    Description

    1954-55 Topps "World On Wheels" Complete Set (180). In the 1950's, the car was king. As with many other trends, Topps was right on top of it with a trading card set befitting the current craze. This edition showcased cars, trains, trucks, etc. with both present day and from the past. Today, Topps' "World On Wheels" series is one of the most popular vehicle related releases, particularly the scarce #161-180 high number run which concludes the series. Card #'s 171-180 are blue backs. Twenty four cards have been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA NM-MT 8: 11 cards w/#'s 20, 25, 84, 102, 107, 112, 122, 124, 155, 156 and 173; PSA NM+ 7.5: 4 cards w/#'s 22, 123, 129 and 177; PSA NM 7: 6 cards w/#'s 59, 60, 68, 88, 136 and 178 (MC); PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, #7; PSA EX 5: 2 cars w/#'s 14 and 45. Overall the set grades 18% NM to NM/MT, 82% EX to EX/MT (largely EX-MT) with some slightly lesser and a couple miscut. SMR value for graded cards exceeds $1,275.
