1956 Topps Complete Set (340 plus 2 Checklists and 8 variations)

Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $14,220.00

35% Nr/Mt or better, 38% Ex-Mt, and 27% Ex (including some lesser grades). This is an extremely sharp, high-grade complete set of 1956 Topps highlighted by strong examples of all the key cards, including Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and many others. This set has been consigned by the original owner, who collected all the cards in the year of issue. Upon reviewing this set, it only took a second to know this was a particularly crisp, fresh set that had not seen the light of day in decades. This is a sharp-looking set! Six cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA (four submitted by REA and two submitted by our consignor). Keys: #1 Harridge (Gd+), 2 Giles (Ex-Mt), 5 Williams (PSA EX 5), 10 Spahn (Ex), 15 Banks (85/15 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 20 Kaline (Nr/Mt+), 30 Robinson (Ex), 31 Aaron (95/5 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 33 Clemente (90/10 L/R and T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 79 Koufax (PSA NM 7), 101 Campanella (Ex), 107 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 110 Berra (Ex), 113 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 118 Fox (Nr/Mt+), 120 Ashburn (Nr/Mt+), 130 Mays (PSA EX+ 5.5), 135 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6), 145 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 150 Snider (Ex), 164 Killebrew (Ex), 166 Dodgers (PSA NM 7), 180 Roberts (Nr/Mt+), 181 Martin (Ex-Mt), 200 Feller (PSA NM-MT+ 8.5), 240 Ford (85/15 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 251 Yankees (Vg-Ex), 260 Reese (Ex+), 292 Aparicio RC (Ex-Mt). Included with the set are both unnumbered checklist cards: #1/3 Checklist (Ex-Mt+), #2/4 Checklist (Ex), four "dated" team-card variations: Cincinnati (Ex), Cleveland (Fr, ink on back otherwise Vg-Ex), Milwaukee (Vg-Ex+), and Philadelphia (Fr, ink on back otherwise Vg-Ex), and four "no date, name on left" team card variations: Cincinnati (Vg-Ex), Cleveland (Vg-Ex), Milwaukee (Ex-Mt+), and Philadelphia (Nr/Mt). Bright, clean, and crisp. This is a beautifully assembled, very consistent, high-grade set, with the vast majority of cards grading Ex-Mt or better. SMR value for just the six PSA-graded cards is $2,005. Total: 350 cards (set of 340 plus two checklists, four "dated" team cards, and four "no date, name on left" team cards). Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $14,220.00
