe (Vg/Vg-Ex), 67 Reynolds (Vg, black back), 88 Feller (Gd-Vg), 91 Schoendienst (Vg), 122 Jensen (Vg-Ex), 129 Mize (Gd-Vg), 175 Martin RC (Gd), 191 Berra (Vg), 195 Minoso RC (Vg), 215 Bauer (Ex), 216 Ashburn (Gd-Vg), 227 Garagiola (Vg-Ex), 243 Doby (Vg-Ex), 246 Kell (Fr), 250 Erskine (Gd), 261 Mays (SGC EX 60), 268 Lemon (Vg-Ex), and 277 Wynn (SGC VG/EX 50). The three additional graded cards are #96 (PSA EX 5), 294 (SGC EX 60), and 310 (SGC VG 40). This is a very attractive complete low-number run of 1952 Topps, one of card collecting’s most popular classics, in a very desirable and relatively affordable grade (compared to the much higher values of higher-grade 1952 Topps cards) and representing a very substantial start toward a complete set. The equivalent SMR value for key card #261 Willie Mays (SGC EX 60) alone is $900. Total 311 cards (low-number run of 310 cards plus one variation). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,231
