Listing Details

Classic and beloved Topps set, one of the most unique and interesting ever produced given the original artwork. Usually found in terrible condition, the offered set is a very respectable and well collected mid-grade exemplar. A difficult set to assign a single grade to as it is a good bit mixed on a technical level (slight creasing, minute corner flaws etc) but the cards present aesthetically as Ex overall. The high numbers are a step below the rest of the set, more like VG to VG-Ex but they still display well. With the recent price explosion, the value of just the graded Mantle, Mays and Paige cards is almost $2,000, providing for a break value in the $5,000 plus range (which also means it would certainly cost at least that much to build a comparable set). The many key cards are as follows: 1 J Robinson Ex, 27 Campanella Ex+, 37 Mathews VG+, 54 Feller Ex++, 61 Wynn Ex+, 76 Reese VG, 82 Mantle SGC 2.5 (bright card is well centered with no creases and clean, slight pencil or ink has been erased at the very top of the back, awfully nice card for the grade), 86 Martin Ex++ , 104 Berra VG, 114 Rizzuto VG, 147 Spahn VG-Ex/Ex, 191 Kiner Ex-Mt+, 207 Ford Ex, 220 Paige SGC 5, 225 Shantz GVG, 228 Newhouser VG+, 242 Silvera VG+, 244 Mays PSA 3.5, 258 Gilliam GVG, 263 Podres VG, 265 Jensen Good, 273 Haddix RC VG+ and 280 Bolling RC VG-Ex.
