Each card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. Admiration for the 1952 Topps set is universal and generously expressed within the collectibles industry. Its virtues are well-extolled and its beauty is appreciated by all. The set's large-card size, its incomparable portrayals, and its fantastic, period line-up combine to perpetuate a glowing reverence that continues year after year, and, indeed, seems to gather momentum with every high-profile price realized and with every mention of the series' elite character. So what's a merely mortal collector to do, simply view the production from a distance and ache wistfully about opportunities lost? The set has been elevated by hobby media to the extent that its grandeur has become, well...intimidating. Offered is the solution to this increasingly daunting circumstance. This 1952 Topps collection features more than one-half of a full set, with every piece graded EX 5 or better (some, much better) by PSA. Every element that makes the '52 set so dear to enthusiasts' hearts is here: included are rookies, Hall of Famers, stars and minor stars, "High Numbers" and key images. The release's splendor is presented, within this group, to a highly satisfying degree. No creases are apparent in viewing the assembly, and a "clean" overall appearance is readily apparent to the observer. An exceptional gathering, this accessible, "collector friendly" gallery includes: Graded PSA MINT 9 (OC): 1 card, #108 Konstanty; PSA NM-MT 8: 3 cards w/#'s 92, 234 and 296; PSA NM-MT 8 (MC): 1 card, #233 Friend; PSA NM-MT 8 (OC): 2 cards w/#'s 239 and 244 Wertz; PSA NM 7: 21 cards w/#'s 44 (BB), 57 Lopat, 81 Law, 85, 89, 117, 149, 158, 164, 195 Minoso, 197, 205, 213, 218, 230, 236, 242, 271, 276, 291 and 373; PSA NM 7 (OC): 3 cards w/#'s 26 Irvin, 231 and 252; PSA EX-MT 6: 85 cards w/#'s 2 Runnels (BB), 3, 4 (BB), 8, 9, 21 Fain (BB), 24 Easter (BB), 32, 34 (BB), 43, 45, 48 Page COR, 55, 59 Roberts, 61, 62, 71, 73, 76 Stanky (BB), 78 (BB), 84, 91 Schoendienst, 100, 102, 110, 111, 120, 121, 123, 125, 126, 129 Mize, 137, 138, 139, 144, 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, 159, 163, 165, 169, 171, 174, 175 Martin, 177, 178, 179, 181, 185, 188, 189 Reiser, 194, 198, 204, 206, 207, 208, 210, 214, 216 Ashburn, 220, 223 Ennis, 224, 226, 227 Garagiola, 229, 249, 253 Berardino, 254, 256, 258, 259, 262, 273, 283, 284, 286, 288, 300, 309 and 316; PSA EX-MT 6 (OC): 3 cards w/#'s 36 Hodges, 237 and 241; PSA EX 5: 87 cards w/#'s 13 (BB), 25 (BB), 27, 28, 40, 46 (BB), 47, 49 Sain COR (BB), 54, 58 (BB), 60, 63, 72, 82, 86, 95, 99 Woodling, 101, 103, 106, 109, 113, 115, 122 Jensen, 124, 127, 128, 130, 131, 132, 134, 135, 136, 140, 142, 143, 145, 147, 148, 156, 157, 160, 161, 162, 166, 167, 168, 170, 172, 173, 176, 180, 183, 184, 190, 196, 209, 212, 215 Bauer, 217, 219 Shantz, 221, 222, 225, 228, 232 Cox, 235, 238, 243 Doby, 245, 247, 248, 257, 260, 265, 270, 272 Garcia, 278, 279, 282, 292, 293, 303, 304, 307, 382 Jones and 404.
