1952 Topps Original-Owner Collection (70) Including Mays and 14 High Numbers

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,700

Collection of seventy different cards from the legendary 1952 Topps series, highlighted by several Hall of Famers, including Willie Mays, and fourteen scarce high-number cards, including Hall of Famer Pee Wee Reese. It is fascinating to note that these cards have been consigned to this auction directly by the original owner who purchased them in packs in 1952! (His other cards, including a 1952 Topps #311 Mantle and 1952 Topps #407 Mathews, appear elsewhere in this auction.) The low numbers range in grade from Pr to Vg (mostly Fr-Gd). The high numbers are individually graded below. Three cards are graded by SGC (submitted by REA). This collection consists of the following: #3, 5, 15, 20 Loes (Pr/Fr), 23, 30, 31, 64, 69, 78, 81, 84, 85, 88 Feller (HOF, VG+ 45), 112, 116, 117, 120, 123, 124, 125, 129 Mize (HOF, Fr), 130, 158, 168, 174, 185, 188, 197, 206, 211, 217, 221, 226, 228, 230, 232, 241, 251, 254, 255, 256, 260, 261 Mays (HOF, GOOD 30), 263, 265, 267, 275, 278, 282, 283, 300, 303, 304, 310, 322 Jackson (Gd+), 323 Church (Vg), 324 Hacker (Gd), 333 Reese (HOF, VG 40), 347 Adcock (Gd+), 351 Dark (Vg), 352 Drews (Vg), 353 Del Greco (Pr), 354 Hatfield (Vg), 356 Atwell (Vg+), 358 Kucab (Vg), 360 Crowe (Vg), 363 Rozek (Vg), 371 Hofman (Vg), and 388 Chipman (Vg+). This collection is in modest condition overall, but includes many highlights and provides an outstanding opportunity to acquire a relatively affordable foundation for the assembly of a complete set of the classic 1952 Topps issue. Total: 70 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $2,700
