Presented is an outstanding collection of forty-six Hall of Famers (and one major star) from fourteen classic Topps sets spanning the years 1957 to 1972.

Williams (NM+ 7.5). 14) 1972 Topps (2 cards): #200 Brock (Nr/Mt) and 447 Stargell (Vg+). While the condition of cards in this collection spans several grades, it remains a small but desirable grouping of key cards from these very popular sets from the golden age of baseball cards. The total SMR value for just the fifteen graded cards is $1,093 (factoring the half-grades at the lower whole-grade level). Total: 46 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++.
