    Description

    Signed 1958 Topps Baseball Near Set (451/494). This is a very special presentation. The 1958 Topps baseball set is without question a classic issue from the golden age of baseball cards. The set is numbered to 495 but complete at 494 cards as card #145 was never issued. Here we present a near complete set of 451 cards. What is so special is that every card is autographed by the featured player! Not to be left out, even team cards boast an autograph. Dual-player cards are signed not by just one player but each player. Assembled over a period best described by decades over mere years, this was obviously a labor of love by our consignor and would be close to impossible to recreate today. The quality of the signatures falls in the "NM 7" to "Gem 10" range with some lesser. Twenty-nine signatures have been encapsulated/graded by PSA/DNA. Ten cards have inscriptions, almost twenty have a salutation. With a few red exceptions, autographs are in blue or black and signed in marker or ink pen. Includes: PSA/DNA Auto 10: 12 cards, #'s 25 Drysdale, 30 Aaron/White Letters, 83 Hazle, 150 Mantle, 187 Koufax, 288 Killebrew, 325 Adcock, 400 Fox, 434 Kuenn, 440 Mathews, 488 Aaron AS, 487 Mantle AS; PSA/DNA Auto 9: 13 cards, #'s 162 Hodges, 215 Gilliam, 270 Spahn, 271 Martin, 285 F. Robinson, 304 Kuenn/Kaline, 351 Crandall/Mathews/Aaron/Adcock, 418 Mantle/Aaron, 424 Doby, 448 Lau, 479 Fox AS, 485 Williams AS, 489 Jensen AS; PSA/DNA Auto 8: 3 cards, #'s 252, 321 Williams/Klu and 386 Bailey/Tebbts/Robinson; PSA/DNA Auto 7: 1 card, #178 Kluszewski. This is a very rare chance to add a 1950's vintage baseball set with over 450 individual signatures includes multiple examples of Hank Aaron, Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle plus a lengthy number of more obscure players whose autographs are not found very often. Deemed secretarial: Bert Hamric, Pete Whisenant, Roman Mejias, Dick Brown, Phil Paine, Vada Pinson, Dixie Howell, Don Bessent, Ralph Lumenti, Al Cicotte, Don Newcombe, Whammy Douglas, Ray Shearer, Larry Raines, Willie Jones, Danny O' Connell, Jim Bunning, Clint Courtney, Dick Farrell, Don Zimmer, Ray Moore, Willie Kirkland.
