Presented is an outstanding near-complete set of 1954 Topps baseball cards consisting of 212 different cards (out of 250), entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is a very respectable and extremely consistent complete set of this early 1950s classic, with tremendous eye appeal throughout.

EX 5 (90 cards): #2, 3 Irvin, 4, 9, 18, 19, 21 (MC), 27-29, 36 Wilhelm, 38, 44, 46-48, 51, 56, 63, 67, 69, 74, 78, 80, 82, 85, 87, 88, 92, 98, 99, 107-111, 114, 118, 120 (MC), 125, 127, 130, 131, 132 Lasorda RC, 133, 134, 136, 140, 141, 147-149, 157, 163, 164, 166, 169, 170, 173, 175, 177-180, 182, 183 Combs, 184, 187 Manush, 191, 193, 200, 207, 208, 211, 215, 216, 218-222, 226, 227, 232, 233, 234 (MC), 235, 242, 246, and 247. VG-EX+ 4.5 (7 cards): #42, 59, 76, 77, 81, 121, and 223. VG-EX 4 (60 cards): #6, 8, 12, 13 B. Martin, 14, 15, 16, 24, 32 Snider, 33, 34, 40, 43, 52, 54, 65, 66, 72, 73, 84, 86 Herman, 89, 95-97, 100, 101, 103, 105, 106, 115, 117 (MC), 119, 123, 124, 137, 144, 146, 152, 153, 156, 161, 162, 174, 176, 189, 190, 194, 199, 202, 204, 205, 209, 210, 228, 230, 231, 236, 245, and 248. VG 3 (3 cards): #20 Spahn, 126, and 249. GOOD 2 (1 card): #122 Logan. Missing the following cards for completion: #1 Williams, 10 J. Robinson, 17 Rizzuto, 25, 30 Mathews, 35, 37 Ford, 50 Berra, 55, 62, 64, 68, 71, 75, 83, 93, 94 Banks RC, 128 Aaron RC, 135, 139, 142, 154, 158, 159, 165, 167, 168, 171, 198, 201 Kaline RC, 213, 214, 224, 229, 237, 239, 240, and 250 Williams. Technically the set falls into the "very strong medium" grade category, but has an overall presentation of a technically much more expensive and higher-grade set. It would be hard to imagine a true collector looking at this set and thinking anything but "Wow!" Early sets in this rare grade are especially desirable, representing the most solid and least volatile value in the world of vintage cards. The SMR value for just 132 cards (excluding the six qualified cards and the seventy-one cards graded less than EX) is $2,425. Total: 212 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+.
