1952 Bowman Complete Set (252)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,252

10% Ex, 50% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 40% range from Pr to Gd (mostly Fr-Gd). This is a very pleasing mixed-grade set, highlighted by a particularly strong Vg example of key card #101 Mickey Mantle. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Berra (Gd), 2 Thomson (Vg), 4 Roberts (Fr), 5 Minoso RC (Gd), 8 Reese (Gd), 11 Kiner (Pr), 17 Lopat (Vg), 21 Fox (Ex), 23 Lemon (Vg), 24 Furillo (Vg-Ex), 27 Garagiola (Gd), 30 Schoendienst (Gd), 33 McDougald RC (Vg-Ex), 43 Feller (Vg), 44 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 52 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 53 Ashburn (Pr), 75 Kell (Gd), 80 Hodges (Vg), 101 Mantle (SGC VG 40), 116 Snider (Vg-Ex), 128 Newcombe (Ex), 142 Wynn (Gd), 145 Mize (Vg-Ex), 146 Durocher (Vg), 156 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 162 Irvin (Vg), 196 Musial (SGC GOOD 30), 217 Stengel (Gd), 218 Mays (SGC VG 40), 232 Slaughter (Gd), and 252 Crosetti (Fr-Gd). It's easy to see why sets in mixed and lower grades put together by collectors long ago are always in high demand. They are great-looking cards, they don't cost a fortune as do high-grade sets, and represent a great collecting value. A relatively affordable yet still very attractive complete set of this classic, early 1950s Bowman issue. Total: 252 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,252
