1957 to 1959 Topps Hockey Complete Set Run (3 Sets, 198 Cards)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $5,400
Presented are three complete Topps hockey sets spanning the years 1957 to 1959 that are loaded with numerous Hall of Famers and stars, including Bobby Hull, Terry Sawchuk, and Gordie Howe. We have selected eight cards to be graded by SGC. 1) 1957-1958 Set (66 cards): Condition is 88% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt and 12% Ex (includes a couple slightly lesser). Keys: #10 Bucyk RC (Ex), 20 Hall RC (EX/MT+ 82), 21 Lindsay (Nr/Mt), 22 Pilote RC (Ex-Mt), 35 Sawchuk (EX/NM 80), 42 Howe (EX/MT+ 82), 46 Ullman RC (EX/MT+ 82), and 53 Worsley (Ex-Mt). 2) 1958-1959 Set (66 cards): Condition is 63% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt and 37% Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). Keys: #2 Sawchuk (Ex-Mt+), 8 Howe (EX+ 70), 13 Hall (Ex-Mt), 30 Shack RC (Nr/Mt), 36 Pilote (Nr/Mt-Mt), 39 Worsley (Ex), 40 Bucyk (Ex-Mt+), 65 Ullman (Ex-Mt+), and 66 Hull RC (VG/EX+ 55). 3) 1959-1960 Set (66 cards): Condition is 55% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt and 45% Ex (almost entirely due to centering). Keys: #15 Worsley (Ex-Mt+), 23 Bucyk (Ex), 42 Sawchuk (Ex-Mt+), 45 Ullman (Ex-Mt), 47 Hull (SGC Authentic), 48 Howe In Action (Nr/Mt), 57 Shack (Ex), and 63 Howe (NM+ 86). This is an extremely attractive collection of sets with countless highlights from this popular era. All cards are bright, crisp, and clean, with centering the only flaw on many of the cards. The equivalent SMR value for just six of the graded cards (excluding Hull's rookie graded VG/EX+ 45, the one card graded "Authentic," and not including the 190 ungraded cards!) is $1,305. Total: 3 sets, 198 cards.
Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $5,400
