NOTE: SMR individual card value for the 109 graded cards alone in this set is over $12,000.

Super high grade, fresh to the hobby complete set of 1954 Topps Baseball cards came to us from the original owner looking like a solid brick that hadn't been touched since it was assembled from vending 50 years ago (see photo). We immediately sent about 1/2 of the cards, including all major stars, to PSA for grading with expectations of many MINT 9 grades. Needless to say we were disappointed with the results and will strongly argue that most cards display better than the given technical grade. The graded cards are: Mint PSA 9 (1) - #209.

NM-MT+ PSA 8.5 (1) - #55.

NM-MT PSA 8 (42) - #6, 9, 11, 12, 17 Rizzuto(HOF), 20 Spahn(HOF)(OC), 22, 29, 30 Mathews(HOF), 31, 42, 46, 47, 53, 54, 56, 60, 61, 66, 68, 73, 78, 89, 90 Mays(HOF), 91, 95, 105, 111, 112, 133, 148, 150, 152, 153, 158, 163, 164, 171, 172, 180, 193, 230, 238.

NM+ PSA 7.5 (1) - #85.

NM PSA 7 (41) - #24, 26, 35 Gilliam, 36 Wilhelm(HOF), 38, 39, 41, 43, 50 Berra(HOF), 62, 65, 67, 77, 80 Jensen, 83, Banks(HOF)(MC), 100, 102 Hodges, 107, 121, 122, 125, 128 Aaron(HOF), 130, 146, 151, 154, 165, 166 Podres, 169, 173, 189, 190, 197, 206, 217, 222, 233, 237, 239 Skowron(HOF), 246, 248.

EX-MT+ PSA 6.5 (1) - #13 Martin.

EX-MT PSA 6 (12) - #10 Robinson(HOF), 34, 37 Ford(HOF), 45 Ashburn(HOF), 48, 69, 82, 113, 123, 143, 210, 250 T. Williams(HOF).

EX PSA 5 (4) - #1 T. Williams(HOF), 15, 201 Kaline(HOF), 207.

VG-EX+ PSA 4.5 (1) - #18.

VG-EX PSA 4 (4) - #75, 168, 212, 215.

PSA TRIMMED - #32 Snider(HOF).

We still see more possibilities for grading as we only sent in all key Hall of Famers and those cards we thought had a chance to be NM-MT or MINT. Many review and resubmit candidates abound.
