    Description

    1953 Topps Baseball High Grade Complete Set (274). The second great Topps baseball set was the first ever to include baseball trivia on the backs, a tradition that has continued to this day. But perhaps the greatest baseball trivia question of all might be how a set five and a half decades old could survive in such remarkable condition as the one presented here. This magical offering should thrill even the most discerning of cardboard collectors. A total of 147 cards have been graded by SGC with an aggregate SMR value of $32,472. Highlights include: Graded Cards - SGC 96 MINT 9: 10 cards w/#'s 26, 35, 42, 53, 58, 73, 103, 117, 139 and 242; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 27 cards w/#'s 5, 8, 22, 36, 38, 39, 64, 66 Minoso, 74, 111 Sauer, 113, 118, 124, 127, 133, 134, 148, 167, 206, 208, 212, 214, 233, 235, 239, 240 and 241; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 52 cards w/#'s 3, 6, 10 Burgess SP, 12, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25 Boone, 29, 33, 40, 43 McDougald, 45, 52, 63, 68, 80, 86 Martin, 89, 92, 95, 96, 104 Berra, 108, 110, 114 Rizzuto, 115, 116, 121, 132, 136, 137, 138 Kell, 142, 147 Spahn, 149 DiMaggio, 157, 170, 172, 177, 178, 185, 187, 196, 211, 213, 234, 246 Face, 263 Podres and 278; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 17 cards w/#'s 54 Feller, 71, 79, 84, 102, 106 SP, 122, 144, 158, 176, 180, 182, 191 Kiner, 229, 248, 273 Haddix and 277; SGC 84 NM 7: 29 cards w/#'s 13, 14 Labine, 16, 27 Campanella, 37 Mathews, 55, 61 Wynn SP, 62 Irvin, 77 Mize, 81 Black SP,88, 91, 99, 120, 135 Rosen, 141 Reynolds, 143, 145, 151 Wilhelm, 164, 168, 181, 200, 216, 220 Paige, 224, 232, 254 Roe and 255; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 10 cards w/#'s 1 Robinson, 18, 21, 46, 69, 76 Reese, 82 Mantle, 119 Sain, 186, 226 and 280 Bolling; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 1 card, #244 Mays.
