1955 Topps Complete Set (206)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,444
17% Ex-Mt, 62% Ex, and 21% Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). This is a very attractive complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue, technically mid-grade but appearing even stronger. Few cards have creases or wrinkles, and centering or honest corner wear is most commonly responsible for any downgrades. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Sandy Koufax and Roberto Clemente, the 1955 Topps also includes many additional key star cards, including Ted Williams and Willie Mays. We have selected four cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Vg-Ex), 2 Williams (Ex), 4 Kaline (Ex), 28 Banks (Ex), 31 Spahn (Ex), 47 Aaron (SGC EX+ 70), 50 Robinson (SGC EX/NM 80), 100 Irvin (Ex), 123 Koufax (SGC EX+ 70), 124 Killebrew (Ex), 152 Agganis RC (Vg), 155 Mathews (Vg-Ex+), 164 Clemente (SGC VG/EX 50), 187 Hodges (Ex), 189 Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), 194 Mays (no bottom border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 198 Berra (Vg), and 210 Snider (Vg-Ex+). Attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this, especially when the set is on the strong side of the term "mid-grade" and the many stars and key cards are so pleasing and consistent with the rest of the set, always generate tremendous collector interest. Total: 206 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $4,444
