Lot # 479 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1952 Bowman Complete Set (252)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

37% Ex, 44% Vg-Ex, 15% Vg, and 4% lesser. This is a very pleasing overall mid-grade set, with 81% of the cards ranging from Vg-Ex to Ex, and highlighted by an extremely attractive Vg example of key card #101 Mickey Mantle. Keys: #1 Berra (Gd), 4 Roberts (Vg), 5 Minoso RC (Vg-Ex), 8 Reese (Vg-Ex+), 11 Kiner (Vg-Ex), 21 Fox (Vg-Ex+), 23 Lemon (Ex), 30 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex+), 33 McDougald RC (Ex), 43 Feller (Ex), 44 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 52 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex+), 53 Ashburn (Vg-Ex, 75 Kell (Vg-Ex+), 80 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 101 Mantle (PSA VG 3), 116 Snider (Vg-Ex+), 142 Wynn (Vg-Ex+), 145 Mize (Vg-Ex), 146 Durocher (Ex), 156 Spahn (Vg-Ex), 162 Irvin (Ex), 196 Musial (Vg), 217 Stengel (Gd/Vg), 218 Mays (Vg+), 232 Slaughter (Vg), and 252 Crosetti (Ex). It's easy to see why mid- and-mixed grade sets are always in high demand. They are so often great-looking cards (as is the case with this set), they don't cost a fortune as do high-grade sets, and represent a great collecting value. This is an exceptionally attractive yet still relatively affordable complete set of this classic early 1950s Bowman issue. Total: 252 cards. SOLD FOR $1,800
