Description1955 Topps Sandy Koufax #123 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. The mighty Brooklyn Dodgers pantheon -- while unknowingly getting ready to finally claim a long-awaited World Championship -- prepared to add a new member in 1955. A youthful but deceptively innocent-looking pitcher, Sandy Koufax -- seen here in his rookie-card appearance -- stood ready to join such heroes as Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Roy Campanella and Gil Hodges, and the team's fortunes would change forever. So, too, did the collecting hobby, as the debut-year collectible of Koufax has never relinquished its status as one of the most visually captivating gum cards ever made. The odds against Koufax someday becoming the sport's first three-time Cy Young Award winner, or that he would figure in three victorious World Series match-ups were about as slim as the chances of, say, coming across a Sandy Koufax rookie that is close to Mint condition. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. One of sixteen at this grade level with only twenty-six examples receiving a higher rating.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
