    1953-55 Topps Baseball Collection (108). Offered is a 108-card collection of 1953, '54 and 1955 Topps baseball cards that have been hidden away for over half a century and are consigned to us from the original collector who pulled them from packs in 1952. This lot contains very, very light duplication and offers some nice looking cards as colors and gloss have remained strong. Most cards (95%) have some pencil markings. The marks are on the front and/or the new team name was been written as well. For a few, this process involved a position change. All but a few have pencil marks on the reverse as well where the team or position was written over. Includes: 1953 Topps (52) - including #'s 41 Slaughter, 191 Kiner, 227 Martin (2), 228 Newhouser, 233, 263 Podres (color added), 264 Woodling and 265 Jensen (2). Pencil marks aside, the cards would grade 75% EX to EX/MT, 25% VG to VG/EX with one color added; 1954 Topps (41) - including #'s 7 Kluszewski (FR), 45 Ashburn (GD), 50 Berra (PR), 70 Doby (2: EX+ w/pencil, FR), 85 Turley and 239 Skowron (PR). Pencil marks aside, the cards would grade 61% EX to EX/MT, 39% VG to VG/EX with some lesser; 1955 Topps (15) - including #'s 120 Kluszewski (faint pencil), 161, 162, 191. Pencil marks aside, the cards would grade 67% EX to EX/MT, 33% lesser.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
