1952 Topps #406 Eddie Mathews
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,560
Graded VG 40 by SGC (submitted by REA). 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, which is one of the highlights of an original-owner collection consigned to this auction, is entirely crisp, with bold colors, a flawless image, and honest wear at the four corners. Centered to the left as is common with this card, which is frequently encountered with side-to-side centering issues. Clean reverse. Extremely presentable example that would be at home in any 1952 Topps set or classic-card collection. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
