Presented is a complete 154-card set plus one variation of 1957 Topps Football, highlighted by thirty-four Hall of Famers, including the rookie cards of Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, and Paul Hornung, as well as the scarce #58 Bill Sherman error card (no team/position variation). Condition is 33% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt and 67% Vg-Ex to Ex (including a couple lesser). We have selected four key cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA.

With few exceptions, this is a particularly crisp and clean complete set of this popular football issue, highlighted by extremely attractive examples of several key cards. The SMR value for just the four PSA-graded cards is $2,160. Total: 155 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
