    Description

    1955 Topps Sandy Koufax Rookie #123 SGC 92 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 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. One of eight examples at this grade level, with only seven examples rated higher.
