Nice partial set of collector-grade 1952 Topps baseball – the granddaddy of all Topps sets. All the low numbers (1-310) and over half the high numbers are present, as are most of the star cards – including Mays and Mantle. Many of the stars and specials have already been graded: #1 Pafko (PSA VG+ 3.5), 191 Berra (PSA FR 1.5), 261 Mays RC (PSA PR 1), 311 Mantle RC (PSA 3), 312 J. Robinson (PSA PR 1), 314 Campanella (PSA FR 1.5), 333 Reese (PSA FR 1.5) and 407 Mathews (PSA PR 1). Other graded cards include #133 Widmar GRAY BACK (PSA Min Size Rq), 153 Rush GRAY BACK (PSA FR 1.5), 373 Turner (PSA GOOD+ 2.5), and 406 Nuxhall (PSA FR 1.5). Of the low number cards, approx. 10% grade EX or better, 25% VG-EX, 35% VG, 20% GD-VG and 10% lesser. Of the tougher high numbers, 51 of 97 are present, and (aside from those listed above) grade 10 VG-EX, 9 VG, 11 GD-VG, 7 GD, and 7 lesser. The missing high numbers are: 315, 318, 319, 320, 324, 325, 331, 332, 334, 335, 339, 340, 341, 343, 345, 347, 348, 351, 353, 354, 356, 361, 363, 364, 368, 369, 370, 372, 374, 377, 378, 380, 382, 384, 386, 388, 392, 394, 396, 397, 398, 399, 400, 401, 403, and 404. Note that overall, about 12% of the cards have slight to moderate centering issues. A great start to a solid collector grade ’52 Topps set. Total of 361 cards.
