In 1957 Walt Disney parlayed the public’s fascination with the swashbuckling Zorro character, first portrayed by Douglas Fairbanks, into an immensely popular live-action series. Topps joined in on the merchandising boom, producing the 88-card set that you see here. This set was one of the first of the smaller-sized non-sports sets that Topps produced, and it was plagued with production problems. Since Zorro was shot in black and white, the set had to be put together from hand-colored, black and white publicity shots, and some on-set color photography. In addition to color registration issues these cards often suffer from centering and cutting problems, as well. Needless to say, building a set of this caliber is an astounding achievement.

This 1958 Topps Zorro complete set is rated the Number One Finest Set of All-Time on the PSA Set Registry with almost 60% of all the cards being among the finest known with nothing rated higher. Includes: MINT PSA 9 NM (24) - #7(1/1), 11(1/2), 19(1/2), 26(1/5), 28(1/1), 37(1/1), 40(1/2), 43(1/2), 48(1/3), 50(1/1), 52(1/2), 54(1/1), 56(1/1), 57(1/2), 65(1/1), 68(1/1), 72(1/2), 73(1/1), 75(1/1), 80(1/1), 81(/13), 85(1/3), 87(1/2). NM-MT PSA 8 (63) - #2-6, 8-10, 12-18, 20-25, 27, 29-36, 38, 39, 41, 42, 44-47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 58-64, 66, 69-71, 74, 76-79, 82-84, 86, 88. PSA 7 (1) - #1.
