Default Elite-graded 1952 Topps gems hit Memory Lane auction block

Elite-graded 1952 Topps gems hit Memory Lane auction block
July 26, 2010, 12:07 pm



“Let’s play two” is an understatement of how exciting this one is.

Ernie Banks‘ memorable phrase comes to mind when two of the biggest PSA-graded gems from 1952 Topps come to mind — even though Mr. Cub wasn’t around to be found in those packs.

Up for grabs as part of Memory Lane‘s Summer Treasures auction, found now at MemoryLaneInc.com, are a PSA 8.5 Mickey Mantle 1952 Topps card and a PSA 8 wax pack from the famed set. Only 10 Mantles have graded higher from PSA.


The card had been a PSA 8 but was re-examined after PSA added half-grades to its 10-point grading scale. What might this card fetch? Well, in 2007, Memory Lane sold two PSA 9s for $375,000 apiece.

The pack is something special, too, as it is the highest-graded specimen available.

“This is the highest known graded 1952 Topps pack,” said Memory Lane’s J.P. Cohen. “We’ve put the pre-sale estimate at between $20,000-$30,000.”

In December 2009, Memory Lane sold an unopened 1952 Topps 5-cent wax pack for $15,406.
