1953 Bowman Color Complete Set (160)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259

13% Ex-Mt, 58% Vg-Ex to Ex, 17% Vg, and 12% lesser. This is a beautifully assembled, overall mid-grade complete set of 1953 Bowman Color. All cards within this set present with bright colors and crisp images. We have selected four cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Williams (Vg-Ex), 9 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 10 Ashburn (Vg-Ex+), 18 Fox (Ex), 32 Musial (SGC EX/NM+ 82), 33 Reese (SGC EX 60), 40 Doby (Vg+), 44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle (Vg-Ex), 46 Campanella (SGC EX/NM 80), 51 Irvin (Vg-Ex), 55 Durocher (Fr), 57 Boudreau (Ex), 59 Mantle (SGC VG/EX+ 55), 61 Kell (Vg-Ex), 65 Roberts (Vg-Ex+), 80 Kiner (Ex), 81 Slaughter (Gd), 92 Hodges (Vg-Ex+), 93 Rizzuto/Martin (Ex+), 97 Mathews (Vg), 99 Spahn (Ex), 101 Schoendienst (Vg), 114 Feller (Vg-Ex+), 117 Snider (Fr), 118 Martin (Vg-Ex), 121 Berra (Vg), 146 Wynn (Vg-Ex+), 153 Ford (Vg+), and 160 Abrams (Vg). Vintage sets in mid-grade are always extremely desirable, in part because of the tremendous collecting value they represent. The cards are classic, they look great, but they do not cost a fortune compared to higher-grade cards. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this very popular Bowman issue. The equivalent SMR value for just three of the four graded cards (not including the Mantle, factoring in the Musial at the lower whole-grade level, and not including the 156 ungraded cards!) is $975. Total: 160 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,259
