Collection of forty-nine different Topps cards featuring Hall of Famers (includes a few major non-HOFer stars) spanning the years 1953 to 1978, highlighted by stars such as Mantle, Banks, Maris, Seaver, Ryan, and many more. These cards were saved by an old-time collector as a sample representation of great stars from these sets. We selected four cards from the group to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. The collection consists of the following: 1) 1953 Topps (2 cards): #104 Berra (Ex) and 114 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex/Ex). 2) 1954 Topps (4 cards): #13 Martin (10/90 L/R, otherwise Ex), 70 Doby (Ex-Mt), 94 Banks RC (SGC VG/EX 50), and 201 Kaline RC (SGC VG/EX 50). 3) 1955 Topps (2 cards): #50 Robinson (Ex) and 124 Killebrew RC (Ex). 4) 1957 Topps (3 cards): #18 Drysdale RC (Ex), 35 F. Robinson RC (Ex-Mt), and 338 Bunning RC (Vg-Ex). 5) 1958 Topps (1 card): #47 Maris RC (SGC EX 60). 6) 1959 Topps (1 card): #514 Gibson RC (1/99 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). 7) 1960 Topps (1 card): #316 McCovey RC (Vg-Ex). 8) 1961 Topps (1 card): #417 Marichal RC (Vg-Ex/Ex). 9) 1962 Topps (1 card): #1 Maris (SGC EX/NM 80). 10) 1963 Topps (2 cards): #550 Snider (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt) and 553 Stargell RC (25/75 L/R, otherwise Ex). 11) 1964 Topps (3 cards): #146 John RC (Ex-Mt), 243 Allen RC (Vg-Ex/Ex), and 541 Neikro RC (Vg-Ex/Ex). 12) 1965 Topps (3 cards): #16 Morgan RC (Ex), 477 Carlton RC (Ex-Mt), and 526 Hunter RC (Ex). 13) 1966 Topps (5 cards): #50 Mantle (Ex), 126 Palmer RC (Ex-Mt), 254 Jenkins RC (Ex-Mt), 288 Sutton RC (Ex), and 469 Murcer RC (Ex). 14) 1967 Topps (5 cards): two #150 Mantle (Ex-Mt and Ex), 500 Marichal (Ex), 569 Carew RC (Vg/Vg-Ex), and 581 Seaver RC (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt). 15) 1968 Topps (3 cards): #177 Ryan RC (Ex), 247 Bench RC (Ex-Mt), and 280 Mantle (Ex-Mt). 16) 1969 Topps (2 cards): #260 Jackson RC (20/80 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt) and 480 Seaver (Ex). 17) 1971 Topps (2 cards): #26 Blyleven RC (Ex-Mt) and 341 Garvey RC (Ex-Mt). 18) 1973 Topps (2 cards): #50 Clemente (Vg-Ex/Ex) and 615 Schmidt RC (25/75 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt). 19) 1974 Topps (1 card): #456 Winfield RC (Ex-Mt). 20) 1975 Topps (3 cards): #228 Brett RC (Nr/Mt), 616 Rice RC (Ex), and 620 Carter RC (Nr/Mt). 21) 1978 Topps (2 cards): #36 Murray RC (25/75 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt) and 707 Molitor/Trammell RC (Ex). This is a very attractive collection of forty-nine different Hall of Famer (and major star) cards, spanning the years 1953 to 1978, including many key cards of the era, and with most cards having eye-appeal far superior to that suggested by their technically accurate grades. This is a great-looking group! Total 49 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
