    1956 Topps Baseball High Grade Complete Set (340). Mickey Mantle called 1956 "My Favorite Summer," a characterization that should surprise few given his Triple Crown heroics and the Yankee World Series victory highlighted by Don Larsen's perfect game. The presented set pays apt tribute to the historic season, with an impressive high-grade theme throughout. A total of 157 cards have been slabbed by SGC, with an aggregate SMR value of $19,225, almost 40% achieving an SGC 88 NM/MT or higher.
