The 1952 Topps Baseball issue is undoubtedly one of the three most important sets in the hobby, along with 1933 Goudey gum and the T206 tobacco series. Their larger size and bold, colorful imagery gained hold of early 1950's collectors and placed Topps at the forefront of the bubble gum sport card business. This offered complete set of 407 is in the low-to-mid grade category with 103 total PSA graded cards including the coveted #311 Mickey Mantle, #261 Willie Mays and #407 Ed Mathews rookie. All 97 of the coveted "High Numbers" (#'s 311-407) are graded as well as these six: #1 Andy Pafko VG 3, #33 Warren Spahn VG 3, #37 Duke Snider "Authentic/Altered", #175 Billy Martin (RC) VG 3, #191 Yogi Berra GD 2, and #261 Mays VG 3.
