1955 Topps All-American Football PSA-Graded Collection (34) Including Seven Hall of Famers
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,560
Presented is a high-grade collection of thirty-four different (out of 100) cards from the 1955 Topps All-American series, the last football-card set issued by Topps honoring college football stars. The complete set is full of highlights, containing many Hall of Famers, numerous rookies, and many challenging short prints, some of which are included in the offered collection. Each card has been professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA, except for six as noted in the grading composite below. What makes this particular collection very interesting is the fact that exactly half (seventeen cards) have been graded with qualifiers, including many of the key cards within the set. PSA Grading Composite: MINT 9 (16 cards): #11 SP (OC), 13 (OC), 16 Rockne (OC), 20 Baugh (OC, HOF), 24 Strong (OC, HOF), 27 Grange (OC, HOF), 28 Hein RC (OC, HOF), 30 (OC), 42 SP (OC), 45 (OC), 46 (OC), 52 (OC), 59 (OC), 62 (MC), 77 SP (OC), and 84 RC SP (OC, HOF). NM-MT+ 8.5 (1 card): #10 Dudley (HOF). NM-MT 8 (14 cards): #9 SP, 34 O'Brien RC, 36 Edwards SP, 49, 54 SP, 57 SP, 63, 64 Friedman (HOF, BVG NM-MT 8), 67 (BVG NM-MT 8), 68 The Four Horsemen (OC), 80 (GAI NM-MT 8), 81 (GAI NM-MT 8), 94 SP, and 96 SP. EX 5 (1 card): #71. Two additional cards are graded by off-brand companies: #5 (FGS Mint 9, card appears NM) and 31 (BCCG 9, card appears NM). This is a very attractive high-grade collection of cards from this very popular set, with many notable highlights. The SMR value for just fifteen cards (excluding the seventeen qualified cards and the two cards graded by off-brand companies) is $1,509. Naturally, the value would be many times this amount if the key cards did not have qualifiers, which makes this lot a particularly interesting and outstanding collecting value. Total: 34 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,560
