15% Nr/Mt (including a few Nr/Mt-Mt), 23% Ex-Mt, and 41% Ex, and 21% Vg to Vg-Ex (mostly Vg-Ex). Presented is a very attractive mid- to high-grade complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue, highlighted by Roberto Clemente and Sandy Koufax's rookie cards. We have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Nr/Mt), 2 Williams (Vg-Ex), 4 Kaline (75/25 T/B, otherwise Ex), 28 Banks (NM 84), 31 Spahn (10/90 T/B, otherwise Ex), 47 Aaron (EX/MT+ 82), 50 Robinson (NM+ 86), 92 Zimmer RC (Ex-Mt), 100 Irvin (Ex), 120 Kluszewski (Ex-Mt), 123 Koufax RC (EX+ 70), 124 Killebrew RC (NM 84), 125 Boyer RC (Ex+), 152 Agganis RC (98/2 T/B, otherwise Ex+), 155 Mathews (85/15 T/B, otherwise Ex-Mt), 164 Clemente (EX+ 70), 187 Hodges (Ex), 189 Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), 194 Mays (90/10 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 198 Berra (Vg-Ex+), and 210 Snider (100/0 T/B, otherwise Ex). A few upgrades would make this an exceptional set. The SMR value for just the six SGC-graded cards (factoring in the three half-grades and the lower whole-grade level) is $6,655. Total: 206 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
