Description1958 Bell Brand Dodgers SGC-Graded Complete Set (10). John Esch collection. It was the spring of 1958 and America's manifest destiny had reached major league baseball. The Giants and the Dodgers moved from the New York to the sunshine of California. Bell Brand Potato Chips was early to honor the tam with cards placed inside bags of potato chips. Offered is a complete 10-card set of their first cards from 1958. Includes: SGC EX/MT 6: 1 card, Johnny Podres (SP); SGC EX 5: 5 cards, Roy Campanella, Don Drysdale, Gil Hodges, Sandy Koufax, and Pee Wee Reese (SP); SGC VG-EX+ 4.5: 2 cards, Gino Cimoli (SP) and Jim Gilliam; SGC VG/EX 4: 1 card, Don Zimmer; SGC Good 2: 1 card, Duke Snider (SP). More than one seems to be graded on the conservative side in our opinion. A very nice overall set of this condition sensitive issue.

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.
