Auction: 2019 Fall
Lot #: 1169
Auction: Postwar Baseball - 1950s Cards
Original unissued artwork featuring an unidentified player from the Detroit Tigers to be used in the 1952 Bowman baseball series. This artwork was created (but never used) by Bowman to be included in its 1952 baseball series. The Bowman sets from the early 1950s are highly regarded in part for their use of original paintings. All Bowman original artworks are rare and examples from the baseball-card sets from the early 1950s are especially highly prized. This is a magnificent example of an original Bowman artwork. As is always the case with these original early 1950s card artworks, there are also standard production-related glue remnants on the blank reverse. This is a very attractive artwork, one of the few survivors from the files of Bowman, dating from the heart of the legendary bubble-gum war of the early 1950s. Clean and crisp with brilliant colors. The artwork measures 4 x 6-1/8 inches and is in overall Excellent condition. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
