1951 Bowman Complete Set (324)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,643.75

Relatively low-grade but still attractive set of 1951 Bowman Baseball: 95% range from Pr to Very Good (averaging Good overall), 5% Vg-Ex. This classic 324-card set includes many Hall of Famers and stars, highlighted by the rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays (both of which have been graded and encapsulated by PSA). Keys: #1 Ford RC (Gd-Vg), 2 Berra (Fr), 3 Roberts (Vg), 7 Hodges (Gd-Vg), 26 Rizzuto (Fr-Gd), 30 Feller (Vg), 31 Campanella (Gd-Vg), 32 Snider (tape in all four corners, otherwise Ex), 46 Kell (Vg), 50 Mize (Gd-Vg), 53 Lemon (Gd-Vg), 58 Slaughter (gd-Vg), 78 Wynn (Vg to Vg-Ex), 80 Reese (Vg), 134 Spahn (Vg), 143 Kluszewski (Vg), 151 Doby (Vg-Ex), 165 Williams (Gd-Vg), 181 Stengel (Gd), 186 Ashburn (Vg-Ex), 198 Irvin RC (Gd), 218 Lopat (Pr), 219 Woodling RC (Fr-Gd), 232 Fox RC (Vg-Ex), 233 Durocher (Gd), 253 Mantle RC (PSA PR-FR 1) , 260 Erskine RC (Gd), 290 Dickey (autographed in blue ink, otherwise Vg), 291 Henrich (Gd), 295 Lopez (Gd), 305 Mays RC (PSA GOOD 2) , 306 Piersall RC (Fr), 323 Adcock RC (Gd), and 324 Pramesa RC (Gd). One of the great things about card collecting is that the most classic card sets can be collected in any condition, on any budget. This set will never top the PSA Registry. It is far from Mint condition, but it is a still a very attractive set which offers an outstanding value, and a rarely offered relatively affordable alternative to a higher-grade set of this classic early 1950s Bowman issue. Total 324 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
