10% Nr/Mt, 80% range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex overall), and 10% Vg. This is the type of vintage set that many collectors consider the very best value. The cards are classic, they look great, and even though they are in fairly high grade (this is a nice-looking set), they do not cost a fortune compared to higher-grade cards. In many cases, in the highest grades, a few commons from an early 1950s set can currently be valued by the market at more than an entire set such as this; and when it comes time to sell, a set such as this will actually generate far more interest from collectors as well, precisely because they are more affordable. We have selected seventeen cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Williams (EX 5), 3 Irvin (EX 5 [MC]), 10 Robinson (VG 3), 13 Martin (Vg-Ex), 17 Rizzuto (Ex), 20 Spahn (EX 5), 30 Mathews (EX-MT 6), 32 Snider (VG-EX 4), 36 Wilhelm (VG-EX 4), 37 Ford (EX-MT 6), 45 Ashburn (VG-EX 4), 50 Berra (EX 5), 52 Power (VG-EX 4), 70 Doby (EX 5), 90 Mays (VG-EX 4), 94 Banks RC (Vg-Ex), 102 Hodges (Ex-Mt), 128 Aaron RC (VG-EX 4), 132 Lasorda RC (EX 5), 201 Kaline RC (EX 5), 239 Skowron RC (Ex), and 250 Williams (VG-EX+ 4.5). A very attractive, mid- to high-grade complete set of this classic, early 1950s Topps issue. Total 250 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $5,288
