1955 Topps Complete Set (206)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,644

60% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex), 40% Vg and lesser grades (mostly Vg). This is a very attractive mixed-grade complete set of the classic 1955 Topps issue. Highlighted by the rookie cards of Sandy Koufax and Roberto Clemente, the 1955 Topps also includes many additional key star cards, including Hank Aaron and Jackie Robinson. We have selected five cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Vg-Ex), 2 Williams (80/20 L/R and 30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex), 4 Kaline (Vg-Ex), 28 Banks (Vg-Ex), 31 Spahn (Vg), 47 Aaron (EX/NM 80), 50 Robinson (VG/EX 50), 100 Irvin (Ex), 120 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex/Ex), 123 Koufax RC (EX/NM 80), 124 Killebrew RC (Vg-Ex), 125 Boyer (Vg), 152 Agganis RC (Vg), 155 Mathews (Vg-Ex/Ex), 164 Clemente (VG/EX 50), 187 Hodges (80/20 T/B, otherwise Vg), 189 Rizzuto (Vg), 194 Mays (EX 60), 198 Berra (Vg-Ex), and 210 Snider (20/80 L/R and 90/10 T/B, otherwise Vg). Affordable, attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. The equivalent SMR value for just the five graded cards (not including the 201 ungraded cards) is $2,015. Total 206 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,644
