1954 Red Man Tobacco PSA-Graded Collection (12) Including Seven Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

Superb high-grade collection of twelve different 1954 Red Man tobacco cards (all with tabs), each graded and encapsulated by PSA. This collection is highlighted by seven Hall of Famers, including Yogi Berra, Richie Ashburn, Duke Snider, and Warren Spahn. PSA Grading Composite: One NM-MT+ 8.5: #21N. Eight NM-MT 8: #2N, 5N Irvin (HOF), 8N, 10N Schoendienst (HOF), 16N Snider (HOF), 18N Roberts (HOF), 20A Berra (HOF), and 24N. One NM+ 7.5: #11N Spahn (HOF). One NM 7: #1N Ashburn (HOF). One EX-MT 6: #14N. Each card is remarkably crisp and clean, with brilliant colors, flawless surface, and sharp corners. Red Man Tobacco cards are far rarer than most 1950s baseball cards. Because of their tabs (which were designed to be cut) and method of issue, they often have condition problems. This is a gorgeous collection of cards in very high grade with several notable highlights. Many consider Red Man Tobacco to represent one of the best values of all cards from the era. The total SMR value for the collection is $2,445. Total: 12 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $1,800
