1949 Bowman Partial Set (107/240) with 67 Graded Cards

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,560

Presented is a partial set of 1949 Bowman baseball consisting of 107 different cards out of 240 in a complete set, highlighted by fourteen Hall of Famers, including the key rookie card of Roy Campanella. Sixty-seven cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (forty-nine) and SCD (eighteen). 1949 Bowman is the most underrated set in terms of rarity among Topps and Bowman sets issued between 1948 and 1955. Cards from this set are extremely hard to find in high grade in part because these cards often naturally have soft corners due to the quality of the paper stock on which they are printed. PSA Grading Composite: EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #46 Roberts (HOF) and 112. EX+ 5.5 (1 card): #225 (SCD EX+ 5.5). EX 5 (9 cards): #71 (MC), 85 Mize (HOF), 109, 115, 125, 126, 131, 139, and 239. VG-EX+ 3.5 (4 cards): #33 Spahn (HOF), 43, 122, and 124. VG-EX 4 (26 cards): #3 (SCD VG-EX 4), 24 Musial (HOF), 26 Kell (HOF), 27 Feller (HOF), 36 Reese (HOF, SCD VG-EX 4), 39, 44, 55, 83, 91, 96, 98 Rizzuto (HOF, SCD VG-EX 4), 105, 106, 109 (SCD VG-EX 4), 117, 119 (SCD VG-EX 4), 124, 133, 135, 138, 144 (SCD VG-EX 4), 145 (SCD VG-EX 4), 173, 200, and 216 (SCD VG-EX 4). VG+ 3.5 (2 cards): #128 and 201. VG 3 (12 cards): #13 (SCD VG 3), 18, 21, 31, 67 (SCD VG 3), 84 Campanella RC (SCD VG 3), 90 (SCD VG 3), 107, 118 (SCD VG 3), 185 (SCD VG 3), 223, and 237. GOOD 2 (7 cards): #25, 73 (SCD GOOD 2), 110 Wynn (HOF), 116 (SCD GOOD 2), 134, 154 (SCD GOOD 2), and 167. Ungraded Keys: #1 Bickford (hand-cut, otherwise Vg+), 11 Boudreau (HOF, Fr), 23 Doerr (HOF, Gd), 29 Kiner (HOF, Gd/Vg), and 111 Schoendienst (HOF, Gd). The balance of the set ranges in grade from Vg to Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), with five lesser. An outstanding opportunity to acquire a sizable collection of cards in extremely consistent condition from this popular Bowman issue. Total: 107 cards.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,560
