Mona Lisa’s Smile – The Number One Current Finest 1957-58 Topps Basketball Set
This 80-card set was Topps’ first basketball issue. Popular for the rookie cards making up most of the set; Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Tom Heinsohn, just to name a few, this set has also been known amongst hobbyists & collectors to be plagued with poor centering and card defects throughout, making the goal of a high grade set difficult to attain. This collector was not deterred. With a current set rating of 8.39, (the Finest Possible is 8.64) and registered in 2003, this set has improved year after year and has earned a Set Registry Award since it was first registered. This set has also been inducted into the PSA Set Registry Hall of Fame. Click here to view this set.
