I Finally Own A Sandy Koufax 1955 Topps Rookie Card (Slabbed a PSA 3)!

There are certain cards every collector should own within the confines of his or her collecting interests. As a vintage collector and lifelong Dodgers' fan, a rookie of the one and only Sandy Koufax is one of those must-have pieces of cardboard. It took me far too long to obtain one but I finally pulled the trigger and landed an eye-appealing copy at a reasonable price.

Considering how much key rookie cards have jumped in price in recent years I find Sandy's rookie to still be relatively affordable in low and even mid-grade. Compare Koufax with some of the other luminaries and it's surprising, although in fairness while the last six years of his career were legendary it's peak and nothing productive before that. The longevity was not there and it took Koufax a while to get to those six years, so maybe it's not all that surprising.

Either way it benefits me and this gorgeous PSA 3 rookie is now mine and the obvious central cog in my quite modest PC of the The Left Hand of God.


  1. Congratulations! Lol. I can't even afford his second year card. I've been looking to add the 56T Koufax for a few years now.
