Description

Baseball cards have been around for more than a century but it was not until 1952 that companies began producing large format cards and even larger sets. Bowman and Topps vied for supremacy as well as for the exclusive contracts of the game’s biggest stars. In the 1953 Topps series, six cards were not issued due to these contract disputes. Presented is a complete 1953 Topps Baseball complete set of (274) cards in off-grade. The mere fact that this set is complete will draw considerable attention because this is a marquee set among collectors in any grade. The key cards in this off-grade set include #1 Jackie Robinson (FR), #27 Campanella (GD-VG), #37 Mathews (PR), #54 Feller (GD), #76 Reese (GD), #82 Mantle (BVG 2.5), #86 Billy Martin (GD), #104 Berra (PR), #114 Rizzuto (VG), #138 Kell (VG), #147 Spahn (VG), #191 Kiner (VG), #207 Whitey Ford (GD), #220 Paige (GD), #244 Mays (PR), #254 Preacher Roe (VG-EX o/c) and #280 Milt Bolling RC (GD).
