1955 Topps Near-Complete Set (195 of 206)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,880

This is a very high quality near-complete set of 1955 Topps (195 of the 206 cards in the set), one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets, highlighted by many Hall of Famers including the rookie card of Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. 20% Nr/Mt, 60% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 20% Vg to Vg-Ex. (Missing the following eleven cards for completion: #2 Williams, 99, 123 Koufax, 124 Killebrew, 153, 166, 184, 194 Mays, 202, 208, and 210 Snider.) We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Vg), 4 Kaline (PSA EX 5), 28 Banks (Ex), 31 Spahn (90/10 T/B, otherwise Ex), 47 Aaron (PSA EX 5), 50 Robinson (Vg), 92 Zimmer RC (80/20 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 100 Irvin (25/75 L/R, otherwise Ex+), 120 Kluszewski (Ex), 125 Boyer (Ex-Mt), 152 Agganis RC (Vg), 155 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 164 Clemente RC (very nice looking card but rejected by PSA for evidence of trimming), 187 Hodges (20/80 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 189 Rizzuto (Vg), and 198 Berra (PSA VG-EX 4). This group represents the foundation for the assembly of an exceptionally attractive complete set of this classic 1950s Topps issue. Total: 195 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,880
