1952 Topps Baseball
# of cards: 407
Dimensions: 2 5/8″ by 3 3/4″

52

Collector score: ***** (6 Stars)

The most popular sports card set ever produced. It is nearly impossible to find cards in NM-MT condition, so most collectors are quite happy to find an EX or even a VG card, especially in the lower numbers.

This was Topps’ first major set, and it blew the little Bowman cards off the charts. It still does. Card numbers 1-80 were issued with red or black backs, both of which are scarcer than cards 81-250. Error cards of #48 (Joe Page) and #49 (Johnny Sain) can be found with each others backs. Cards#251-310 are scarce,  while #311-407 are very scarce.

This guide takes no note of the Red Back/Black Back variations or the White Back/Gray Back variations, as neither seems to have any significant effect on retail pricing.  The Red Backs used to be considered slightly more valuable, but with more red backs showing up recently this seems to no longer be the case.  If you choose to believe that the red backs are more valuable, the difference is certainly no more than 10%.

The most valuable card in this set is #1 Andy Pafko.  Mint condition examples of the Pafko card are almost nonexistent, and have sold for over $25,000.
