Recently submitted and fresh to the hobby comes this high-grade 1955 Topps All-American Football complete set (100) with a total of 32 PSA graded cards including several Hall of Famers, Heisman winners, rookies and stars from the early gridiron days. All graded cards are NM or better, with 17 in NM-MT 8 condition. None in the entire PSA registry are graded higher than the #8 Cafego card in Mint 9! In fact, there are eight cards in this set with ten or fewer higher-grade examples in the PSA pop report (omitting Mint 9 qualifiers since they typically value out to NM 7).

In terms of the other 68 raw cards, these come in similar condition with hardly any qualifiers. This is a tremendous opportunity for the winning bidder to submit a dozen or more of these beauties and achieve sevveral more in official high-grade, low-pop status. This set certainly qualifies as one to get 100% PSA graded and registered; in our opinion, based on the #30 set having an overall rating of 7.26, it certainly has a shot at being ranked Top 30, perhaps even Top 25. (If this was 2019, it would be Top 20 for sure.)

Here are the grading results:

PSA MINT 9: #8 George Cafego (highest graded example)

PSA NM-MT 8: #5 Bobby Grayson (ten graded higher), #12 Otto Graham HOF, #20 Sammy Baugh HOF, #27 Red Grange HOF, #35 Tom Harmon RC, #36 Turk Edwards HOF, #38 Amos Alonzo Stagg RC (nine graded higher), #52 John Lujack (ten graded higher), #54 Edwin Dooley, #55 Frank Merritt, #59 Doc Blanchard RC (only four graded higher), #67 Frankie Albert (only seven graded higher), #76 Angelo Bartelli (only five graded higher), #80 Bennie Oosterbaan (only three graded higher), #85 Sid Luckman HOF (fifteen graded higher), #90 Charley O'Rourke (only five graded higher) and #97 Don Hutson HOF RC.

PSA NM+ 7.5: #15 Ed Kaw and #82 Alex Wojciechowicz (HOF).

PSA NM 7: #6 Niles Kinnick (RC), #16 Knute Rockne, #17 Bob Reynolds, #47 Bo McMillan, #50 Ken Kavanaugh, #56 Ernie Nevers (HOF RC), #64 Benny Friedman, #68 The Four Horsemen, #84 Ace Parker (HOF RC), #89 Marshall Goldberg, #93 Willie Heston and #95 Chris Cagle.
