1911 C55 Imperial Tobacco #38 Georges Vezina Rookie - PSA EX 5
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,288
Graded EX 5 by PSA. A very attractive high-grade example of the rookie card of Hall of Famer Georges Vezina (for whom the Vezina Trophy is named) from the extremely rare C55 Imperial Tobacco hockey series. The offered example is exceptionally bright and clean, with deep, rich colors, and flawless registration. The corners are square with even, very light wear. The image is centered slightly to the bottom. The back is clean with very bold print. Unlike baseball's most significant vintage sets, such as T206 and 1933 Goudey, which are widely known throughout the collecting world, hockey's great rarities and earliest issues are relatively unknown, except by veteran hockey-card collectors. This is a beautiful example of Georges Vezina's rookie card, universally recognized as one of the greatest and most important of all hockey cards, and which would be a worthy addition to any high-grade C55 set or world-class classic Hall of Fame hockey-card collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000.
SOLD FOR $5,288
