Complete and exceptionally attractive mid-grade set of 1957 Topps cards. 94% range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex) and 6% grade Vg (with a few slightly lesser).1957 Topps has always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. We have selected eight cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (EX/MT+ 82), 2 Berra (Ex), 7 Aparicio (Ex+), 10 Mays (EX/NM 80), 15 Roberts (Ex), 18 Drysdale RC (GOOD 30, due to pen on reverse, otherwise Ex), 20 Aaron (EX+ 70), 24 Mazeroski RC (Vg-Ex+), 25 Ford (Vg), 30 Reese (Ex+), 35 F.

Robinson RC (EX/NM 80), 338 Bunning RC (Ex), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (NM 84), and 407 Mantle/Berra (EX+ 70). This is the type of 1950s set that is always sought after as it represents such an outstanding collecting value compared to the cost of these cards in higher grade, while sacrificing little in the way of appearance. From an old-time collection. This is a very high quality, complete set of 1957 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets. The equivalent SMR value for just seven of the eight graded cards (factoring in the three half-grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the one card graded less than EX or the 399 ungraded cards!) is $1,275. Total: 407 cards. SOLD FOR $2,700
