Presented is an extremely substantial collection of 1958 Topps cards consisting of approximately 3,700 cards, highlighted by more than 150 Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, and Ernie Banks. The classic 1958 Topps set features all the great stars of the era, in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again on special multiplayer cards or in the All-Star series (#476-494). This is a very consistent and presentable collection that grades 24% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few better), 59% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 17% lesser. Keys: Five #2 Lemon (three Vg-Ex, Vg, and Gd), six 25 Drysdale (two Vg-Ex, two Vg, Gd, and Fr), two 30 Aaron (both Vg+), three 70 Kaline (Vg-Ex, Vg+, and 10/90 L/R, otherwise Ex), four 100 Wynn (Ex, Vg-Ex, and two Vg), five 115 Bunning (three Vg-Ex, Vg, and Gd), six 190 Schoendienst (two Vg, three Gd, and Fr), two 246 Yankees (Vg-Ex and Gd), eight 270 Spahn (two Vg-Ex, three Vg, Gd, and two Fr), four 271 Martin (two Vg-Ex and two Vg), four 285 F. Robinson (two Vg, Gd, and Fr), 304 Kuenn/Kaline (Vg), 314 Snider/Alston (Vg-Ex), six 324 Wilhelm (two Ex, three Vg-Ex, and Vg), two 343 Cepeda RC (Gd and Fr), four 375 Reese (two Vg-Ex, Vg, and Gd), nine 386 Bailey/Tebbets/F. Robinson (five Vg-Ex, three Vg, and Pr-Fr), five 400 Fox (Ex, two Vg-Ex, and two Vg), thirteen 420 Pinson RC (Ex, four Vg-Ex, five Vg, and three Gd), five 424 Doby (two Vg-Ex and three Vg), fourteen Snider/Mays (Ex, five Vg-Ex, six Vg, Gd, and Fr), twelve 440 Mathews (Ex, seven Vg-Ex, and four Vg), three 464 Flood RC (Ex, Vg-Ex, and Gd), two 475 Haney (Vg and Fr), twenty-one 476 Musial AS (seven Ex, seven Vg-Ex, five Vg, and two Gd), fourteen 480 Mathews AS (two Ex, five Vg-Ex, four Vg, Gd, and two Fr), thirteen 482 Banks AS (Ex, three Vg-Ex, six Vg, Gd, two Fr), six F. Robinson AS (Vg-Ex, four Vg, and Gd), five 488 Aaron AS (two Vg-Ex, Vg, Gd, and Fr), and ten 494 Spahn AS (five Vg-Ex, two Vg, two Gd, and Fr). This is an outstanding collection, with several notable highlights, that would provide a tremendous foundation for the assembly of several midgrade complete sets with hundreds of cards left over to trade! Total: approximately 3,700 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
