60% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex overall) with a few Nr/Mt, 40% Vg (includes a few slightly lesser). The 1954 Topps set is highlighted by the rookie cards of Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Al Kaline, and is universally recognized as one of the most popular and classic of all 1950s baseball-card sets. This is an extremely attractive mixed-grade complete set of 1954 Topps baseball.

Other PSA-graded cards (all EX-MT 6): #11, 131, 140, 145, 189, 197, and 210. Vintage sets in this grade are especially desirable, representing an exceptional value. Beautiful set with few upgrades needed. This is a very attractive mixed-grade set of this classic Topps issue, loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1950s.
