Topps first standard sized offering (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") and an iconic set for the company; the 1957 set used a simple split card design which is a collector's favorite to this day.

Our consignor assembled this set raw with quality in mind; ultimately submitting a few dozen cards for third party evaluation.

The group contains 156 total cards (33 graded/123 raw) including the checklist, both #58 Sherman cards (error and corrected) and duplicates of cards #59 and #67 (each with one example graded and the other raw). An example of the wax wrapper is also included as part of this lot. Missing for completion are the Unitas and Starr cards which are offered as separate lots in this auction.

The following cards have been graded:

BVG 8 NM-MT: #6 Nomellini, #16 Johnson, #18 St. Clair, #22 Van Brocklin, #28 Groza, #47 Heinrich, #62 Olszewski, #81 Rote, #128 Moore, #134 James

BVG 7.5 NM+: #14 Summerall, #34 Wade, #49 Bednarik, #88 Gifford, #153 Svoboda

BVG 7 NM: #3 McCormack, #30 Tittle, #31 Blanda, #32 Layne, #65 Donovan, #69 Forester, #71 Robustelli, #90 Lansford, #96 Jones, #121 Webster

SGC 84/7: #67 Hill

BVG 6.5 EX-MT+: #59 Rote, #94 Berry

BVG 6 EXMT: #1 LeBaron,#26 Matson, #154 Morrison

BVG 5.5 EX+: #151 Hornung

BVG 5 EX: #58A Sherman error

The remainder of the cards (123) are ungraded and have been conservatively assessed for condition. One (1) card (checklist) is in fair condition due to erased pencil marks, 18% of the cards are VG to VGEX mainly due to centering issues, 26% are excellent, 17% are EX+, 33% are EXMT, and 6% are NRMT.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: The checklist in this fantastic group of cards is the more rare Twin Blony backed version (as opposed to the more commonly found Bazooka).
