Lot # 516 (of 1594)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1953 Bowman Color Complete Set Minus 1 (159 of 160)

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $2,937.50

33% Ex to Ex-Mt, 37% Vg-Ex, and 30% Vg (with a few slightly lesser). 159 of the 160 cards in the set, missing only #59 Mantle. The set has been very carefully assembled and is virtually crease-free, with even the lowest-graded cards being attractive examples downgraded due to honest corner wear. We have selected four cards to be graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Williams (Vg-Ex), 9 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 10 Ashburn (Ex), 18 Fox (PSA EX-MT 6), 32 Musial (80/20 T/B and ink on reverse, otherwise Ex-Mt), 33 Reese (Vg), 44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle (Vg), 46 Campanella (PSA EX-MT 6), 65 Roberts (PSA VG-EX 4), 80 Kiner (Vg), 81 Slaughter (Vg-Ex), 92 Hodges (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex-Mt), 93 Rizzuto/Martin (Vg), 97 Mathews (Vg), 99 Spahn (30/70 T/B, otherwise Ex), 101 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex), 114 Feller (Vg-Ex), 117 Snider (PSA EX 5), 118 Martin (100/0 T/B, appears hand-cut from a sheet), 121 Berra (Vg), 143 Lopez (Vg-Ex), 146 Wynn (30/70 L/R, otherwise Ex), 153 Ford (Vg/Vg-Ex), 160 Abrams (Vg). This is a very attractive near-complete set of this classic 1950s gum card issue in a grade representing an outstanding value compared to a higher-graded set, but without sacrificing exceptional visual appeal. Total 159 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500+. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
