32% Nr/Mt (including ten Nr/Mt-Mt), 55% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 13% lesser (including twenty-six cards which exhibit a slight trim). This is a very sharp-looking complete set of the classic 1957 Topps issue, mostly in fairly high grade. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Don Drysdale, Frank Robinson, and Brooks Robinson, the 1957 Topps includes many additional key star cards, among them Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle. Of the 407 cards in the set, sixty-eight have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (unless otherwise noted), including the many key cards (Mantle, Clemente, Koufax, Williams, Berra, and Drysdale).

GAI NM+ 7.5 (4 cards): #42, 188 (SGC NM+ 86), 222, and 380. 1957 Topps has always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is a very attractive complete set with a very large percentage of cards (87%) ranging from Ex to Nr/Mt. The 1957 Topps represents one of the all-time classic 1950s issues from the "golden years" of baseball. The SMR value in the assigned grades is $4,044 (factoring the half-grades at the lower full-grade level). This is a very sharp-looking 1957 Topps set and one with tremendous break value. Total: 407 cards.

Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500++.
