1958 Topps "Yellow Letter" Variations Near-Complete Set (28/33)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,040

Near-complete set of twenty-eight different "Yellow Letter" variation cards from the classic 1958 Topps set (of the thirty-three cards in the complete "Yellow Letter" subset). The "Yellow Letter" variations (which feature the player or team name printed in yellow, as opposed to the white, on select cards which are numbered between 2 and 108) have always been a challenge for serious Topps completists. Usually found one at a time or in very small groups, these variations are seldom offered as a complete or near-complete set. Nineteen of the twenty-eight cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. This collection consists of the following: #2 Lemon (EX 5), 8 (EX-MT 6), 13 (ink mark on back, otherwise Ex), 20 McDougald (NM 7), 23 (EX 5), 24 (Ex), 30 Aaron (EX-MT 6), 32 (Vg-Ex+), 35 (EX 5), 46 (EX 5), 50 (EX+ 5.5), 52 Clemente (NM 7), 53 (VG+ 3.5), 57 (Ex), 58 (Ex), 61 Johnson (EX-MT 6), 65 (ink on back, otherwise Vg-Ex+), 70 Kaline (Fr/Gd), 76 (NM 7), 78 (Ex+), 79 (NM 7), 81 (EX 5), 92 (EX-MT 6), 97 (EX-MT 6), 98 (Gd), 100 Wynn (NM 7), 101 Richardson (NM 7), and 108 (NM 7). Missing only #11, 33, 60, 77, and 85. A very attractive near-complete set of 1958 Topps "Yellow Letter" variation cards with several extremely notable highlights. The total SMR value for eighteen of the graded cards (excluding the one graded less than EX) is $1,790. Total: 28 cards. SOLD FOR $2,040
