30% Ex (with a few slightly better), 60% range in grade from Vg to Vg-Ex, and 10% lesser grades. Highlighted by a very attractive example of key rookie card #128 Hank Aaron. This is the type of vintage set that many collectors consider the very best value. The cards are classic, they look great, and they don't cost a fortune compared to higher-grade cards. In many cases, in the highest grades, a few commons from an early 1950s set can be valued at more than an entire set such as this, and when it comes time to selling, a set such as this will actually generate far more interest from collectors as well, precisely because they are more affordable. We have selected seven cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Williams (SGC VG 40), 3 Irvin (Vg), 7 Kluszewski (Fr), 10 Robinson (Gd), 13 Martin (Vg), 17 Rizzuto (Vg), 20 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 30 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 32 Snider (Vg), 36 Wilhelm (Vg), 37 Ford (Gd), 45 Ashburn (Vg), 50 Berra (Vg), 70 Doby (Vg), 90 Mays (SGC GOOD 30), 94 Banks RC (SGC VG 40), 102 Hodges (Vg), 128 Aaron RC (SGC VG 40) , 132 Lasorda RC (SGC VG/EX 50), 201 Kaline RC (SGC VG/EX 50), 239 Skowron RC (Gd), and 250 Williams (SGC VG 40). This is a very attractive mixed-grade set of this classic Topps issue, loaded with Hall of Famers and stars from the 1950s. Total: 250 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
