29% Vg-Ex (including five better), 50% Vg, and 21% lower. This is a very attractive midgrade near-complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue, missing only one card (#164 Clemente RC) for completion. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Sandy Koufax and Harmon Killebrew, this 1955 Topps set features many additional key star cards, including Ted Williams and Willie Mays. We have submitted four cards to be professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Vg+), 2 Williams (VG 3), 4 Kaline (trimmed, otherwise Gd), 24 Newhouser (Vg+), 28 Banks (no bottom border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 31 Spahn (Vg+), 47 Aaron (Vg), 50 Robinson (VG 3), 100 Irvin (Vg-Ex+), 120 Kluszewski (Vg+), 123 Koufax RC (FAIR 1.5), 124 Killebrew RC (VG 3), 125 Boyer RC (Vg-Ex), 152 Agganis RC (Vg-Ex), 155 Mathews (Vg+), 187 Hodges (Ex), 189 Rizzuto (Vg+), 194 Mays (Vg), 198 Berra (Vg), and 210 Snider (Vg-Ex+). Affordable midgrade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. Total: 205 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
