1948 Bowman Original-Owner Collection (64) Including 18 Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $7,703

Presented is a collection of sixty-four cards (thirty-six different) from the 1948 Bowman baseball set, highlighted by eighteen Hall of Famers, including key rookie cards of Yogi Berra, Warren Spahn, and Stan Musial. This is a very attractive collection, including three-quarters of a complete set from Bowman's inaugural issue, which has been consigned to this auction by the family of the original owner. We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. This collection consists of the following: Two #1 Elliott (both Ex), two 2 Blackwell (Ex-Mt and Ex), two 3 Kiner RC (Nr/Mt and Ex-Mt), two 4 Mize (Nr/Mt and Ex-Mt), two 5 Feller (Nr/Mt and Ex-Mt), two 6 Berra RC (EX/NM 80 and Ex+), three 9, two 10, two 11, 12 Sain RC (Ex-Mt), 14 Reynolds RC (Ex+), two 15, two 17 Slaughter (Ex-Mt+ and Ex), two 18 Spahn RC (EX+ 70 and Vg-Ex+), 19 Henrich (Ex-Mt+), 21, 23, two 25, 27, 31, 32, two 33, two 35 Stirnweiss RC (both Ex), 36 Musial RC (VG/EX+ 55), four 37, five 38 Schoendienst RC (Nr/Mt, two Ex+, and two Ex), 39, 40 Marion RC (Nr/Mt), 41, 42, 43, two 44, three 45 Sauer RC (Ex-Mt+, Ex-Mt, and Ex), three 46, 47 Thomson RC (Ex-Mt), and 48 Koslo (Vg-Ex). The ungraded cards range in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt with one lesser. In addition to its significant break-value, the thirty-six different cards included in this original-owner collection could serve as an outstanding foundation for the assembly of a very high quality complete set of this classic black-and-white Bowman issue. Total: 64 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $7,703
