1955 Bowman Complete Master Set (326)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,800

20% Ex-Mt, 58% Ex, 11% Vg-Ex, and 11% lesser (mostly Gd/Vg). Complete master set of 326 cards (320 in a complete set plus six variations) highlighted by many Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Kaline, and Banks. Consigned from an old-time collection! We have selected three cards from this set to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (Vg-Ex), 10 Rizzuto (Ex), 22 Campanella (Fr), 23 Kaline (Ex), 33 Fox (Ex-Mt), 37 Reese (Ex), 59 Ford (Vg), 60 Slaughter (Ex), 68 Howard RC (Ex+), 103 Mathews (EX+ 70), 130 Ashburn (Ex+), 134 Feller (Ex+), 158 Hodges (Vg-Ex+), 168 Berra (Ex+), 171 Roberts (Ex-Mt), 179 Aaron (Gd), 184 Mays (VG/EX+ 55), 197 Kiner (Ex-Mt), 202 Mantle (EX+ 70), and 242 Banks (Vg-Ex). 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. 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: 326 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,800
