    1956 Topps Football Partial Set (84/120) Plus CL and Contest Card - Original Owner Collection! ! This collection comes to us consigned from the original owner who pulled them from wax packs back in the 1950's-60's and didn't seem to have handled them very much at all. To quote another veteran hobbyist, they have that "minty" feel to them. Characteristics of this collection are quality corners, glossy, virtually problem-free surface and fresh gloss. And this is consistent throughout leaving a visual feast for the eyes. Will these cards get you a high rank on a set registry? No, but if you want for your collection quality cards that have that "fresh from the pack" appeal, this is a collection that is for you! Note there may be an unobtrusive press roller mark or wax stain on the reverse and wrinkles/creases are at a minimum. Centering is the most common factor in determining a final grade. Highlights include: #'s 1 Carson SP (VG/EX), 6 Van Brocklin (VG), 9 Groza (EX/MT), 13 Janowicz SP (EX/MT), 28 Bednarik (EX), 32 Dibble (PSA NM 7), 41 Brown (EX), 44 Schmidt (EX), 47 George (VG/EX), 49 LeBaron SP (EX), 50 McElhenny (EX), 53 Gifford (VG/EX), 60 Moore (miscut), 77 Conerly (VG/EX), 78 Hirsch (EX/MT), 86 Tittle (EX), 101 Grier (EX), 104 Hart (PSA EX-MT 6), 110 Perry (EX), 116 Layne (EX), 120 Vessels (EX), Checklist (miscut) and Contest Card (VG-). Total 86 cards. Grades 80% EX to EX/MT (mainly due to centering), 20% VG to VG/EX (with a few lesser (pencil) and a handful miscut).
