1955 Bowman Complete Set (320)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,015

21% Ex-Mt (including a few better), 55% Ex, and 24% Vg-Ex (including some Vg and a few with slight trims). Complete set of 320 cards highlighted by many Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Kaline, and Banks. We have selected three cards from this set to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (Vg), 10 Rizzuto (Ex), 22 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 23 Kaline (Ex-Mt), 33 Fox (Ex-Mt), 37 Reese (Vg-Ex), 59 Ford (Ex+), 60 Slaughter (Ex), 68 Howard RC (Vg), 103 Mathews (possible slight trim, otherwise Nr/Mt), 130 Ashburn (no top border, otherwise Ex-Mt), 134 Feller (Ex), 158 Hodges (Ex-Mt), 168 Berra (possible slight trim, otherwise Nr/Mt), 171 Roberts (Vg), 179 Aaron (Vg-Ex), 184 Mays (EX/NM 80), 197 Kiner (Ex+), 202 Mantle (VG/EX+ 55), and 242 Banks ("Authentic" due to slight trim). The 1955 Bowman cards (Bowman's final baseball-card issue) have always been very popular due to their classic television-style and inclusion of so many stars. Consigned from a very old-time collection. Overall a very crisp and clean complete set assembled in the early days of organized collecting, in very pleasing condition with tremendous visual appeal, yet far more affordable than a NR/MT or better set. Classic 1950s sets in this condition when available are always very popular. This is exactly the type of vintage set that to so many collectors represents the very best value. Total: 320 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,015
