Collection of four partially complete Bowman sets from the following years: 1949, 1950, 1951, and 1952. These four early Bowman partial sets are highlighted by twenty-two Hall of Famers (including Stan Musial, Pee Wee Reese, and Duke Snider) as well as numerous other stars of the day.

Keys: #85b Mize NOF (Vg-Ex) and 100 Hodges RC (Vg-Ex). 2) 1950 Bowman (116 of 252 cards): 78% range from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex+/Ex-Mt) and 22% Vg-Ex with a few lesser. Keys: #35 Slaughter (Ex), 40 Lemon (Ex), 94 Boudreau (Vg-Ex+), 215 Lopat (SGC NM 84), 217 Stengel (Ex), and 229 Frisch (Vg+). 3) 1951 Bowman (137 of 324 cards): 85% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (averaging Ex) and 15% Vg. Keys: #6 Newcombe (Gd/Vg), 31 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 53 Lemon (Ex), 78 Wynn (Vg-Ex+), 143 Kluszewski (Ex), 198 Irvin RC (SGC VG/EX+ 55), 219 Woodling RC (Vg), 232 Fox RC (Ex), 233 Durocher (Vg-Ex+), and 275 Harris (Ex). 4) 1952 Bowman (123 of 252 cards): 76% Vg-Ex to Ex (including a few better) and 24% Vg with a few lesser. Keys: #2 Thomson (Vg), 8 Reese (Vg), 11 Kiner (Vg-Ex), 21 Fox (paper chip on front, otherwise Vg), 24 Furillo (Vg+), 30 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex+), 75 Kell (Vg-Ex), 80 Hodges (Vg), 116 Snider (Vg), 156 Spahn (Vg), 158 Harris (Ex-Mt), and 196 Musial (SGC EX+ 70). This is an extremely consistent collection with reference to condition. These four Bowman partial sets are a collection unto themselves and could also serve as the foundation for the assembly of a very attractive Bowman baseball complete set run. Total: 436 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,851.25
