1957 Topps Near-Complete Set (404/407)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,252
7% Ex-Mt, 71% Vg-Ex to Ex, 16% Vg, and 6% lesser. Very attractive near-complete set (missing only three cards for completion: #95 Mantle, 272 Shantz, and 328 B. Robinson) consigned by the family of an old-time collector. All cards present extremely well (most look superior to grades). Minor flaws, such as light corner wear, wrinkles, or in some cases very tiny pinpoint areas of paper loss on the reverse, are responsible for the modest technically accurate assigned grades. These cards look better than their very respectable assigned grades! We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (Gd, presents Ex+ with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 2 Berra (Vg, presents Ex+ with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 7 Aparicio (Gd), 10 Mays (Gd, presents Ex with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 15 Roberts (Vg-Ex), 18 Drysdale RC (SGC EX 60), 20 Aaron (SGC EX 60), 24 Mazeroski (Vg-Ex+), 25 Ford (Vg, presents Ex with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 30 Reese (Ex), 35 F. Robinson RC (Vg, presents Ex+ with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 38 Fox (Vg, presents Ex-Mt with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 40 Wynn (Vg-Ex), 55 Banks (Ex), 62 Martin (Ex), 70 Ashburn (Vg, presents Ex-Mt with small areas of paper loss on reverse), 76 Clemente (Vg), 80 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 90 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 125 Kaline (Vg-Ex), 154 Schoendienst (Vg), 170 Snider (Vg-Ex), 175 Larsen (Pr/Fr), 203 Wilhelm (Vg-Ex+), 210 Campanella (Vg), 212 Colavito RC (Vg, presents Ex+ with a small area of paper loss on reverse edge), 250 Mathews (Ex+), 286 Richardson RC (Vg-Ex), 302 Koufax (SGC EX+ 70), 312 Kubek RC (Ex), 324 Dodgers Team (Vg+), 338 Bunning RC (Vg-Ex, miscut back), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (Vg-Ex), 407 Mantle/Berra (95/5 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). 1957 Topps has always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is an extremely attractive mixed-grade complete set with the vast majority of the cards (78%) ranging from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt. The 1957 Topps set represents one of the all-time classic 1950s issues from the "golden years" of baseball. Total: 404 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,252
