Default 1952 Topps Set

How hard is it to put together a low grade set?
Obviously I know where the mantle trades. What about difficulty of the rest of set?

Tony Bartirome will be expensive/difficult because someone is hoarding them.

Putting the high #s (311-407) together is a gargantuan task. Let alone the rest of the set. Better have a bankroll.

There are a bunch of good threads in here on the 1952 set. There are numerous collectors of the set on the board. Several collectors have opted to just do a low number set through 310. Several are pursuing master type sets that can number close to 600 cards depending on your definition of a master set. Agree with Dan above that a full 411 base set is expensive given the cost of the Mantle and other high series cards. There are also some Topps reprints of the 1952 set from 1983

I know several collectors that are only collecting the low numbers since the hi numbers are so expensive, even in low grade.

The 1983 Topps 1952 reprint set is very nice. I have one and enjoy looking at it as much as I would a real one.

The base set is easy to buy/find it is just a matter of having the cash. The only rarity would be condition.

Low grade not hard at all. Aside from the 332 mentioned. Best is buying large lots and trading and or selling

Figure the High numbered commons will cost $60-100 each in Good to VG condition.
