1957 Topps Complete Set (407)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,463
50% Nr/Mt or better, 40% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, 10% lesser. This is a very strong high-quality complete set of 1957 Topps. Of special note is the fact that this set was assembled by our consignor directly from packs in the year of issue. They have been very carefully saved, protected from all elements, as special keepsakes for the past forty-two years. He also assembled and saved complete sets from 1955 and 1956, both of which appear in this auction, but this is the set that stands out in terms of condition. In 1957 he finally got the hang of keeping his cards away from the playground! This was not an accident! He wanted this set to remain perfect, and has carefully guarded it for decades. This is a beautiful original-owner complete set. We have submitted nine cards from this set to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (Vg-Ex), 2 Berra (EX/NM 80), 7 Aparicio (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 10 Mays (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex), 15 Roberts (Ex-Mt), 18 Drysdale RC (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 20 Aaron (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 24 Mazeroski (Ex-Mt), 25 Ford (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 30 Reese (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 35 F. Robinson RC (NM+ 86), 38 Fox (Ex-Mt), 55 Banks (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 62 Martin (25/75 L/R and 20/80 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 70 Ashburn (NM+ 86), 76 Clemente (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 80 Hodges (20/80 L/R, otherwise Ex), 85 Doby (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 90 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 95 Mantle (NM 84), 97 Yankees Team (Vg-Ex), 125 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 165 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex), 170 Snider (Vg/Vg-Ex), 210 Campanella (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 212 Colavito RC (NM+ 86), 215 Slaughter (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 250 Mathews (75/25 L/R and 80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex), 286 Richardson RC (70/30 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 302 Koufax (EX+ 70), 312 Kubek RC (80/20 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 317 Giants Team (90/10 L/R and 25/75 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex), 324 Dodgers Team (Vg-Ex), 328 B. Robinson RC (NM 84), 338 Bunning RC (NM 84), 400 Dodgers’ Sluggers (10/90 L/R and 80/20 T/B, otherwise Ex), and 407 Mantle/Berra (EX/NM 80). 1957 Topps has always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. Aside from a few centering problems here and there, this set has a Near Mint appearance throughout. Bright, crisp, and fresh. The SMR value for just the nine SGC-graded cards alone (not including the 398 ungraded cards) is $2,425. Total 407 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $6,463
