Offered is one of the most daunting undertakings in collecting baseball autographs, that of putting together a completely autographed set of 1952 Topps baseball cards. A difficult task for sure as many of these players from the 1952 set had passed away prior to the craze of collecting autographed baseball card sets in their entirety. As the ultimate post war baseball card set, the 1952 Topps issue in autographed form would be more difficult than climbing Mount Everest, but this partially signed set is a good jump start towards achieving that ultimate goal.

This 1952 Topps collection includes 308 different autographed cards of the 407 cards in the set, representing a robust 76%. This offering includes 22 of the 97 rare high numbers.

The missing numbers include: #23, 28, 36, 39, 43, 48, 61, 76, 78, 114, 147, 152, 154, 164, 174, 175 Martin, 181, 188, 198, 202, 207, 209, 210, 217, 231, 252, 255, 257, 261 Mays (elsewhere in this auction - click to view), 285, 300, 307, 311 Mantle (elsewhere in this auction - click to view), 312 Robinson, 314-319, 321, 325, 327, 331, 334-336, 338-342, 344-347, 349, 350, 352-368, 370, 371, 373-384, 386-395, 397-406 and 407 Mathews. 

A few of the many key signed cards of now deceased players include: Thompson, Hutchinson, Wehmeier,Ramsdell,B. Young,Scarborough, Northey, B. Edwards, Brazle, Gordon, Surkont, Porterfield,Goodman, Easter, Boone, Pollet,Stanky, Mitchell, Konstanty, Leonard,Lowry, Lollar, Post, Bell, Simpson, Wertz, Garcia, Bilko,Posedell,DrewsandSukeforth.

Most are signed in black or blue ballpoint with a handful in felt tip or other ink color. The cards themselves run the gamut, ranging from GD to VG to EX condition, with some lesser and a few better. This is an extremely attractive partial set of 1952 Topps cards, with several dozen Hall of Famers and high numbers. All cards authenticated by James Spence Authentication, with about 75 cards PSA/DNA encapsulated.
