1953 to 1963 Topps SGC-Graded Hall of Famer Collection (5)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,938
High-grade collection of five Topps cards featuring key Hall of Famers spanning the years 1953 to 1963, including extremely strong examples of Sandy Koufax’s and Pete Rose's rookie cards. Every card in this collection is a long-recognized card-collecting classic. REA has submitted each of these cards to SGC for grading: 1) 1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle (SGC VG/EX 50, solid Ex or better card downgraded due to a very light wrinkle near the upper right corner on the reverse). 2) 1954 Topps #1 Ted Williams (SGC NM 84). 3) 1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron (SGC EX 60). 4) 1955 Topps #123 Sandy Koufax (SGC EX 60). 5) 1963 Topps #537 Pete Rose (SGC EX 60). This is a very sharp and impressive collection comprised exclusively of high-grade key card classics, assembled one card at a time by an old-time hobbyist for his personal collection. The equivalent SMR value for four of the five SGC-graded cards (not including the 1953 Topps Mantle VG/EX 50) is $2,240. Total 5 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
