Here is an amazing 1955 near set, the first full baseball issue by Topps to go with a horizontal design. This is a virtually crease-free collection with sharp corners and vibrant color. The graded cards feature some of the best players of all-time: Ted Williams (#2) BVG EX 5, Jim Gilliam (#5) PSA VG-EX 4, Ernie Banks (#28) PSA VG-EX 4, Warren Spahn (#31) PSA EX 5, Hank Aaron (#47) PSA EX 5, Charlie White (#103) GAI EX 5, Ted Kluszewski (#120) PSA EX 5, Sandy Koufax rookie (#123) PSA EX 5, Harmon Killebrew rookie (#124) PSA EX-MT 6 and Ken Boyer (#125) PSA NM-MT 8 (oc). Some of the unslabbed stars also stack up quite well for 50 year-old cards: Dusty Rhodes (#1) EX, Al Kaline (#4) VG-EX, Jackie Robinson (#50) EX, Eddie Mathews (#155) VG-EX, Gil Hodges (#187) VG-EX, Phil Rizzuto (#189) EX-MT, Willie Mays (#194) VG-EX, Yogi Berra (#198) VG-EX and Duke Snider (#210) VG-EX to EX. The Roberto Clemente (#164) has nice gloss and color and no creases or paper wrinkles. With centering issues in both directions and minor corner wear, the Clemente rookie is VG-EX to EX. The only card not in this batch is Ed Roebuck (#195). The bulk of the high numbered cards (#161-210) are in EX to EX-MT condition, with a handful on either side of that range. About 50% of the lower numbers are EX to EX-MT with a few better. Otherwise, some minor corner wear and some off centering keep many of the lower numbered cards in the VG-EX range with a few lesser. Again, good color and virtually no creases make this lot standout.
