29% Ex (including a few better), 65% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 6% lesser. The 1954 Topps set is highlighted by the rookie cards of Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, and Al Kaline, and is universally recognized as one of the most popular and classic of all 1950s baseball-card sets. We have selected three key cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Williams (Vg), 3 Irvin (Vg-Ex), 10 Robinson (Vg+), 13 Martin (Vg+), 17 Rizzuto (85/15 L/R, otherwise Ex), 20 Spahn (Ex), 30 Mathews (5/95 T/B, otherwise Vg-Ex), 32 Snider (Vg-Ex+), 37 Ford (Vg), 45 Ashburn (Vg-Ex+), 50 Berra (Vg-Ex), 70 Doby (Gd), 90 Mays (NM/MT 88), 94 Banks RC (VG+ 45), 102 Hodges (Vg-Ex+), 128 Aaron RC (GOOD 30), 132 Lasorda RC (Vg-Ex), 201 Kaline RC (two small areas with glue on back, otherwise Ex), 239 Skowron RC (Vg), and 250 Williams (pinhole, otherwise Vg). Extremely attractive vintage sets such as this that are in mid-grade condition are especially desirable, representing an exceptional collecting value. This is a beautiful yet still relatively affordable set of this classic early Topps issue, loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1950s. Total: 250 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
