It is expensive to encapsulate a complete set with hundreds of cards, but the grading of 114 cards in this set represents a significant investment and substantial selection. Bright and crisp complete set of this classic 1950s issue with, as can easily be seen, many significant condition highlights throughout. This is a beautiful set! Aside from a few centering problems here and there, this set has a Near Mint appearance throughout! Bright, crisp, and fresh. The total SMR value for just the 114 graded cards (not including the 382 ungraded cards!) is $7,533. Total: 496 cards (complete set of 494 plus contest card and felt emblems insert). SOLD FOR $9,000
