There are certain categories on the Registry where the competition has been built up over many years between resident collectors, so itís rare to see a new entry make the kind of statement and impact that this incredible set did in 2017. After being added to our site, this set vaulted to #2 on the All-Time Finest list, carrying a GPA of 8.53. This set, which requires significantly more cards than the Basic set due to the numerous variations found in Series 1 (490 versus 407), packs a serious wallop. This yearís inductee is the only one in Registry history to have both a PSA 10 Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays in the same set. In terms of sheer monetary value, this is the most valuable 1952 Topps set registered on the site. For now, the collection continues to improve as it seeks to dethrone our longstanding leader in overall GPA. In addition to being named Best Rookie Set of the Year, this set joins elite company in our Hall of Fame."
Very cool!

Thanks for sharing, Swarmee!
