    1956 TOPPS BASEBALL COLLECTION. Here presented is a crisp collection of 296 different 1956 Topps baseball. There are two features which immediately characterize this group. A large percentage of them are substantially off-center or miscut. About one-third of these are bordered at 80/20 or harsher, and another 12% are missing a border (a few of those with run-on). Conversely, the vast majority (especially including those off-centered/miscut) are sizzling out-of-the-wrapper fresh. This partial set includes both checklists, and therefore needs 46 cards to complete. Of those the most meaningful is Snider. Beyond that, Reese, Bauer and four team cards (Braves, Cardinals, Tigers and Athletics) are also needed -- the balance are all commons. For the condition of the missing report on the stars, please note that we’ve qualified centeredness by (*) to indicate 80/20 or worse (but with four borders), and (**) for miscut. In both cases, we’ve indicated condition based on all other considerations other than centering. NM/better: Giles (PSA NM-MT 8 OC), Alston, Spahn*, Cubs, Kaline**, Kluszewski, Robinson**, Aaron**, Clemente (PSA NM 7 OC), Turley (PSA NM 7), Phillies*, Koufax (PSA NM 7), Indians*, Reds*, Mathews, Slaughter, Red Sox, Rizzuto (PSA NM 7), Ashburn, Pirates, Mantle (PSA NM-MT 8 OC), Score, Hodges (PSA NM 7), Schoendienst, Martin*, Wynn*, White Sox, Irvin, Howard*, Giants, Kell, Lemon, Doby, Aparicio*, Larsen and Wilhelm. EX/MT: Banks**, Orioles**, Campanella, Fox, Dodgers (PSA EXMT 6), Roberts, Feller, Ford, Howard and #340. EX: Harridge**, Berra (PSA EX 5), Mays (PSA EX 5), Killebrew, Senators and checklist 1/3 (PSA EX 5). VG: checklist 2/4. and Williams PSA PR-FR 1. And for an added delight, this collection also includes a #5 Williams which was hand-cut from a sheet. Because it includes the sheet’s border, it measures about 2 3/4" x 4 3/8". With a couple light creases, it’s about VG/EX. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
