Exceptional 1948-1974 Topps and Bowman Star and Hall of Famer PSA-Graded Collection (70)

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $8,225

Outstanding and very carefully assembled collection of seventy Topps and Bowman baseball cards, spanning the years 1948 to 1974, with representation of twenty-two different quality issues, comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers, major stars, and key cards. This is not a random group of cards. This collection was assembled one card at a time, over a period of many years, by a very discriminating advanced collector. His collecting specialty was older cards (primarily tobacco and 1930s cards) but he also enjoyed assembling this very substantial representative collection of postwar cards, comprised exclusively of favorite stars, each carefully chosen for condition and overall appearance. This is a great looking and very substantial high-grade group of quality star cards! Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA (except four SGC). One is graded MINT 9, seven are NM-MT 8, eight are NM 7, twenty-nine are EX-MT 6, nineteen are EX 5, five are VG-EX 4, and one is graded VG 3. 1) 1948 Bowman: #17 Slaughter (NM-MT 8). 2) 1949 Bowman (3 cards): #29 Kiner (NM-MT 8), 85 Mize/no name (NM-MT 8), and 226 Snider RC (SGC EX 60). 3) 1950 Bowman: #148 Wynn (EX-MT 6). 4) 1951 Bowman (2 cards): #30 Feller (NM 7) and 232 Fox RC (SGC EX 60). 5) 1952 Bowman: #23 Lemon (NM-MT 8). 6) 1952 Topps (2 cards): #26 Irvin (NM-MT 8) and 65 Slaughter (VG-EX 4, black back). 7) 1953 Bowman Color (6 cards): #9 Rizzuto (EX-MT 6), 10 Ashburn (SGC EX 60), 44 Berra/Bauer/Mantle (EX 5), 80 Kiner (NM 7), 121 Berra (VG 3), and 153 Ford (VG-EX 4). 8) 1953 Bowman B&W: #15 Mize (EX-MT 6). 9) 1953 Topps: #228 Newhouser (EX-MT 6). 10) 1954 Bowman: #110 Schoendienst (EX-MT 6). 11) 1954 Topps: #17 Rizzuto (NM 7). 12) 1955 Topps (7 cards): #2 Williams (EX 5), 4 Kaline (EX-MT 6), 123 Koufax RC (EX 5, we grade this card VG due to a stain), 124 Killebrew RC (EX-MT 6), 155 Mathews (EX-MT 6), 187 Hodges (EX 5), and 194 Mays (EX 5). 13) 1956 Topps (13 cards): #8 Alston (NM 7), 10 Spahn (EX-MT 6), 15 Banks (EX-MT 6), 20 Kaline (EX-MT 6), 30 Robinson (EX 5), 31 Aaron (EX 5), 33 Clemente (NM 7), 110 Berra (EX 5), 130 Mays (EX-MT 6), 145 Hodges (EX-MT 6), 150 Snider (EX 5), 181 Martin (EX-MT 6), and 200 Feller (EX-MT 6). 14) 1957 Topps (7 cards): #24 Mazeroski RC (NM-MT 8), 30 Reese (NM 7), 35 Robinson RC (NM 7), 70 Ashburn (EX-MT 6), 170 Snider (EX-MT 6), 400 Dodgers' Sluggers (EX-MT 6), and 407 Mantle/Berra (EX 5). 15) 1958 Topps (7 cards): #52 Clemente (EX 5), 162 Hodges (EX-MT 6), 187 Koufax (EX-MT 6), 310 Banks (EX 5), 320 Ford (EX 5), 375 Reese (EX 5), and 440 Mathews (VG-EX 4). 16) 1959 Topps (6 cards): #20 Snider (EX-MT 6), 150 Musial (EX-MT 6), 202 Maris (EX-MT 6), 387 Drysdale (EX-MT 6), 430 Ford (VG-EX 4), and 435 Robinson (EX-MT 6). 17) 1961 Topps (3 cards): #1 Maris (VG-EX 4), 344 Koufax (EX-MT 6), and 435 Cepeda (SGC EX 60). 18) 1963 Topps (2 cards): #472 Brock (EX-MT 6) and 540 Clemente (EX-MT 6). 19) 1965 Topps: #377 Stargell (NM-MT 8). 20) 1966 Topps: #30 Rose (NM 7). 21) 1974 Topps: #283 Schmidt (MINT 9). 22) Also included: 1948 Leaf (2 cards): #11 Rizzuto RC (EX-MT 6) and 59 Appling (EX 5).
