1956 Topps Football Complete PSA-Graded Set (121) Including Checklist

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,000

Presented is an extremely crisp, high-quality, and high-grade complete set of 1956 Topps Football, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for three SGC). The set is highlighted by twenty-six different Hall of Famers, including Frank Gifford, Bobby Layne, and six Hall of Fame rookie cards, as well as more than twenty short prints, which can make the assembly of a complete set difficult for collectors. Also included is the scarce checklist. This classic issue features full-color photos on front set against bold backgrounds, with the player's name and team printed underneath and the team logo in one of the top corners. The reverses feature biographical and statistical information as well as illustrated football trivia. This particular set has been carefully assembled over a period of several years by a dedicated collector with an overall focus on eye-appeal. This set consists of one MINT 9 (qualified), fourteen NM-MT 8s, six NM+ 7.5s, ninety-nine NM 7s, and one EX 5. Approximately half of the set consists of cards from our consignor's childhood collection that have been personally submitted by him for grading.
