The 1957 Topps Baseball set consists of 407 cards, each measuring 2-1/2” by 3-1/2″. In many ways the series revolutionized the hobby, as it marked the first year the company would use the now-standard measurement for cardboard collectibles. The 1957 Topps also switched to full color images (either bust portraits or in-action poses) in lieu of handpainted black-and-white photos on the front, with his name and team printed across the bottom, and statistical data on the reverse.
The set is anchored by Ted Williams (#1), Roberto Clemente (#76), Mickey Mantle (#95) and Yogi Berra/Mickey Mantle (#407). Key rookies include Jim Bunning, Rocky Colavito, Don Drysdale, Whitey Herzog, Tony Kubek, Bill Mazeroski, Bobby Richardson, Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson. Unlike similar Topps entries, the scarcities lie not in the high numbers but in the second of the set’s three series – #s 265-352 – and four unnumbered checklist cards printed with one of two different product advertisements on the back.
Presented is a 1957 Topps baseball card lot (291/407 from the set with an additional 4 duplicates). Highlights are three of the main cards that were graded by SGC including Frank Robinson #35 (VG+ 3.5), Mickey Mantle #95 (PR 1) and Brooks Robinson #328 (VG 3).
Considering the low grades of the three stars, it’s understandable the rest of the cards in the lot would fare the same (low-to-mid grade condition). Highlight stars with many HOFers of the ungraded cards of the lot include: Ted Williams, Luis Aparicio, Dick Groat (Signed), Robin Roberts, Don Drysdale, Hank Aaron, Bill Mazeroski, Pee Wee Reese, Nellie Fox, Early Wynn, Ernie Banks, Roberto Clemente and Warren Spahn.
Also: Red Schoendienst, Duke Snider, Hoyt Wilhelm, Rocky Colavito, George Kell, Sandy Koufax and many others.
