16% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 52% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 32% Vg to Vg-Ex. Presented is a very attractive complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue, technically ranging from midgrade to high grade but appearing even stronger, and with many condition highlights, including beautiful examples of the key rookie cards of Sandy Koufax, Harmon Killebrew, and Roberto Clemente. The 1955 Topps includes many additional key star cards, including Ted Williams and Willie Mays. Twenty-eight cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Vg-Ex), 2 Williams (VG-EX 4), 4 Kaline (NM+ 7.5), 22 Skowron RC (NM-MT 8), 28 Banks (NM 7), 31 Spahn (EX-MT 6), 47 Aaron (VG-EX 4), 50 Robinson (NM 7), 100 Irvin (EX-MT 6), 120 Kluszewski (NM-MT 8), 123 Koufax (EX 5), 124 Killebrew (EX-MT 6), 125 Boyer (EX-MT+ 6.5), 152 Agganis RC (Vg-Ex), 155 Mathews (EX-MT 6), 164 Clemente (EX 5), 187 Hodges (EX-MT 6), 189 Rizzuto (EX-MT 6), 194 Mays (EX 5), 198 Berra (EX+ 5.5), and 210 Snider (VG-EX 4).

Attractive mid- to high-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this, especially when the set is on the strong side and the many stars and key cards are so pleasing and consistent with the rest of the set, always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. The total SMR value for just twenty-five of the graded cards (excluding the three cards graded less than EX and also not including the 178 ungraded cards!) is $5,110. Total: 206 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $6,600
