    1952 Topps Baseball Near Set (405/407). The undisputed king of the post-war era, the first major Topps baseball promotion joins the T206 tobacco issue and the 1933 Goudey set among 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 in the hobby as well as cards featuring period legends Mays, Feller, Snider, Spahn, Campanella and Robinson. Missing Mantle and Mathews for completion. A total of 56 cards have been graded by SGC.
