1956 Topps Near-Complete Set (310/340) Plus 277 Duplicates! (587 Cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,160

Superb near-complete set of 310 different cards (out of 340) from the 1956 Topps baseball issue, highlighted by nineteen Hall of Famers, including Al Kaline, Bob Feller, and Roberto Clemente. Also included are 277 duplicates for a total of 587 cards. This is a very crisp and clean collection, grading 21% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt, 44% Ex, 21% Vg-Ex, and 14% lesser (averaging Gd). Keys: Two #1 Harridge (Vg and Vg-Ex), 2 Giles (Ex-Mt), two 8 Alston (Vg-Ex and miscut, otherwise Ex), 15 Banks (Ex), 20 Kaline (Ex), 33 Clemente (Ex), 109 Slaughter (Vg), 113 Rizzuto (Vg+), two 118 Fox (both Ex), two 165 Schoendienst (Ex and 98/2 T/B, otherwise Ex), 181 Martin (Vg-Ex), two 187 Wynn (Ex and Vg+), 194 Irvin (Vg-Ex+), 195 Kell (Vg-Ex), 200 Feller (Vg-Ex), 240 Ford (Ex), two 250 Doby (Ex and miscut, otherwise Ex), two 255 Lemon (Ex and 100/0 T/B, otherwise Ex), 260 Reese (90/10 T/B and L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), and 307 Wilhelm (5/95 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt). An extremely attractive collection that would provide an outstanding foundation for the assembly of a mid- to high-grade complete set, with hundreds of extra cards (ideal as traders to help complete set #1, to use as the foundation to assemble a second set, or, of course, for use on the playground!). This is an extremely huge group that no doubt represented unfathomable riches on the playground in 1956! Total: 587 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,160
