1955 Topps Brooklyn Dodgers Collection (238)
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,480.00
Collection of 238 assorted 1955 Topps cards, all of Brooklyn Dodgers! This massive accumulation of cards, devoted exclusively to the Brooklyn Dodgers from their greatest season, is highlighted by stars such as Sandy Koufax (two cards), Jackie Robinson (six cards), Duke Snider (two cards), Gil Hodges (three cards), etc. There are only eighteen different Dodgers in the 1955 Topps set, so obviously there are many duplicates of most cards in the collection (between two and twenty-four of each). The collection includes the following (quantites in parenthesis): #5 Gilliam (12), 19 Herman (19), 25 Podres (10), 40 (22), 50 Jackie Robinson (6; two Ex, two Vg-Ex, two Vg), 51 (24), 75 Amoros RC (15), 90 (21), 92 Zimmer RC (15), 108 (19), 111 (16), 123 Sandy Koufax RC (PSA EX 5 and Vg), 156 Black (11), 180 Labine (12), 187 Hodges (3; Ex and two Vg-Ex), 195 (13), 199 (16), 210 Snider (2; Vg-Ex and Gd). This is a very clean and attractive (though somewhat improbable!) collection. To put the quantity of Dodgers cards in this lot in perspective, appreciate that the entire 1955 set includes only 206 cards. This is more than a set's worth of cards, all Brooklyn Dodgers. Condition ranges from Vg to Ex-Mt with approximately equal distribution at each grade level, averaging Vg-Ex/Ex overall. Total 238 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,480.00
