Extremely attractive complete set of 1954 Wilson Franks cards, entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC. This complete set has the extra special distinction of having originally belonged to pioneer collector Lionel Carter (each card is pedigreed by SGC attesting to this fact). The set is highlighted by Hall of Famers Ted Williams (one of his rarest cards), Roy Campanella, Bob Feller, Nelson Fox, Red Schoendienst, and Enos Slaughter. Sixteen cards grade Excellent or better, and four cards range from Vg to Vg-Ex. SGC Grading Composite: EX/NM 6 (4 cards): Feller (HOF), Hodges, McMillan, and Stephens. EX+ 5.5 (2 cards): Erskine and Groth. EX 5 (10 cards): Campanella (HOF), Ennis, Fain, Fox (HOF), Jablonski, Pafko, Sauer, Schoendienst (HOF), Slaughter (HOF), and T. Williams (HOF). VG/EX 4 (1 card): Richards. VG 3 (3 cards): Hack, Kuenn, and White. The Wilson Franks set is highly prized by collectors as one of the most attractive and desirable of all 1950s regional food issues. Rarely offered in complete set form, this is a particularly outstanding complete set of this very attractive issue, including especially strong examples of key cards Roy Campanella, Bob Feller, and Ted Williams. This is only the second complete set we have ever offered in the last twenty years! Total: 20 cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate (open).
