Complete set of 274 different 1953 Topps cards. 60% range in grade from Vg to Ex (includes a few slightly better), and 40% lesser grades (these lower-grade cards all have an Ex to Ex-Mt appearance but have been downgraded due to paper remnants, glue residue, and/or paper loss on their reverses from scrapbook removal; these cards have been noted as "back damage" in the individual grading of keys that follows). Keys: #1 Robinson (Gd), 10 Burgess SP (Ex), 27 Campanella (back damage), 37 Mathews (back damage), 41 Slaughter (back damage), 54 Feller (back damage), 61 Wynn SP (back damage), 62 Irvin (back damage), 76 Reese (back damage), 77 Mize (back damage), 78 Schoendienst (back damage), 81 Black SP (Vg), 82 Mantle (glue residue and paper loss on the reverse, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), 86 Martin (back damage), 87 Lopat (back damage), 104 Berra (back damage), 114 Rizzuto (back damage), 119 Sain SP (Vg), 138 Kell (Ex), 147 Spahn (back damage), 149 DiMaggio (back damage), 151 Wilhelm (Ex-Mt), 162 Klu (back damage), 191 Kiner (Vg-Ex), 207 Ford (back damage), 220 Paige (back damage), 228 Newhouser (back damage), 244 Mays (back damage, otherwise Vg-Ex), 246 Face (back damage), 254 Roe (back damage), 258 Gilliam SP (back damage), 263 Podres SP (Vg-Ex), 265 Jensen SP (back damage), 273 Haddix SP (back damage), 280 Bolling (back damage). Affordable low-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. Also included with the complete set are 182 duplicates, in similar condition as the complete set (many with back damage). Total 456 cards (complete set of 274 cards plus 182 extras). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
