1955 Topps Complete Set (206)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $4,740.00
Extremely attractive complete set of the classic 1955 Topps baseball issue. This beautiful set was very carefully assembled and saved by the original owner, who collected these out of packs in the year of issue! The 1955 Topps set is highlighted by all the stars and Hall of Famers of the era, including everyone from Aaron to Williams, and features the rookie cards of Sandy Koufax, Roberto Clemente, and Harmon Killebrew, all in brilliant, stunning color, and in an exciting then-brand-new horizontal design. Most cards in this offered set are sharp and retain their bright color. Condition is 33% Ex-Mt or better, 51% Ex to Ex+, and 16% Vg-Ex with some lesser. A majority of the cards graded Vg-Ex to Ex are downgraded for centering issues but still present with sharp corners and bold color. Six cards have been graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Ex), 2 Williams (VG-EX 4), 4 Kaline (Vg-Ex, 95/5 T/B), 28 Banks (Ex-Mt), 31 Spahn (Ex+), 47 Aaron (Vg-Ex, 95/5 T/B), 50 Robinson (NM-MT 8 OC), 100 Irvin (Ex-Mt), 120 Kluszewski (Ex-Mt), 123 Koufax RC (EX 5), 124 Killebrew RC (NM 7), 125 Boyer (Ex+), 152 Agganis (Ex), 155 Mathews (Nr/Mt), 164 Clemente (VG-EX+ 4.5), 187 Hodges (Ex+), 189 Rizzuto (Nr/Mt), 194 Mays (Vg-Ex), 198 Berra (Ex), and 210 Snider (VG-EX 4). Extremely attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this, especially when the set is on the very strong side of the term "mid-grade" and the many stars and key cards are so pleasing and consistent with the rest of the set, always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. Total: 206 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
