The 1958 Topps Baseball Set: One Tough Customer
The 1958 Topps set has emerged as one of the more desirable sets from the 1950s. With an assortment of stars, rarities and combo cards, this tough set continues to draw more attention from the collecting public. Once considered a lackluster set with little eye-appeal, this set is now on many vintage wantlists. Why? Read more to learn more about one of the hottest sets from the pre-1970 era.

JWMerrill's 67s - 2nd Finest 1967 Topps Baseball Set
In the last PSA Insider we presented to you the Skylane flyer 1967 Topps Baseball Set. It is true that this set is the number one finest; however, our statement that Skylaneflyer was the first to reach 100% complete was incorrect. Turns out that Jim Merrill's set reached completion first, and so we feel it only right that we highlight this fine set as well! Jim's set has a weighted GPA of 8.07 and rates 8.02 overall. To make this set even more spectacular than it already is, Jim has added images to nearly every card in his set. Click here to view the entire set!

The PSA Set Registry now has 521 sets registered. New composites added in the last two weeks include the 1910 E93 Standard Caramel Baseball, 1911 T-205 Gold Border Baseball, 1952-1955 Red Man Tobacco Baseball, 1976 Topps Baseball, 1992 & 1993 Bowman Baseball, 1957 Topps Football,1998-99 SP Authentic Basketball, 1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey, 1957-58 Parkhurst Hockey, and 1971-72 Topps Hockey.
