1955 Topps Near-Complete Set (189/206)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,400

20% Nr/Mt, 42% Ex-Mt, 33% Ex, and 5% slightly lesser (a few of the slightly lesser cards with very slight trim). This is a very high quality near-complete set of 1955 Topps, one of the most popular and classic of all baseball-card sets, highlighted by a particularly strong example of the key Roberto Clemente rookie card (graded EX-MT 6 by PSA). Missing only seventeen cards for completion: #4, 31, 34, 83, 89, 96, 99, 151, 155, 173, 174, 179, 194, 198, 199, 206, and 210. Almost every card in this near-complete set displays brilliant colors, crisp images, and strong corners, with centering the only flaw on almost all of the cards graded Ex. We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Ex-Mt+), 2 Williams (EX 5), 4 Kaline (EX-MT 6), 28 Banks (Ex+), 47 Aaron (EX 5), 50 Robinson (EX-MT 6), 100 Irvin (Ex-Mt+), 120 Kluszewski (Ex-Mt), 123 Koufax RC ("Authentic," due to evidence of trimming, otherwise Ex-Mt), 124 Killebrew RC (VG-EX 4), 125 Boyer (Vg-Ex+), 152 Agganis RC (Ex+), 164 Clemente (EX-MT 6), 187 Hodges ("Authentic," due to evidence of trimming, otherwise Ex+), and 189 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex+). This is an exceptionally attractive, crisp, overall very high-grade near-complete set of 1955 Topps, one of the most classic 1950s Topps series. The SMR value for just four of the graded cards (not including the one card graded VG-EX 4, the two "Authentic" cards, and also not including the additional 182 ungraded cards!) is $2,095. Total: 189 cards.
