Autographed 1952 Topps Baseball-Card Partial Set (285) - All PSA/DNA Graded and Encapsulated!
Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $10,800
Presented is a tremendous collection of 285 autographed 1952 Topps cards, consisting of 228 different autographed cards plus fifty-seven autographed variations, highlighted by twenty Hall of Famers and both red- and black-back variations of #1 Andy Pafko. All 285 cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA/DNA (red labels with card grades). This collection represents approximately fifty-six percent of a complete set and nearly seventy-four percent of a low-number run (#1-310). The fifty-seven signed variations represent red- or black-back variations of the eighty low-number cards (#1-80). 1952 Topps is the ultimate postwar baseball-card set. A completely autographed set is unheard of, but if ever assembled would certainly be co nsidered by many as the ultimate autographed postwar baseball-card set. Keys: Two #1 Pafko, two 2 Runnels, 11 Rizzuto (black back), two 20 Loes RC, two 22 DiMaggio, two 26 Irvin, two 29 Kluszewski, two 33 Spahn, two 37 Snider, two 49 Sain, two 57 Lopat, two 59 Roberts, two 65 Slaughter, two 66 Roe, two 67 Reynolds, 88 Feller, 91 Schoendienst, 99 Woodling, 122 Jensen, 129 Mize, 191 Berra, 195 Minoso, 200 Houk, 215 Bauer, 216 Ashburn, 227 Garagiola, 243 Doby, 246 Kell, 250 Erskine, 268 Lemon, 274 Branca, and 277 Wynn. The offered collection is 182 cards shy of being a complete set. A complete list of the cards in this collection is available upon request. All 285 cards have been signed and the signatures range in grade from "4" to "10," averaging "8." Condition of the cards ranges from Poor to Near Mint, averaging Very Good. It should be noted that many of the key signers are now deceased. This is an extremely attractive and substantial partial set of one of card collecting's greatest and most revered classics, in an extraordinary, completely autographed form. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 285 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000+. SOLD FOR $10,800
