26% Ex-Mt (including some higher), 54% Ex, and 20% Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). The 1954 Topps set has always been one of the most popular sets of the 1950s. Issued in the heart of the decade, the 1954 Topps set features the rookie cards of Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Al Kaline, among many other Hall of Famers and stars, including two examples of Ted Williams (first and last card in the set), all in brilliant and stunning color. We have selected six cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Williams (Vg+), 3 Irvin (Ex), 10 Robinson (EX+ 5.5), 13 Martin (Ex-Mt), 17 Rizzuto (Ex+), 20 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 30 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 32 Snider (Vg-Ex+), 36 Wilhelm (Ex-Mt+), 37 Ford (Ex), 45 Ashburn (Vg+), 50 Berra (Vg-Ex+), 70 Doby (Vg), 86 Herman (Vg-Ex+), 90 Mays (Vg+), 94 Banks (EX-MT 6), 103 Hodges (85/15 T/B, otherwise Ex+), 128 Aaron (VG-EX 4), 132 Lasorda RC (EX 5), 183 Combs (Vg-Ex), 187 Manush (Ex+), 201 Kaline RC (Authentic due to slight color added, otherwise Vg-Ex), and 250 Williams (EX-MT 6). This is a very attractive and extremely consistent complete set of this early 1950s classic, with tremendous eye-appeal throughout. Technically the set falls into the "very strong medium" grade category. Early sets in this grade are especially desirable and are among the most outstanding and least volatile values in the world of vintage cards. Total: 250 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
