Who was the artist whom painted the 53 topps. I know those pics arent photos per say are they? Great artwork sets those cards way up high in my book making it one of the most beautiful Topps issues.

Forget his name Rob I do know they have auctioned off some of those before and they've gone for big bucks. Think it was more than one artist two.

Oh I see. Daryl i can't ever get over how great it is to really look at those cards. Ive stewed over the thought of putting a raw low grade and i mean low grade set together someday in a nice binder. The big names in that set cost a pretty penny.

Yeah I've thought about the 53's before to man, I have a nice Mantle in a five but that wasn't cheap lol! High grade low grade whatever it's topps coolest set IMO not my fav probably cause I can't afford it but it just screams old baseball. There's a Satchal Paige card and a Bobo Newsome!!! No BoBo's or Satchals running around today

Believe me, I understand. This is the most money I will ever be able to spend on a set. i had some special circumstances that made this possible. And even then, I am looking at a mid-grade set. I love it for all the reasons you guys have named. They have always looked like what I imagine a vintage ball card is supposed to look like. They really capture the imagination.

Here are some of the raw 53s I will get graded eventually. Some of these are better than others. They are all clean...no creases, wrinkles, etc. Mainly surface/edge/corner wear...
I will put up some others in a few days. Pretty decent cards....
