    1957 Topps Baseball - #1 on the SGC Set Registry!


    A historic issue in its status as the first Topps issue to utilize photography, the 1957 set has long been a favorite among collectors with a concentration in the bubble gum era.  Few members of that breed could honestly boast ownership of representations at the elite level that we find in the lots that follow, however.  Collectively these lots generate a Grade Point Average of a staggering 91.3, a score just shy of a NM/MT+ average.  This offering sets itself apart with over 130 cards graded 96 Mint 9, including baseball legends Ted Williams (card #1), Mickey Mantle and Sandy Koufax. Almost fifty from this class of ninety-six hold the ultimate "Pop One of One" status, assigning the winning bidder the ultimate bragging right.
