A Scarce 1958 Dodgers Bell Brand Set at MHCC Auctions

Mile High Card Company has their April 2014 auction up, and it includes a very rare near-set of 1958 Dodgers Bell Brand cards still enclosed within their original cellophane wrappers.  A total of 9 cards are a part of the auction; only missing the Johnny Podres card for completion.  See them below.

Since I find it unlikely that I'll every complete a full set of these, I thought I would share this auction with all of you.  BTW, I do have one of the cards in my collection - it's a Roy Campanella card in PSA 6 condition.

As I'm sure you know, this set is extremely scarce, and to find them still in their packaging is incredible... No, unbelievable.  Generally, 1958 Dodgers Bell Brand cards are rare in any condition.  They were inserted into packs of Bell Brand Potato Chips, so they are often found stained with chip grease or badly damaged from being in those bags.  The cards measure 3" x 4".  At the time of this posting, this auction lot is already priced over $9,000.  Wow!

Just to be complete, below is a pic of the Johnny Podres 1958 Bell Brand Baseball card, so that you can get a look at what a complete 10-card set looks like.
