1952 Topps PSA NM-MT 8 Collection Including #3 Thompson (3)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,525

Three different extremely high grade 1952 Topps high numbers. All three are graded NM-MT 8 by PSA: #3 Hank Thompson (black back, none graded higher by PSA), 165 Eddie Kazak (only one graded higher), and 174 Clarence Marshall (only one graded higher). Card #3 Hank Thompson is a particularly significant condition rarity in the 1952 Topps set. Like more well known condition rarities #1 Pafko and #2 Runnels, card #3 also tended to gravitate toward the top of stacks of cards organized by number, and in the process tended to experience more wear than other cards as a result. The PSA population report confirms the extreme rarity of this early low-number card in such extraordinary high-grade. The 1952 Topps set is legendary for being the premier gum card set of the 1950 era. The three quality cards in this lot would provide upgrades to virtually any world-class 1952 Topps set in the process of being assembled, or contribute positively to just about any PSA Registry set. SMR value is $3,300. Total 3 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $3,525
