Up for your consideration is a complete 1958 Topps 494/494 baseball set that belongs to an older gentleman who started this set as a child and completed it through purchases at card shows, flea markets, card shops during the 1980s-90s --with exception of 2 cards which were recently purchased online to complete the set. (Note: I will not break this set up...)

This set is a pretty consistent VGEX (I do not overstate grades) with minimal creasing but some honest wear or possibly other issues common with cards from this time (wax stains, off-centering, etc.) That said, most cards are decent presentable cards. I went through this set very carefully and feel the below grade breakdown is quite accurate.

PFG 5%
VG 20%
VGEX 50%
EX 25%
EXMT or Better 5%

Star Card Grades:
1 T Williams GD crease, 5 Mays EX no cr, 8 Kasko YL EX, 25 Drysdalde GD, 30 Aaron VGEX no cr, 47 Maris VGEX+ no crease, 52 Clemente VGEX miscut no crease, 70 Kaline VGEX, 88 Snider VGEX, 150 Mantle VGEX+ no crease, 187 Koufax VG, 246 Yankees TC VGEX no mark, 270 Spahn VG+, 285 F Robinson VG crease, 288 Killebrew GD/VG sig wear, 307 Brooks Robinson GD creasing, 310 Banks VG, 320 Ford EX/EX+, 321 Sluggers w/Williams VG, 343 Cepeda RC Fair, 370 Berra Ex/Ex+ front w/minor stain back, 375 Reese EX+oc wax line back, 418 VGEX+ Aaron/Mantle no crease, 436 Rival Busters VG crease, 440 Mathews VGEX, 476 Musial AS Fair, 482 Banks AS VGEX print line, 485 Williams AS Ex- honest wear no cr., 486 Mays AS VG, 487 Mantle AS GD/VG, 488 AS Aaron EX.

Most team cards are not marked except 3 including Brooklyn Dodger TC.

Scans: (Note, my scanner picks up some scratches, etc. not on actual cards, see written description, example, Mantle Maris show a few imperfections not on actual cards).


Cards will be well packed and shipped in original binder (star cards will be removed and stored in toploaders) via insured/tracked Priority Mail. Returns will not be excepted because what you see is what you get.
