How do these things survive? A ’58 Topps Ted Williams All Star card was graded PSA 10. Someone thought enough of it to plunk down a nice chunk of change to get it.
It’s the only one that exists. A ’58 Topps PSA 10 Ted Williams All Star drew 19 bids and a final price of $8512 Tuesday night.
The 1958 Topps set doesn’t generate the love collectors have for the ’57 issue, but you’ll find numerous variations and, of course, stars like Williams, Mantle, Aaron, Koufax and Clemente.
We hope such high grade examples aren’t the result of card doctoring. You can find plenty of ’58 Topps graded and non-graded for a lot less if you’re not quite as picky. See below:
