Autographed 1952 Topps Baseball-Card Collection (172)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $7,050

1952 Topps collection of 172 different autographed cards of the 407 cards in the set. To many, 1952 Topps is the ultimate postwar baseball-card set. A completely autographed set is unheard of, but if ever assembled would certainly be considered by many as the ultimate autographed baseball-card set. The offered collection is 42% complete and makes for a fine start toward that most ambitious project. Among the "tougher" signatures featured here are those of George Stirnweiss, Ron Northey, Willie Jones, Luke Easter, Bob Elliott, Hank Thompson, Harry Simpson, Pete Reiser, Max Surkont, Erv Palica, Paul Richards, Red Rolfe, Bob Porterfield, Eddie Waitkus, Frank Overmire, Joe Haynes, Fred Hutchinson, and Jim Konstanty. The Hall of Famers represented here are Roberts, Slaughter, Schoendienst, Doby, Kell, and Wynn. Signatures, penned in a variety of inks, grade "8/9" on average, with just a few lesser. Cards range from Pr to Vg-Ex, averaging Gd-Vg. The few signatures that have been covered with tape are duly noted in our listing. The card numbers offered here are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 14, 17, 19, 21, 24, 25, 27, 29, 31, 34, 47, 52, 54, 55 (tape), 57, 59, 60, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 72, 73, 75, 77, 79 (signature once covered with tape; residue remains), 81, 82, 83, 85, 91, 94, 96, 98 (tape), 99, 102, 106, 107, 108, 110, 111, 112, 113, 116, 117 (tape), 118, 119, 120, 122, 123, 125, 126, 127, 128, 131, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 143, 145, 146, 148, 150, 151, 152, 153, 155, 157, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, 165, 168, 169, 170, 171, 172, 173, 177, 180, 182 (tape), 187 (signature once covered with tape; residue remains), 188, 189, 192, 193, 194, 195, 196, 197 (signature once covered with tape; residue remains), 199, 200, 201, 203, 204, 205, 212, 213, 217, 218, 219, 220, 221, 223, 226, 227, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237, 238, 239, 240, 242, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 249, 250, 256, 258, 260, 262, 263, 264, 265, 266, 268, 269, 271, 272, 273, 275, 276 (signature once covered with tape; residue remains), 277, 278, 281, 282, 286, 287, 288, 290, 291, 295, 296, 297, 298, 299, 301, 302, 303, 305, 306, 309, and 310.
