Elite 1950s Topps Baseball Registry Sets To Be Offered In Dedicated Heritage AuctionThe Topps Company redefined the trading card collecting hobby during the 1950s, and two of the most coveted sets from that era were heavily pursued by the most condition-conscious hobbyists at Heritage Auctions’ PSA Set Registry Auction in Dallas, which closed March 23.

The 1955 and 1958 Topps sets, which rank second and fourth, respectively, on the PSA Set Registry, were sold as individual single-card lots in the Extended Bidding format sale.

Debut cards from such baseball immortals as Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente, Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins infielder Harmon Killebrew and New York Yankees outfielder Roger Maris were among the finest available.

The top items sold in the auction included, but were not limited to:
