1953 Bowman "Television & Radio Stars" Unopened Cello-Pack Collection (22)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $948

Collection of twenty-two unopened cello packs from the 1953 Bowman "Television & Radio Stars" nonsport series. This popular issue features numerous stars from NBC's TV and radio programs of the early 1950s. Each cello pack contains a total of fifteen cards for a total of 330 cards. This collection of packs is in exceptional condition, with many packs maintaining their tightly wrapped seal. The majority of the packs display minor tearing along the edges of the thin and extremely fragile cello wrapping, but these technical flaws do not compromise the integrity of the unopened pack or detract from their overall appearance in any way. Two packs have loosened almost entirely along the back seal. While no guarantees can be made with respect to the grading of unopened material, there is the very real possibility that within these packs are numerous MINT examples that would be ideal candidates for professional grading. This is an outstanding and very substantial collection of original unopened cello packs from this popular 1950s nonsport issue. Total: 22 packs. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $948
