1952 Berk Ross Complete Set (72)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,040
Complete 72-card set of 1952 Berk Ross. 44% Ex or better, 25% Vg-Ex, 13% Vg, and 18% lesser. 1952 Berk Ross is a fascinating set, as it includes Joe DiMaggio's final traditional trading card as a player, and also Mickey Mantle in the same pose as his 1951 Bowman rookie card. The 1952 Berk Ross cards are similar in design to the 1951 Berk Ross card set, though slightly different in dimensions (they are larger and vertical in format) and the set was issued as individual cards instead of the perforated two-card panel design from the previous year. Keys: Ashburn (Vg+), Berra (Ex+), Campanella (Vg+), Collins (Gd), Dom DiMaggio (Ex), Joe DiMaggio (Vg-Ex), Doby (Vg-Ex+), Doerr (Ex), Feller (Ex+), Fox (Ex-Mt), Hodges (Vg+), Irvin (Ex), Kell (Vg-Ex), Kiner (Gd), Lemon (Vg-Ex), Mantle (Gd), Martin (Nr/Mt), Mays (Ex), Mize (pinhole, otherwise Ex+), Musial (Vg), Reese (Vg-Ex), Rizzuto/bunting (Vg-Ex), Rizzuto/swinging (Ex), Roberts (Ex), Jackie Robinson (90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex+), Schoendienst (Gd+), Snider (Vg-Ex), and Ted Williams (Gd+). This is a very attractive midgrade complete set of this substantial early 1950s issue. The 1952 Berk Ross set is among the most interesting and overlooked sets of the era. It is also far rarer than collectors realize. (Unlike the 1951 set, there were never any 1952 sets available from Bruce Yeko's Wholesale Cards.) Total: 72 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,040
