1956 Topps Complete Set (340 Plus Checklist)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $5,100

9% Nr/Mt, 30% Ex-Mt, 50% Ex, and 11% Vg-Ex (with some lesser, mostly Vg). This is a very attractive complete set of 1956 Topps, one of the great classics of the decade, in outstanding mid to high grade. We have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Harridge (Ex), 5 Williams (PSA EX-MT 6), 10 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 15 Banks (Ex), 20 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 25 Kluszewski (Ex-Mt), 30 Robinson (PSA EX-MT 6), 31 Aaron (Ex), 33 Clemente (PSA NM 7), 79 Koufax (PSA EX-MT 6), 101 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 107 Mathews (Ex+), 110 Berra (ink mark on front, otherwise Ex-Mt), 113 Rizzuto (Ex), 118 Fox (Ex+), 120 Ashburn (Nr/Mt), 130 Mays (PSA EX-MT 6), 135 Mantle (PSA VG 3, downgraded for a horizontal roller mark that runs across the center of the card), 145 Hodges (Ex), 150 Snider (Ex-Mt+), 164 Killebrew (Ex-Mt), 166 Dodgers (Ex), 180 Roberts (Ex+), 181 Martin (Ex), 200 Feller (Ex-Mt+), 240 Ford (Ex-Mt), 251 Yankees (Ex), 260 Reese (Ex-Mt), 292 Aparicio RC (Ex). Included with the set is one unnumbered checklist card: 2/4 Checklist (Gd). This is a beautifully assembled, very consistent set. Crisp, clean, fresh 1950s sets like this that are in beautiful overall Ex to Nr/Mt condition (but fall short of far more expensive Nr/Mt-Mt condition) are naturally always extremely popular with collectors and represent a particularly outstanding collecting value. The SMR value for just five of the six graded cards (excluding the VG 3 #135 Mantle and also not including the 335 ungraded cards!) is $1,230. Total: 341 cards (set of 340 plus one checklist). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,100
