High-End 1956 Topps Complete Super Master Set 540/540 #4 on PSA Set Registry   High-End 1956 Topps Complete Super Master Set 540/540 #4 on PSA Set Registry
High-End 1956 Topps complete "Super Master" set. 540 total cards (counting the two checklists) with all back and team card variations included. 100 percent complete, 100 percent PSA graded. Sixty-two percent of this set is graded PSA 8 or higher. Currently ranked the fourth highest "super master" set on the PSA Set Registry for active 1956 Topps super-master sets and also sits as the seventh all-time best. The 1956 Topps "base set", contains 340 cards plus the two checklists. However, there are two hundred additional variations to this base set that are recognized by PSA. Most of these variations involve the backs of the cards (gray versus white), and the rest involve some of the team cards, which can be found with both backs, along with three different variations on the front. The 1956 Topps "master" set contains the 340 card "base" set, plus all the 12 team card variations, but ignores the back variations, for a 354 card total. The "super master" set includes all the front variations, plus all of the back variations and checklists for a total of 540 cards. This is a "super master" set.

Cards 1-180 come in both gray back and white back variations. The gray backs are slightly more rare than the white backs in series I (card numbers 1 through 100) and command a bit of a premium, but they're not super difficult to find. Most collectors agree (and it's essentially proven by looking at the PSA pop report), that white backs are, at least, twice as common as gray backs in Series I. In Series II (cards 101 through 180), however, the white backs are significantly more scarce, and command a significant premium, and are EXTREMELY difficult to find in mid and higher grades. The consensus seems to be that, in Series II, Topps printed around one tenth as many white backs as gray.

Based on the difficulty of finding them (and the cost), I believe this to be true. For example, the total pop, according to PSA. For card # 135, Mickey Mantle, is 6,125 in the gray back version and 484 in the white back. That would suggest about a 13 to 1 ratio.

Another example: The white back Mantle in this set (PSA 7) has a total pop of 10 with only 4 graded higher. PSA 8.5, 8 -- 335. PSA 7.5, 7 -- 76. PSA 6.5, 6 -- 74. PSA 5.5, 5 -- 28.
