Presented is a truly spectacular example of the important 1957 Topps Football set, with each and every card comfortably ensconced in a PSA holder to a tune of a 6.21 Grade Point Average and a No. 28 slot on the vaunted PSA Set Registry. In a set defined by a world-beating Rookie lineup (Unitas, Starr, Hornung, Berry and Lane) and a unique ranking as Topps’ first-ever football issue produced in the now-standard 2 ½-by-3 ½-inch format, the 1957 issue has long been a popular and coveted element of major football collections. This handsome accumulation comes out to a whopping 46 percent Near-Mint or better (23 Hall of Famers) and 40 percent Ex-Mt or better (10 Hall of Famers), with the remaining 13 percent Excellent and a mere pair of cards below that, both to VG-Ex.
