This is a very attractive complete set with all but a small percentage of cards ranging from Ex to Nr/Mt. The 1957 Topps represents one of the all-time classic 1950s issues from the "golden years" of baseball. The SMR value for just nine of the graded cards (not including the one altered card of #407 Mantle/Berra and 399 ungraded cards!) is $1,895. This is a very sharp-looking set and one with tremendous break value. Total: 409 cards (set of 407 plus 2 checklist cards). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $4,740
