1950 Bowman Complete Set (252)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,133
The 1950 Bowman set is often overlooked by collectors simply because it does not include a Mantle or Mays rookie, but this was a landmark set in its day, being the first postwar baseball issue to feature full-color artwork instead of photographs. We rarely have the opportunity to offer a complete set of 1950 Bowman and over the years have consistently found it to be among the most elusive sets of the era. Condition is 10% Ex, 81% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 9% lesser. Keys: #1 Parnell RC (Fr), 6 Feller (Vg), 8 Kell (Gd), 11 Rizzuto (Pr), 19 Spahn (Vg), 21 Reese (Vg), 22 Robinson (Vg), 23 Newcombe RC (Vg), 32 Roberts (Vg), 33 Kiner (Vg), 35 Slaughter (Gd), 37 Appling (Vg-Ex), 39 Doby (Vg-Ex), 40 Lemon (Vg-Ex), 43 Doerr (Ex-Mt), 46 Berra (Vg-Ex), 58 Furillo (Vg), 59 Branca (Vg-Ex), 62 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex), 71 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex), 75 Campanella (Vg+), 77 Snider (Vg-Ex), 84 Ashburn (Gd), 94 Boudreau (Vg-Ex), 98 Williams (O/C with no left or bottom borders, otherwise Ex-Mt), 112 Hodges (Vg-Ex), 139 Mize (Vg-Ex), 148 Wynn (Vg+), 217 Stengel (Ex), 219 Bauer (Vg+), 220 Durocher (Ex), 229 Frisch (Ex). Relatively affordable mid-grade sets of classic issues from the 1950s such as this (let alone a hard-to-find 1950 Bowman set) always generate tremendous collector interest. This is the type of vintage set that to many collectors represents the very best value. This is a very attractive complete set of one of the most important and classic of all early Bowman issues. Total: 252 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,133
