1956 Topps Complete Set (340 plus 2 Checklists)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $6,517.50
9% Nr/Mt, 32% Ex-Mt, and 59% Ex (with some lesser, mostly Vg-Ex). This is a very attractive complete set of 1956 Topps, one of the great classics of the decade, in fairly high grade. This set was very carefully assembled by an old-time collector and has been stored away for ages. We have selected six cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Harridge (Ex+), 5 Williams (Vg-Ex), 10 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 15 Banks (Ex-Mt), 20 Kaline (Ex), 30 Robinson (EX/NM 80), 31 Aaron (NM 84), 33 Clemente (VG/EX 50), 79 Koufax (Ex), 101 Campanella (Ex-Mt), 107 Mathews (Ex), 110 Berra (Ex), 113 Rizzuto (Ex), 120 Ashburn (Nr/Mt+), 130 Mays (NM 84), 135 Mantle (EX 60), 145 Hodges (Vg-Ex+), 150 Snider (Ex), 164 Killebrew (Ex), 166 Dodgers (Vg-Ex+), 181 Martin (Ex), 200 Feller (Ex+), 240 Ford (Vg-Ex), 251 Yankees (Ex+), 260 Reese (Ex), and 292 Aparicio RC (EX/NM 80). This is a beautifully assembled, very consistent set. Crisp, clean, fresh 1950s sets like this that are in beautiful overall Ex to Nr/Mt condition (but fall short of far more expensive Nr/Mt-Mt condition) are naturally always popular with collectors and represent great collecting values. The equivalent SMR value for just five of the graded cards (excluding the SGC VG/EX 50 #33 Clemente and the 334 ungraded cards!) is $1,385. Total: 342 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $6,517.50
