Outstanding ten-card set of 1958 Bell Brand Potato Chips cards. This very scarce and distinctive set featuring Dodgers players was issued regionally only in the Los Angeles area to commemorate the Dodgers' first season on the West Coast. One card was packaged in a thin cellophane wrapper with each bag of Bell Brand Potato Chips. As a result of the product with which they were packaged, heavy grease stains and creases are common with this issue. Six of the cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The condition is as follows: Campanella (Vg), Cimoli (VG 3), Drysdale (pencil marks on back, otherwise Gd), Gilliam (EX-MT 6), Hodges (VG-EX 4), Koufax (GOOD 2), Podres (GOOD 2), Reese (Gd), Snider (GOOD 2 [MK]), and Zimmer (Pr). This is an attractive yet still relatively affordable set of this classic regional issue. Total: 10 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
