1952 Topps #407 Eddie Mathews PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,200

Graded EX 5 by PSA. In addition to being his rookie card, 1952 Topps card #407 Eddie Mathews is also one of only a few key Hall of Famers in the rare high-number series, and as the last card in the set, is also a condition rarity. Just as card #1 Pafko was subject to wear due to gravitating to the top of the pile, #407 Mathews was also subject to excessive wear at the bottom of the pile. In anything even resembling high grade, this has always been a very difficult card to find for anyone putting together a quality 1952 Topps set. The offered card is crisp and clean, with bold colors, light touches of wear to the corners, and very faint traces of surface wear to the left of Mathews' face and in the top left corner. Centered to the left (approximately 15/85 L/R), this card is frequently encountered with side-to-side centering issues. The reverse of the card is perfectly clean. Extremely attractive (and, for this card, exceptionally high grade) example of this important condition rarity that would be at home in any high-grade 1952 Topps set or classic-card collection.  Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $4,200
