Very high-grade 1957 Topps baseball complete set with 118 cards graded by PSA, almost 30% of the entire 407 card set graded. Many of the graded cards are razor sharp beauties. With the recent PSA ultra-strict grading tendencies, many of the PSA 8's appear MINT, while a majority of the PSA 7's are NM-MT quality. A few of the star cards appear to be extremely harshly graded, including all the PSA 5 and PSA 6 star cards, which appear to be a half to full grade lower than what an accurate grade would be for those examples. While there are a large percentage of cards graded by PSA, scores of high-grade cards still remain ungraded, many still in NM to NM-MT condition. This set is highly consistent, with sharp corners, exceptional centering and a clean, fresh appearance throughout.
