Description

The offered pair of vintage Topps sets has fantastic eye appeal throughout, and a quick visual scan of the singles may place these sets among the best as each has only minor factory-related flaws on the outermost edges where the cards were connected originally as panels and light paper wrinkles. There are several singles in these sets that are simply stunning and there are a few that have light creasing. All things considered, the sets are very sharp and very clean; a fine pairing indeed. The 1951 Topps Blue Back Set of (52) cards is in overall NM or better condition and includes: #1 Eddie Yost (VG-EX), #3 Ashburn (NM-MT), #6 Schoendienst (NM), #9 Sain (NM-MT), #10 Page (VG-EX), #20 Branca (NM), #30 Slaughter (NM), #37 Doerr (NM-MT), #39 Lopat (NM-MT), #45 Pierce (NM-MT), #50 Mize (NM) and #52 Chapman (NM). The 1951 Topps Red Back Set of (52) includes both the #36 Zernial and #52 Holmes variations and is in overall EX-MT to NM condition with: #1 Berra (EX), #5 Rizzuto (EX-MT), #6 Reynolds (EX-MT), #8 Wynn (NM), #15 Kiner (NM-MT), #20 D. DiMaggio (EX-MT), #22 Feller (NM), #24 Bauer (NM), #30 Spahn (NM-MT), #31 Hodges (NM), #36 Zernial (both versions NM), #38 Snider (VG-EX), #39 Kluszewski (EX-MT), #50 Irvin (NM-MT) and #52 Holmes (both NM).
