1958 Topps Baseball Complete Set 3 - VG
The 1958 Topps Complete Set includes many firsts for Topps. This is the first year Topps included a Sporting News All-Star card subset, the first year that team cards included series checklists on the back, and the first year Stan Musial appeared on a Topps card (#476 Musial All-Star).
The 1958 Topps Baseball set contains 494 cards; although cards are numbered 1-495, card #145 was never issued. Each card features a brightly colored background with a large action shot of the player. The player's name, position, and team is below as well as a small team logo.
The 1958 Topps set is also very condition sensitive due to both centering and "dirty" cards issues. Finding a 1950 Topps Complete Set in a "true" grade of 6 - ExMt, compares to finding most of the other set of this era in a "7 - NrMt" grade. That said, 1958 Topps sets in lower grades are very affordable, because of the absence of a rare "high-numbered" series.
The 1958 Topps set includes the rookie card for baseball greats Orlando Cepeda, Roger Maris and Vada Pinson.
This set is loaded with Hall of Famers including: Williams, Lemon, Mays, Drysdale, Aaron, Maris, Clemente, Kaline, Aparicio, Snider, Roberts, Wynn, Bunning, Slaughter, Mantle, Kluszewski, Koufax, Schoendienst, Ashburn, Mazeroski, Spahn, F. Robinson, Killebrew, B. Robinson, Banks, Ford, Wilhelm, Cepeda, Berra, Reese, Fox, Mathews, and Musial.
Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $3,625.50.
