1953 Bowman Color Complete Set (160)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,280

27% Vg-Ex to Ex, 42% Vg, and 31% lesser. Presentable complete set of 1953 Bowman Color, highlighted by an attractive example of the key Mickey Mantle card (SGC EX 60, submitted by REA). Keys: #1 Williams (Vg+), 9 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 10 Ashburn (Vg-Ex+), 18 Fox (Pr), 32 Musial (Vg), 33 Reese (Vg), 40 Doby (Vg), 44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle (Gd/Vg), 46 Campanella (Vg), 59 Mantle (SGC EX 60), 65 Roberts (Ex), 80 Kiner (Vg), 81 Slaughter (Vg), 92 Hodges (Gd), 93 Rizzuto/Martin (Fr), 97 Mathews (Fr), 99 Spahn (Fr/Gd), 101 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex), 114 Feller (Ex), 117 Snider (Vg-Ex), 118 Martin (Vg), 121 Berra (Vg), 146 Wynn (Fr), 153 Ford (Gd), and 160 Abrams (Gd). Complete set of this classic 1950s gum-card issue, very pleasing but technically in mid-grade, that represents a particularly outstanding collecting value compared to a higher-graded set. Vintage complete sets in this condition are understandably extremely popular and desirable when available. The equivalent SMR value for just the graded Mickey Mantle card is $650. Total: 160 cards. SOLD FOR $2,280
