1958 Topps Complete Set (494)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,851
8% Nr/Mt (including a few better), 21% Ex-Mt, 43% Ex, 17% Vg-Ex, and 11% lesser. The classic 1958 Topps set features all the great stars of the era, in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again on special multiplayer cards or in the All-Star series (#476-494). This is a very attractive set consigned to this auction by the family of an old-time collector. Also included are three yellow-letter variations. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 T. Williams (Vg-Ex+), 2 Lemon (Nr/Mt, yellow team), 5 Mays (1/99 L/R, otherwise Ex), 25 Drysdale (Ex), 30 Aaron (Vg-Ex), 40 Kell (Nr/Mt), 47 Maris RC (Pr/Fr), 52 Clemente (NM/MT 88, yellow team), 70 Kaline (Ex+), 71 Dodgers Team (Ex-Mt), 85 Aparicio (Vg), 88 Snider (Gd), 90 Roberts (Vg), 100 Wynn (Vg), 142 Slaughter (Nr/Mt-Mt), 150 Mantle (VG/EX 50), 162 Hodges (Ex), 187 Koufax (Vg), 230 Ashburn (Ex), 238 Mazeroski (Nr/Mt), 246 Yankees Team (Nr/Mt), 270 Spahn (Ex), 271 Martin (Vg-Ex+), 285 F. Robinson (Ex), 288 Killebrew (Ex-Mt+), 307 B. Robinson (Vg+), 310 Banks (Ex+), 314 Snider/Alston (no right border, otherwise Ex), 320 Ford (Ex), 321 Williams/Klu (Vg-Ex), 343 Cepeda RC (Ex+), 351 Braves’ Fence Busters (Vg-Ex), 370 Berra (Ex-Mt), 375 Reese (Vg-Ex+), 400 Fox (Gd/Vg), 418 Mantle/Aaron (Vg-Ex+), 436 Mays/Snider (Ex), 440 Mathews (Ex), 476 Musial AS (Ex-Mt+), 482 Banks AS (Ex+), 485 T. Williams AS (Vg-Ex+), 486 Mays AS (NM 84), 487 Mantle AS (miscut back, otherwise Ex), 488 Aaron AS (Ex), and 494 Spahn (Ex+). Three yellow-letter variations for cards #8, 61, and 65 are also included. Nine other yellow letters are included in the set, but are not accompanied by their white-letter counterparts (#2 Lemon, 11, 24, 32, 52 Clemente, 53, 57, 58, and 101). While the condition of this set spans many grades, almost all the cards are bright and crisp with bold colors, with just a little corner wear or centering accounting for many of the downgrades. This is an extremely attractive complete set of this classic 1950s issue that is highlighted by so many Hall of Famers. The equivalent SMR value for just the graded Clemente and Mays AS (not including the VG/EX Mantle or the 491 ungraded cards!) is $1,885. Total: 497 cards (complete set of 494 plus three variations). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $3,851
