1953 Topps Complete Set (274)

Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $7,638

43% range in grade from Ex to Ex-Mt (with a few Nr/Mt), 57% range from Vg to Vg-Ex (two cards slightly lesser). This is an extremely high quality complete set of 1953 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets, highlighted by high-grade examples of key cards Mantle and Mays (both graded EX-MT 6 by PSA). Thirty-two cards are graded by PSA, one by SGC, and four by GAI.

Four EX 5: #100 Miller SP, 186, 213, and 239. This is an exceptionally attractive mid-to high-grade set, far above average for this issue, with tremendous eye appeal across the board. A high quality and very carefully assembled complete set of one of card collecting's most popular issues. The equivalent SMR value for just the thirty-five graded cards alone (not including the GAI VG-EX+ 4.5 of #1 Robinson and qualified card #219) is $5,320. Total 274 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000+. SOLD FOR $7,638
