The majority of the set grades PSA 7 or 8. If you’re on a quest to build or bolster your Topps sets from the mid-1950s, the auction will feature complete sets from 1954 and 1955 offered individually in PSA 7 and 8, with a few better. The key rookie cards of Hank Aaron, Al Kaline, Ernie Banks, and Tommy Lasorda from 1954 and Roberto Clemente, Sandy Koufax, and Harmon Killebrew from 1955 all grade PSA 8.

Arguably the six most iconic cards from the classic 1933 Goudey series are the quartet of Babe Ruth cards and the low and high number Lou Gehrigs. This event features beautiful examples of all six graded by PSA, including the elusive #53 yellow background Ruth in a PSA VG-EX 4.

“We’re very excited about the strength of this auction on the heels of our blockbuster spring sale,” says REA President Brian Dwyer. “There is tremendous quality within this auction, which is a testament to the collectors who have gathered these iconic cards and built these high-end sets.”
