Presented is a rarely offered near-complete high-number run (#311-407) from the classic 1952 Topps series, missing only #311 Mickey Mantle for completion. This group is highlighted by nine Hall of Famers, including Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Hoyt Wilhem (rookie), Bill Dickey, and Eddie Mathews (rookie). Missing only #311 Mickey Mantle for completion. Includes duplicates of #332 Bartirome and 351 Dark. Condition is 27% Vg-Ex to Ex (including a couple Ex-Mt), 52% Gd to Vg, and 21% Pr to Fr (including one trimmed and one altered). Keys: #312 Robinson (penciled check mark that lightly scraped the surface, otherwise Vg+), 313 Thomson (Fr due to tape residue on front and back), 314 Campanella (Vg), 315 Durocher (Gd-Vg), 321 Black RC (Ex-Mt), 333 Reese (Pr), 369 Groat RC (Ex), 372 McDougald RC (Pr-Fr), 373 Turner (Vg), 384 Crosetti (Gd), 392 Wilhelm RC (Vg-Ex), 394 Herman (Vg), 396 D. Williams RC (Vg), 400 Dickey (Vg-Ex), 406 Nuxhall RC (Gd+), and 407 Mathews RC (Pr-Fr). This is a very presentable near-complete (minus one) high-number run of 1952 Topps, one of card collecting’s most popular classics, in a very desirable and relatively affordable grade (compared to the much costlier higher-grade 1952 Topps cards) and representing a substantial start toward a complete set. Total: 98 cards (near-complete set of 96 plus two duplicates. Reserve $2,000.
