1938-1976 Topps, Bowman, Goudey, Fleer, and Berk-Ross Hall of Famer Card Collection (84 cards)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $12,925

Exciting and carefully assembled collection eighty-four cards issued by Topps, Bowman, Goudey, Fleer, and Berk-Ross, spanning the years 1938 to 1976, with representation of twenty-five different quality issues, comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers, stars, and key cards. Among the many highlights are a 1938 Goudey #277 Greenberg (PSA NM 7) and 1952 Berk-Ross DiMaggio (PSA NM+ 7.5). While these two are the most valuable cards in the collection, every card in the lot is a highlight.
