80% range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex overall) with a few Nr/Mt, and 20% are Vg. This is a very attractive medium-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 Ted Williams and Willie Mays. We have selected eight cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Rhodes (Ex), 2 Williams (Vg-Ex), 4 Kaline (EX/NM 80), 28 Banks (Vg), 31 Spahn (Ex), 47 Aaron (VG 40), 50 Robinson (Vg-Ex), 92 Zimmer RC (Ex), 100 Irvin (Ex), 120 Kluszewski (Vg), 123 Koufax RC (EX 60), 124 Killebrew RC (EX 60), 125 Boyer (Ex), 152 Agganis RC (Vg), 155 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 164 Clemente RC (VG/EX 50), 187 Hodges (Gd), 189 Rizzuto (Ex-Mt), 194 Mays (EX+ 70), 198 Berra (VG 40), and 210 Snider (VG/EX 50). Attractive mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this, especially when the set is on the strong side of the term "mid-grade" and the many stars and key cards are so pleasing and consistent with the rest of the set, always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. This is a sharp-looking set in an extremely desirable grade! Total: 206 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,963
