Here’s a hobby treasure that rarely finds it way to the auction block in this form: the entire Low Series run from the iconic 1952 Topps Baseball issue, missing only the No. 261 Willie Mays, all in a highly attractive and collectible condition that is pretty evenly divided between VG-Ex to Ex, Very Good and Good, with just a handful of cards above and below the range. This is a Holy Grail for generations of collectors of postwar baseball, the natural starting point for advanced collections. The cards boast really sharp colors and gloss and present this classic card set in a highly presentable fashion. Overall, it comes out to 7 percent Excellent, 13 percent VG-Ex, 23 percent Very Good, 35 percent Good, 18 percent Fair and 3 percent Poor, with five cards above the range at Ex-Mt and a solitary, sparkling No. 168 Charlie Silvera Rookie card reaching Near-Mint status. Not bad for Yogi Berra’s caddy! Here’s the breakdown of keys: No. 1 Pafko – Fair, 2 Runnels Rookie – Good, 11 Rizzuto – Good, 26 Irvin – Good, 29 Kluszewski – Fair, 33 Spahn – VG-Ex, 36 Hodges – Very Good, 37 Snider – Good, 49 Sain – Good, 59 Roberts – VG-Ex, 64 Sievers – Ex-Mt-Plus, 65 Slaughter – Good, 88 Feller – presents Good but paper loss on the back, 91 Schoendienst – Ex-Plus, 129 Mize – Fair, 168 Silvera Rookie – Near-Mint, 175 Martin Rookie – Good, 191 Berra – Good, 195 Minoso Rookie – Ex-Plus, 200 Houk Rookie – VG, 216 Ashburn – Good, 227 Garagiola – presents Ex-Plus but back damage, 233 Friend Rookie – Good, 237 Coleman – presents Good but back damage, 243 Doby – VG-Ex (diamond cut), 246 Kell – VG-Ex, 268 Lemon – Good and 277 Wynn – VG. Simply put, this is a remarkably rare opportunity to pick up a treasured hobby icon all at once. Try to recall the last time the entire 1-310 Low Series was on the block in a single lot.
