1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips Complete Set (29)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,998

Complete mid-grade set of these popular cards, which were issued one card per bag of Dan-Dee potato chips. Includes a particularly outstanding high-grade example of Mort Cooper (graded NM 84 by SGC), one of the rare cards in the set. Dan-Dees are usually found with serious condition problems relating to this method of issue, including creases and potato-chip grease stains. The wax coating on the surface of these cards was intended to protect them from grease staining. Since these cards were issued primarily in the Pittsburgh and Cleveland areas, it is not surprising the players featured are mostly Pirates and Indians, although the three New York area teams are also represented. Three cards have been graded by SGC (all submitted by REA). Condition composite: Seven cards grade Ex or better, eight cards range from Vg to Vg-Ex, fourteen cards are in lower grades (overall Good). Keys: Cooper (NM 84), Doby (VG/EX 50), Feller (Gd), Hodges (Gd), Irvin (Gd), Lemon (Vg), Lopez (Vg), Mantle (Gd), Rizzuto (Vg), Schoendienst (Ex), Smith (Gd), Snider (EX/NM 80), and Wynn (Gd). This is a very attractive mid-grade set of one of the classics of 1950s regional food issues. Total: 29 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,998
