1955 Topps Complete Set (206)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,115

75% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex), 25% Vg (includes a few lesser grades). This is a very attractive medium-grade complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Sandy Koufax and Roberto Clemente, 1955 Topps also includes many additional key star cards, including Hank Aaron and Jackie Robinson. Do not be fooled by the technically modest grades. This is a sharp-looking set! We have selected seven cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Ex), 2 Williams (GOOD 30), 4 Kaline (autographed in blue ink grades "9," card is slightly trimmed), 28 Banks (Vg-Ex), 31 Spahn (Ex), 47 Aaron (EX 60), 50 Robinson (VG/EX 50), 100 Irvin (Ex), 120 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex), 123 Koufax RC (EX 60), 124 Killebrew RC (Vg), 125 Boyer (Ex), 152 Agganis RC (Vg), 155 Mathews (Vg), 164 Clemente (VG 40), 187 Hodges (Ex), 189 Rizzuto (Vg), 194 Mays (VG/EX 50), 198 Berra (VG/EX 50), and 210 Snider (Fr). Affordable, attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. Total: 206 cards. LOA from James Spence/JSA (for the one autographed card). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,115
