1933-1953 Goudey & Topps Collection Altered (4 of 6)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $3,480.00
This improbable collection of six classic baseball cards includes four altered cards plus two cards which are not altered, have no problems, and have been graded by SGC. 1) 1952 Topps #60 Bill Dickey: graded 60 EX by SGC. This is a very fresh, sharp-looking card with perfect centering, just the slightest hint of corner wear. 2) 1951 Bowman #50 Johnny Mize: graded 88 NM/MT by SGC. 3) Altered: 1933 Goudey #53 Babe Ruth, 1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle, 1941 Play Ball #70 Bill Dickey, 1935 Diamond Star #103 Bill Dickey (rare high number). The preceding four cards each have an appearance of Ex-Mt or better, but each card has at one time been very slightly trimmed. The trimming is very subtle, and is impossible to detect without a trained eye. While these cards will never be graded by PSA, SGC, or GAI, they do represent an extraordinary value for the collector who wants beautiful original ungraded examples of these classics, at a far more affordable level than graded examples with a similar appearance. Total 6 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $3,480.00
