90% range from Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt (averaging Nr/Mt), 10% Ex (with just a few in slightly lesser grades). This is a stunning set! Extremely sharp, exceptionally high grade complete set of 1956 Topps, one of the great classics of the decade. This set has been put away for ages by an old-time collector. His active baseball-card collecting days were long over before professional grading became popular but he was always interested in only high-grade sets. This extraordinary set may be his finest. It is a beautiful high-grade set that has remained untouched for decades. We have selected six cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Harridge (Ex), 5 Williams (PSA deemed the card had evidence of trimming), 10 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 15 Banks (Ex-Mt), 20 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 30 Robinson (Ex), 31 Aaron (PSA EX 5), 33 Clemente (Ex-Mt), 79 Koufax (PSA NM-MT 8 [OC]), 101 Campanella (Nr/Mt), 107 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 110 Berra (PSA NM 7), 113 Rizzuto (Nr/Mt), 130 Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 135 Mantle (PSA EX-MT 6), 145 Hodges (Ex-Mt), 150 Snider (Ex), 164 Killebrew (Vg), 166 Dodgers (PSA NM-MT 8), 181 Martin (Ex), 200 Feller (Ex), 240 Ford (Ex-Mt), 251 Yankees (Nr/Mt), 260 Reese (Ex), and 292 Aparicio RC (Ex-Mt). This is a beautifully assembled, very consistent, extremely high grade set, with the vast majority of cards grading Nr/Mt or better. Total 340 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000. SOLD FOR $8,813
