Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $4,500

17% Nr/Mt or better, 38% Ex-Mt, and 45% Ex (including approximately 3% Vg to Vg-Ex). Very attractive complete set of 1956 Topps. This is a beautiful set, with 97% ranging from EX to NR/MT. Of the 340 cards in the set, forty (12%) have been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except three SGC and four GAI). Keys: #1 Harridge (Ex), 2 Giles (Ex), 5 Williams (Ex), 10 Spahn (Vg-Ex+), 15 Banks (Ex+, miscut back), 20 Kaline (Vg-Ex), 30 Robinson (Ex+), 31 Aaron (Gd), 33 Clemente (Ex), 79 Koufax (Ex), 101 Campanella (PSA NM 7), 107 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 109 Slaughter (Ex), 110 Berra (PSA NM 7), 113 Rizzuto (PSA NM 7), 118 Fox (Ex), 120 Ashburn (Ex), 130 Mays (Ex), 135 Mantle (GAI EX-MT+ 6.5), 145 Hodges (Ex-Mt), 150 Snider (PSA EX-MT 6), 164 Killebrew (Ex), 166 Dodgers (possible color added, otherwise Ex-Mt), 180 Roberts (Vg-Ex), 181 Martin (PSA EX-MT 6), 200 Feller (PSA NM 7), 240 Ford (PSA EX-MT 6), 251 Yankees (PSA EX-MT 6), 260 Reese (PSA EX-MT 6), 292 Aparicio RC (SGC NM 84), 307 Wilhelm (PSA NM 7), and 332 Larsen (PSA NM 7). Other Graded Cards: PSA: NM-MT 8 (8 cards): #14, 42, 191, 247, 280, 295, 316, and 320. NM 7 (7 cards): #21, 40, 80, 88, 111, 173, and 306. EX-MT 6 (6 cards): #12, 52, 90, 177, 340, and checklist 1/3. VG-EX+ 4.5 (1 card): checklist 2/4. SGC: NM 84 (1 card): #305. EX/NM 80 (1 card): #126. GAI: NM+ 7.5 (3 cards): #140, 162, and 225. This is an extremely sharp-looking complete set of one of the most popular issues of the decade. Almost all of the cards graded less than EX-MT have been downgraded solely due to just a hint of honest handling wear at the corners or centering issues. The total SMR value for just thirty-nine of the graded cards (excluding the one card graded VG-EX+ and the 302 ungraded cards!) is $3,594. Total: 342 cards (set of 340 plus two checklists).
