One of the hobby’s best sets of 1956 Topps baseball cards is among the items up for bids in the upcoming sports catalog from RR Auction.
The second best Master Set on the PSA Registry, the 354-card accumulation carries a 9.44 set rating, with nearly every card graded either a 9 or 10. The set includes the 342 standard cards along with 12 additional scarce team card variations.
The auction includes dozens of other high-grade sets and singles including a PSA 9 1961 Topps Mickey Mantle, a PSA 8.5 1957 Topps Mantle, a 1916 Herpolsheimer Company Babe Ruth PSA 2 rookie card (one of only four graded by PSA), a PSA 6 1952 Topps Mantle, two 1951 Bowman Mantle rookie cards including a PSA 7, a 1951 Bowman complete set and numerous other partial and complete sets, Hall of Famer lots and other vintage cards.
Memorabilia up for grabs include a Vince Lombardi-worn topcoat from 1966, a sterling silver trophy honoring the Green Bay Packers’ first championship season in 1929, an early 1930s Babe Ruth signed photo—possibly given to a young JFK, an Ernie Davis signed check and 40 signed player contracts.
