Lot # 709 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1954 Bowman Complete Set (224)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,645

35% Ex to Ex-Mt (includes a few Nr/Mt), 65% Vg to Vg-Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). This is a very attractive medium- to high-grade complete set of one of the most overlooked (and compared to many other sets, most reasonably valued) classic bubble-gum card issues from the golden age of the 1950s. Eleven cards have been graded by SGC or PSA (six of which we submitted), including Mickey Mantle. Keys: #1 Rizzuto (PSA VG-EX 4), 6 Fox (Vg), 15 Ashburn (Ex), 45 Kiner (Vg), 50 Kell (Vg), 58 Reese (SGC EX+ 70), 57 Wilhelm (Vg-Ex), 62 Slaughter (Vg-Ex), 64 Mathews (SGC VG/EX 50), 65 Mantle (SGC EX 60), 66 Piersall (Vg), 89 Mays (PSA EX 5), 90 Campanella (PSA EX-MT 6), 95 Roberts (Ex), 110 Schoendienst (Vg/Vg-Ex), 132 Feller (SGC VG 40), 138 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 145 Martin (Vg/Vg-Ex), 161 Berra (miscut on the bottom, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), 164 Wynn (Vg), 170 Snider (SGC VG 40), 177 Ford (SGC VG 40), 196 Lemon (Ex), 214 (PSA EX-MT 6), and 224 (PSA EX-MT 6). Crisp, clean, and extremely attractive complete set. The SMR value of just the six EX and EX-MT graded cards is $800 (this does not include the additional five cards graded VG and VG-EX, or the 213 ungraded cards). Total 224 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,645
