1954-1955 Topps Hockey Partial Set (38/60)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $5,400
Partial set of the landmark 1954-1955 Topps Hockey series (38 of the 60 cards in the set), the first hockey set issued by Topps. Missing the following twenty-two cards for completion: #5 Kelly, 6, 8 Howe, 9, 10 Worsley, 11 Bathgate, 16, 23, 24, 29, 31, 32, 36, 37, 41 Stanley, 42, 43, 48, 49 Quackenbush, 53, 54, and 60 Schmidt. (The #8 Howe and 60 Schmidt from this collection are being offered individually in this auction due to their high grade.) These cards originate from a small original-owner collection consigned to this auction, and have remained untouched in storage since the 1950s. The important 1954-1955 Topps Hockey set features players from the four American teams: Detroit, New York, Chicago, and Boston. This is an extremely attractive partial set of 1954-1955 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all hockey-card sets. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Gamble (Nr/Mt), 3 Howell (Nr/Mt), 18 Mohns RC (Ex-Mt+), 20 Gadsby (Nr/Mt), 25 Flaman (Nr/Mt+), 26 Rollins (Ex-Mt+), 27 Pronovost (Ex+), 39 Delvecchio (NM/MT 88), 51 Lindsay (EX/NM 80), and 58 Sawchuk (EX 60). The balance of the cards grade Nr/Mt or better with five Ex-Mt and two Vg. The flush-to-the-bottom-border design of the 1954-1955 Topps Hockey set makes this issue particularly susceptible to edge and corner wear, and makes the assembly of high-quality sets all the more difficult. This is an exceptionally attractive high-grade partial set, with tremendous eye-appeal across the board. This collection represents a very substantial start towards the assembly of an outstanding complete set of 1954-1955 Topps Hockey. The equivalent SMR value of just the three graded cards is $750. Total: 38 cards. SOLD FOR $5,400
