1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips Complete Set (29)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Complete set of these popular cards, which were issued one card per bag of Dan-Dee potato chips. Dan-Dees are usually found with serious condition problems relating to this method of issue, including creases and potato-chip grease stains. The wax coating on the surface of these cards was intended to protect them from grease staining. Since these cards were issued primarily in the Pittsburgh and Cleveland areas, it is not surprising the players featured are mostly Pirates and Indians, although the three New York area teams are also represented. Condition is twelve Ex, seven Vg-Ex, and ten Fr to Vg. We have submitted six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Seven cards grade Ex or better, eight cards range from Vg to Vg-Ex, fourteen cards are in lower grades (overall Good). Keys: Doby (Vg-Ex+), Feller (VG 40), Hodges (EX 60), Irvin (EX 60), Lemon (Vg), Lopez (Fr), Mantle (FAIR 20), Rizzuto (VG/EX+ 55), Schoendienst (Vg-Ex+), Snider (EX 60), and Wynn (Vg-Ex). This is a very attractive mid-grade set of one of the classics of 1950s regional food issues. Total: 29 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,320
