1948 Bowman Complete Set (48)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,680

Offered is a complete set of forty-eight cards from the 1948 Bowman series, the first baseball-card set issued by Bowman Gum, highlighted by key rookie cards of many stars and Hall of Famers. This collection was consigned by the family of the original owner and was presented to us (along with groups of 1949 and 1950 Bowman cards and 1948 Leaf cards, which appear elsewhere in the auction) housed in a vintage album, carefully held in place by corner mounts. Condition is five Ex, thirteen Vg-Ex, twenty-three Vg, and seven lesser (mostly Gd). We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Elliot RC (Vg), 2 Blackwell (Vg-Ex), 3 Kiner RC (Gd), 4 Mize (Vg+), 5 Feller (EX+ 70), 6 Berra RC (VG 40), 7 Reiser SP (Vg), 8 Rizzuto RC (Vg), 12 Sain RC (Vg-Ex), 14 Reynolds RC (Vg-Ex), 17 Slaughter (Vg+), 18 Spahn RC (Pr), 19 Henrich (Ex), 29 Page RC (Gd/Vg), 30 Lockman SP (Vg+), 36 Musial RC (EX 60), 38 Schoendienst (Vg), 40 Marion RC (Vg), 45 Sauer RC (Vg-Ex+), and 47 Thomson RC (Vg+). An outstanding opportunity to acquire a relatively affordable complete set of this landmark Bowman issue. The equivalent SMR value for just the Feller and Musial cards is $475. Total: 48 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,680
