Default 1955 Ashland or Aetna Oil basketball cards - prices??

Does anyone know what kind of prices these cards bring? I think it was a 96-card set consisting of 12-card team sets of the following college basketball teams: Kentucky, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Murray State, Morehead State, West Virginia, and Marshall, I think.

Default Ashland/Aetna Oil


I'm sending you a private - more detailed message as well.

Price - condition is huge on these cards. They came in strips of 6 cards - perforated. People try to trim the perforation and also trim the sides - not so good. They were handed out by gas station attendants - easier to find in rougher condition.

Beckett has some prices in their basketball guide.

Here is a range I've seen with some weighing from Beckett too.

There are very condition dependent - thus the range.

Louisville $20-$60. The coach is $50-100.
Western Kentucky $20-60. The coach is $100-200.
Eastern $20-$60 Coach $50-100
Kentucky $30-75 Rupp card $250-500
Marshall $40-100 Coach $60-125
Morehead $40-100 Coach $60-125
Murray $50-125 Coach $60-125
West Virginia $50-$150 Hundley ($250-500) Coach $75-200

Aetna cards demand a slight premium over Ashland cards.

I hope this helps...and please check out my private email for my need list.

Thanks, Pat
