This is a very attractive complete low-number run of 1952 Topps, one of card collecting’s most popular classics, in very desirable and relatively affordable grades (compared to the much higher values of higher-grade 1952 Topps cards). These 310 cards (#1-310) have been separated from an outstanding complete set consigned to this auction (all the high numbers are offered individually and in smaller group lots elsewhere in this sale) and, as can easily be seen, is an incredible low-number run as well as representing a very substantial start toward a remarkably high quality complete set. The total SMR value in the assigned grades (excluding the seventeen cards graded less than EX and factoring in the two half-grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $28,039. Total: 310 cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $20,000+. SOLD FOR $24,000
