For a hand-held assortment of world-famous luminaries from throughout history, one could do no better than to own this charming and artistically exceptional Topps set of the post-war era. Presenting explorers, scientists, political leaders, writers, artists, and other notable personalities of American and world history, this issue seamlessly ties together themed backdrops with the portrayed likenesses, e.g., a galaxy behind Einstein, Egyptian script behind Cleopatra, etc. In addition, the most unique feature of this set (and the reasoning behind the "Look 'n See" title) is the ability of each card to reveal on its reverse, when viewed through a piece of red cellophane, an illustrated answer to a "Look 'n See" question. The key card, #82 Rembrandt is in desirable PSA NM 7 (MC) condition! Highlights include: #'s 1 F. Roosevelt (GD), 15 Babe Ruth (EX), 20 Albert Einstein (EX), 30 Charles Lindbergh (GD), 45 Amelia Earhart (VG), 82 Rembrandt (PSA NM 7 MC) and 112 Rockefeller (EX/MT). Grades 70% EX to EX/MT with a few nicer, 30% VG to VG/EX with some lesser and one trimmed.
