Lot # 738 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1958 Topps Complete Set (494)

Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $4,994

67% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (includes some Nr/Mt-Mt), 23% Ex, 10% lesser (the 10% lesser-graded cards are actually very crisp overall Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt cards that have been downgraded due to a natural miscut along the top as issued). This is a tremendous and extremely consistent high-grade set. A set of this exceptional quality is rarely seen outside of the PSA Registry. To get a better set, or even to upgrade this set, would cost a fortune. The only weak links which would really need to be upgraded are #150 Mantle, and the small number of natural miscuts (which are actually very sharp-looking cards). We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 5 Mays (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 25 Drysdale (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 30 Aaron (SGC NM 84), 47 Maris RC (80/20 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 52 Clemente (SGC NM+ 86), 70 Kaline (SGC NM/MT 88), 71 Dodgers Team (80/20 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 88 Snider (SGC NM+ 86), 150 Mantle (Gd-Vg), 162 Hodges (Nr/Mt), 187 Koufax (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 246 Yankees Team (70/30 L/R and T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 270 Spahn (SGC NM+ 86), 271 Martin (25/75 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 285 F. Robinson (20/80 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 288 Killebrew (Ex-Mt), 307 B. Robinson (miscut on top, otherwise Ex-Mt), 310 Banks (miscut on top, otherwise Nr/Mt), 314 Snider/Alston (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 320 Ford (miscut on top, otherwise Ex-Mt), 321 Williams/Klu (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex), 343 Cepeda RC (10/90 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 351 Braves’ Fence Busters (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 370 Berra (miscut on top, otherwise Ex), 375 Reese (Ex-Mt), 418 Mantle/Aaron (SGC NM+ 86), 436 Mays/Snider (90/10 L/R, otherwise Ex), 440 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 476 Musial AS (20/80 L/R and T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 485 T. Williams AS (SGC NM 84), 486 Mays AS (30/70 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 487 Mantle AS (20/80 L/R and T/B, otherwise Ex), and 488 Aaron AS (20/80 L/R and T/B, Nr/Mt). Aside from some centering issues this is an extremely attractive, fresh, crisp, overall Ex-Mt complete set of 1958 Topps, assembled by an old-time collector and stored away in a closet for over thirty years. The equivalent SMR value for just the seven SGC-graded cards (not including the additional 487 cards in the set) is $1,535. Total 494 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500+. SOLD FOR $4,994
