Lot # 480 (of 1594)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1950s and Early 1960s Regionals and Unusual Card Collection (18)

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $1,292.50

Collection of eighteen cards and items from the 1950s and early 1960s, including Hall of Famers and stars, and representing three different unusual issues. 1) 1953 Stahl-Meyer Franks: Roy Campanella (SGC VG 40). This is one of the rarest and most attractive of all Campy cards, and also one of the most difficult to find in any grade. Stahl-Meyers were regionally issued in the New York area, one card per package, with Stahl-Meyer Franks. They are usually found with serious condition problems relating to their method of issue, including creases and hot dog stains. This is a very attractive example with a strong Excellent appearance but which technically grades lower due to a couple of minute, barely detectable creases relating to how these cards were issued. We grade this card Vg-Ex. 2) 1954 NY Journal-American: Roy Campanella (Ex). 3) 1961 Chemstrand Iron-On Patches Near-Complete Set (8 of the 9 in the set, plus 8 duplicates, for a total 16): two Banks, three Berra, two Fox, Groat, two Kaline, four Killebrew, Mays, and Spahn. While not technically "cards," Chemstrand patches have always been appreciated and collected exactly as cards. All are Nr/Mt with the exception of one of the Kalines which is Ex. This is a very interesting assortment, with representation from several unusual issues, highlighted by a particularly sharp looking 1953 Stahl-Meyer of Roy Campanella. Total 18 items. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $1,292.50
