10% Ex (with a few slightly better), 80% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, and 10% lesser grades (mostly Gd). This is a very attractive mixed-grade complete set (minus one card) of the classic 1956 Topps issue. Missing just #135 Mantle for completion. Issued in the heart of the 1950s, this set is highlighted by numerous stars and key cards, including Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax, and Roberto Clemente. One card is graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Harridge (Vg), 5 Williams (Gd), 10 Spahn (Vg), 15 Banks (Vg-Ex/Ex), 20 Kaline (Vg), 30 Robinson (Vg-Ex/Ex), 31 Aaron (Vg), 33 Clemente (Vg), 79 Koufax (PSA VG-EX 4), 101 Campanella (Vg), 107 Mathews (Ex), 110 Berra (Gd), 113 Rizzuto (Vg), 130 Mays (Vg), 150 Snider (Vg), 164 Killebrew (Vg-Ex), 166 Dodgers (Vg), 181 Martin (Vg-Ex), 200 Feller (Vg-Ex), 240 Ford (Vg-Ex/Ex), 251 Yankees (Ex), 260 Reese (Ex), and 292 Aparicio RC (Vg). With a little footwork, a #135 Mantle card can be located and purchased in Vg-Ex condition that would perfectly match and complete the set. Affordable, attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. Total 339 (of 340) cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200.
