Description

    1952 Topps Baseball Complete Set (407). The undisputed king of the post-war era, it is conceivable that this first major effort by Topps is their finest. Joining the T206 tobacco issue and the 1933 Goudey set, they combine to form the hobby's "Big Three." Far from just a coming out party for the industry's most recognizable baseball card purveyor, the 1952 issue holds the most coveted rookie in the game, Mickey Mantle, as well as cards featuring fellow period legends Mays, Mathews, Snider, Campanella and Robinson. All of the 97 high numbers have been graded. Includes: Graded - PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, #330; PSA EX 5: 4 cards, #345, 348, 383 and 386; PSA VG-EX 4: 5 cards, #'s 339, 341, 369 Groat, 376 and 395 (MK); PSA VG 3: 18 cards, #'s 314 Campanella, 329, 334, 344 Blackwell, 347 Adcock, 349 (MC), 350, 354, 370, 374, 381, 382 Jones, 390, 394 Herman, 397, 400 Dickey, 401 and 407 Mathews (MC); PSA Good 2: 28 cards, #'s 312 Robinson, 316, 318, 320, 322, 323, 325, 335, 337, 352, 357 Burgess, 358, 359, 361, 362, 366, 367 (MK), 373, 375, 379, 385 Franks, 388, 391, 396 Williams, 399, 403, 404 and 406; PSA PR-FR 1: 41 cards, #'s 311 Mantle, 313 Thomson, 315 Durocher, 317, 319, 321 Black, 324, 326, 327, 328, 331, 332, 333 Reese, 336, 338, 340, 342, 343, 346, 351 dark, 353, 355, 356, 360, 363, 364, 365, 368, 371, 372 McDougald, 377, 378, 380, 384 Crosetti, 387, 389, 392 Wilhelm, 393, 398, 402 and 405.
