1950 Bowman Complete Set (252)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,400

8% Ex-Mt, 34% Ex, 38% Vg-Ex, and 20% Vg (including a few lesser). Presented is a complete 252-card set of 1950 Bowman baseball. 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 have selected six cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Parnell RC (Vg-Ex), 3 DiMaggio (Ex), 6 Feller (VG/EX 50), 8 Kell (Gd), 11 Rizzuto (Vg), 19 Spahn (VG/EX 50), 21 Reese (Vg-Ex), 22 Robinson ("Authentic," otherwise Vg-Ex), 23 Newcombe RC (Ex-Mt), 32 Roberts (Vg), 33 Kiner (Vg+), 35 Slaughter (Ex), 37 Appling (Ex), 39 Doby (Ex), 40 Lemon (Vg-Ex), 43 Doerr (Ex), 46 Berra (Gd/Vg), 58 Furillo (Vg), 59 Branca (Vg), 62 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex), 71 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex), 75 Campanella (EX 60), 77 Snider (Vg-Ex), 84 Ashburn (Vg-Ex), 94 Boudreau (Ex-Mt), 98 Williams (VG/EX 50), 112 Hodges (VG/EX+ 55), 139 Mize (Vg), 148 Wynn (Vg), 217 Stengel (Vg-Ex), 219 Bauer (Vg+), 220 Durocher (Vg-Ex+), and 229 Frisch (Vg). There is always an extremely strong demand for classic vintage sets that are impressive yet are still relatively affordable. 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. This is an extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic early Bowman issue. Total: 252 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,400
