1958 Hires Root Beer Partial Set (56/66)

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,725.00

Partial set of 1958 Hires Root Beer cards includes 56 of the 66 cards in the set. The ten cards missing for completion are #17 Larry Doby, #23 Reese, #25 Mays, #34 Labine, #36 Mazeroski, #44 Aaron, #55 Drysdale, #56 Jensen, #61 Snider, and #74 Walker. This was obviously a factory set, originating from legendary early card dealer Bruce Yeko (the source for all of the hobby's high grade Hires sets with tabs) which has been broken up over the years. The partial set grades 90% Ex to Nr/Mt, with the balance in slightly lesser grades. Highlights: #10 Richie Ashburn (Ex), #13 Don Newcombe (Ex-Mt), #41 Don Zimmer (Ex, bordering Ex-Mt), #42 Johnny Podres (Ex-Mt), #75 Bobby Thomson (Ex), and #67 Ted Kluszewski (Ex-Mt). A solid high-grade partial set with tabs of this popular, scarce, and very unusual regional issue. Total 56 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,725.00
