1957 Topps Baseball Set w/ Checklist Series 1/2 (EX-MT+)
Complete at 407 cards. The first ever, standard sized Topps issue. Set features many of the game’s all time greats and several key rookie cards. A very scarce UNMARKED Series 1/2 Checklist (EX-MT/NRMT) is also included. Very conservatively graded, this set averages EX-MT+ with many, many cards being NRMT or better. Several of the higher-grade examples include #7 Luis Aparicio (NM-MT), 250 Eddie Mathews (NM-MT to Mint), 287 Bobby Richardson rookie (NRMT), 312 Tony Kubek rookie (NRMT), and 338 Jim Bunning rookie (NRMT). The keys grade as follows: #1 Ted Williams (VG-EX, surface crease), 2 Berra (EX-MT), 10 Mays (NRMT), 18 Drysdale rookie (EX-MT), 20 Aaron (NRMT, o/c), 35 Frank Robinson rookie (EX-MT to NRMT), 76 Clemente (NRMT+), 95 Mantle (EX-MT), 212 Colavito rookie (NRMT), 302 Koufax (NRMT-), 328 Brooks Robinson rookie (EX-MT to NRMT), 400 Dodgers Sluggers (NRMT, o/c), and Yankees Power Hitters – Mantle/Berra – Last Card In Set (EX-MT-). A highly desirable and very popular set.
