Exceptionally crisp high-grade complete set of 1957 Topps "Target: Moon" cards. "Target: Moon" features spectacular futuristic scenes and events in man's conquest of space. Trading card sets always reflect the world and times in which they are issued. The "Target: Moon" set, of course, was issued at a time when the space race put the world at the cusp of new and exciting advances in space exploration. Nineteen of the eighty-eight cards (22% of the set) have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. All are bright and fresh, with bold colors, and sharp corners. The set includes nine NM-MT 8s (cards #4, 11, 13, 22, 45, 53, 61, 74, 78), nine NM 7s (cards #8, 27, 31, 42, 50, 51, 62, 71, 86), one EX 5 (#72), and sixty-nine ungraded (sixty-five Ex or better including a few with typical centering issues, four lesser). This is an extraordinary high-grade set of this extremely popular 1950s nonsport card issue. Total: 88 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $948
