10% Ex-Mt, 55% Ex, and 35% Vg-Ex (including 5% slightly lesser). Extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of 1956 Topps featuring all the Hall of Famers and stars of the era, including Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, and Willie Mays. We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Harridge (Ex), 2 Giles (Ex+), 5 Williams (Vg-Ex), 10 Spahn (Ex+), 15 Banks (Vg-Ex+), 20 Kaline (Ex+), 30 Robinson (Ex+), 31 Aaron (NM 84), 33 Clemente (Vg-Ex+), 79 Koufax (Ex+), 101 Campanella (Vg-Ex+), 107 Mathews (Vg-Ex+), 110 Berra (Ex), 113 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 118 Fox (Ex), 120 Ashburn (Ex), 130 Mays (EX/NM 80), 135 Mantle (GOOD 30 due to glue on reverse, otherwise Vg-Ex), 145 Hodges (Ex), 150 Snider (Ex), 164 Killebrew (Vg-Ex+), 165 Schoendienst (Gd/Vg), 166 Dodgers (Ex), 180 Roberts (Ex), 181 Martin (Ex), 200 Feller (Ex), 240 Ford (Ex+), 251 Yankees (Vg-Ex), 260 Reese (Ex), 292 Aparicio RC (Vg-Ex+), 307 Wilhelm (Ex), and 332 Larsen (Vg+). It's easy to see why beautiful mid-grade sets are always in high demand. They are so often great-looking cards (as is the case here), they don't cost a fortune as do high-grade sets, and they represent an outstanding collecting value. And because they are more affordable than technically higher grade sets, collectors are always on the lookout for them and there are always many buyers! This is a very consistent and attractive complete set of this classic issue. Total: 340 cards. SOLD FOR $2,400
