1954 Topps #94 Ernie Banks Rookie

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Extremely attractive example of Ernie Banks' rookie card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Banks' rookie card is one of the keys to the 1954 Topps set and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This is a very striking EX+ example. The card exhibits vibrant colors, four sharp corners showing light touches of wear, and perfect registration. The card is centered towards the top (a common problem with this card), which is all that keeps it from grading higher. Usually this card is offered by Robert Edward Auctions only in the context of a complete set, but we are presenting this modern classic as its own lot in part to emphasize that, with patience, some of card collecting's most noteworthy and iconic cards are possible to obtain in extremely desirable grade without spending a fortune. This is a strong example of Ernie Banks' rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $720
