Collection of forty autographed Topps cards spanning the years 1961 to 1963. Thirty of the cards have been encapsulated by SGC, while the other ten have been encapsulated by PSA/DNA. A few of the cards and/or signatures have been individually graded by the respective company (duly noted in our listing), otherwise all of the signatures have been certified as "Authentic." The signatures, penned in a variety of inks, range from "7" to "10," averaging "8/9," with the exception of Chico Fernandez ("3"). The cards range in grade from Fr to Ex-Mt, averaging Vg-Ex. Only PSA/DNA encapsulated cards are noted in the listing; all others have been encapsulated by SGC. This is an exceptionally pleasing collection of classic 1950s Topps cards bearing beautiful signatures of the depicted players.
