Lot 122. Red Man Tobacco 1953-55 Card Group.
Among the most splendidly designed categories of the 1950's were Red Man Tobacco's baseball issues of 1952 through '55. Here presented is an expansive collection from those productions. All of those retain their tabs, but the central feature throughout is the uttlerly fresh bearing of these cards. Infrequently, we find isolated superficial creases - induced, we surmise, from their original packaging. That confessed, we must emphasize that these are basically unhandled - outstanding corners and sparkling gloss. We've submitted a few of these to PSA for professional grading (24, in all) and typically, they insulted most of them with their unforgiving scrutiny. (As an aside, they mis-identified a couple of them; they can grade cards, but they're not quite sure what they are.) In any event, there are 117 total here which includes 21 duplicates. The representation is biased toward 1954 and '55, with seven cards from the '53 issue. And though none of these years is complete, this collection is guaranteed to strengthen the foremost of hobby holdings.
