Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,500
22% Ex-Mt (including a few Nr/Mt), 64% Ex, and 14% Vg-Ex (including some lesser). Presented is a beautiful complete set of 1957 Topps baseball consisting of 407 cards and one checklist. 1957 Topps has always been very popular due to its classic photographic style and inclusion of so many stars. This is a particularly attractive complete set, bright and crisp throughout, with centering or very hard-to-see wrinkles responsible for the downgrades on cards that otherwise appear much better. Twelve cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA or SGC. Keys: #1 Ted Williams (PSA NM-MT 8 [OC]), 2 Berra (Ex), 7 Aparicio (Ex), 10 Mays (Vg-Ex+), 15 Roberts (Ex), 18 Drysdale RC (Ex), 20 Aaron (VG/EX+ 55), 24 Mazeroski RC (Ex), 25 Ford (Ex-Mt), 30 Reese (Ex), 35 F. Robinson RC (EX/NM 80), 38 Fox (Ex+), 40 Wynn (Vg-Ex+), 55 Banks (EX/NM 80), 62 Martin (Ex), 70 Ashburn (Vg-Ex+), 76 Clemente (EX/NM 80), 80 Hodges (Vg-Ex+), 85 Doby (Vg), 90 Spahn (Ex), 95 Mantle (EX 60), 97 Yankees Team (Vg-Ex+), 114 Braves Team (PSA EX-MT 6), 120 Lemon (Ex), 125 Kaline (NM 84), 130 Newcombe (Vg-Ex), 154 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex), 165 Kluszewski (Ex), 170 Snider (Vg-Ex), 203 Wilhelm (Ex), 210 Campanella (Ex), 212 Colavito RC (Ex), 215 Slaughter (Ex+), 230 Kell (Ex), 250 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 286 Richardson RC (Ex+), 302 Koufax (EX/NM 80), 312 Kubek RC (Ex+), 317 Giants Team (Ex-Mt), 324 Dodgers Team (Ex+), 328 B. Robinson RC (NM 84), 338 Bunning RC (Ex), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (Vg-Ex+), 407 Mantle/Berra (EX+ 70), and Checklist 1/2 (PSA EX 5). This is a very strong set, crisp and sharp throughout, with bright, bold colors. Stunning complete sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. The total SMR value for just eleven of the twelve graded cards (excluding the qualified Williams and also not including the 396 ungraded cards!) is $1,752. Total: 408 cards (complete set of 407 plus one checklist). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+. SOLD FOR $4,500
