1956 Topps "Elvis Presley" Complete Set (66): #5 PSA Set Registry (8.08 GPA)!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,600

Presented is an extraordinary ultra high-grade complete set of 1956 Topps "Elvis Presley" trading cards, one of nonsport card collecting's great classics. It seems only natural that Topps would honor the "King" with his own card set. These cards were issued under the Topps "Bubbles, Inc." brand name. This is by far the finest Elvis set we have ever offered. The entire set of sixty-six cards has been graded and encapsulated by PSA and consists of five MINT 9s and sixty-one NM-MT 8s. The set currently ranks fifth on the PSA Set Registry with an incredible average grade of 8.08. Nineteen of the sixty-six cards are the highest-graded examples on record! PSA Grading Composite: Five MINT 9: #5, 19, 23, 37, and 50. Sixty-one NM-MT 8: #1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, and 66. This is a remarkably crisp, fresh, high-grade complete set of one of the most popular of all 1950s nonsport issues. Elvis' enormous significance, to the 1950s and to popular culture in general, makes this set of great interest to many different types of collectors. This set is one of the finest and highest-graded complete sets ever assembled. The total SMR value for the individual cards is $7,690, and this does not begin to take into account the time and effort required to assemble a set in this grade. Total: 66 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $6,600
