1952 TOPPS BASEBALL CARDS COLLECTING

 Since its introduction more than 50 years ago, the 1952 Topps baseball card set has become an icon of popular culture. The set became the prototype for billions of cards that would be produced in the latter half of the 20th Century.

part of the famous 1952 Topps Baseball Card Set

 The assembly of a truly high-grade complete 1952 Topps set is regarded as a crowning achievement amongst collectors. A Complete 1952 Topps Baseball Card Set, graded entirely PSA 8 NM-MT was sold at Sotheby's New York for an estimated $300/400,000 USD in December 2004. 

Collecting 1952 Topps Baseball Cards 

The June 2005 sale of baseball cards at Sotheby's New York offered one of only two known graded PSA NM-MT "8" Babe Ruth rookie cards from 1915 (est. $100/150,000). Also featured was a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle graded PSA "8" NM-MT (est. $40/50,000) and complete baseball set runs including early tobacco cards (T-205, T-206, T-207, etc.), Bowmans (1948-1955) and Topps (1952-1969).

Highlighting the extraordinary assortment of approximately 30,000 baseball cards from the Barry Halper Baseball memorabilia collection were several rarities including an uncut strip of printerís proof cards with Honus Wagner (1910) and Babe Ruthís Rookie card (1914). A testament to the historical significance of the Collection resides in items such as a team card of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings (the first professional team in baseball), or the first baseball card of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson in 1910. Barry Halperís obsession with autographs is illustrated with a set of signed baseball cards of all fifteen 500 lifetime home run hitters.
