Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $4,993.75

28% Nr/Mt to Nr/Mt-Mt, 60% Ex to Ex-Mt, 12% Vg to Vg-Ex. This is a gorgeous high-grade complete set (including #66 Williams) of 1954 Bowman cards, needing just a few upgrades. A strong SGC EX+ 70 example of the rare Ted Williams card highlights the set.
