Presented here is an extraordinary complete master set of the famed 1956 Topps Baseball issue, with each and every card slabbed by PSA and boasting an aggregate grade above PSA 9 Mint condition. From a breathtaking PSA 8.5 No. 135 Mickey Mantle to PSA 9 Mint blazers from the likes of Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax, Ernie Banks, Harmon Killebrew, Eddie Mathews, Al Kaline, Yogi Berra, Duke Snider, Warren Spahn, Bob Feller, Pee Wee Reese, the Luis Aparicio Rookie and nearly a dozen Hall of Famers, the overall presentation of this iconic issue can hardly be overstated. This entire 1956 Topps Baseball Master Set is being sold as a complete set and also being sold as singles. At the end of the auction, the set will be sold according to the highest aggregate bidding, whether that is the sum of the individual cards or the highest bid for the complete set. Our website will automatically reflect whichever portion has received the highest bid total. The temptation to stumble over superlatives is overwhelming: There are 10 PSA 10 Mint cards, 16 cards assessed PSA 8.5 Near-Mint to Mint-Plus, 62 cards PSA 8 Near-Mint to Mint, and all the rest – a total of 266 cards – are PSA 9 Mint. With that kind of remarkable dominance of Mint specimens, all that’s left to do is provide a rundown of the keys and provide details for the seven-plus dozen outliers. As a master set, the lineup includes the dated, undated and justified or centered team card variations and the two unnumbered checklists.
