This is a very attractive and mostly mid-grade collection of low-number cards from the 1952 Topps series, one of card collecting’s most popular classics and representing a substantial start toward a complete low-number run. The equivalent SMR value for just the twelve SGC-graded cards (factoring in the two half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $750. Total: 295 cards (partial low-number run of 234 plus 61 duplicates). Reserve $500.
