1955 Bowman Complete Set (320)
Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,200
28% Ex to Ex-Mt, 60% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 12% lesser. Complete 1955 Bowman set consisting of 320 cards highlighted by many Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Kaline, and Banks. 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. The flush-to-the-border wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear, and naturally difficult to assemble as a complete set in high grade. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (Vg), 10 Rizzuto (Vg), 22 Campanella (Ex), 23 Kaline (Gd), 33 Fox (Vg-Ex), 37 Reese (Gd), 38 Wynn (Gd), 59 Ford (Gd), 103 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 130 Ashburn (Vg), 134 Feller (Ex), 158 Hodges (Vg), 168 Berra (Gd), 171 Roberts (Gd), 179 Aaron (Vg), 184 Mays (trimmed, otherwise Vg-Ex), 197 Kiner (Gd), 202 Mantle (Gd), and 242 Banks (color added, otherwise Vg-Ex). Overall a very consistent complete set requiring just a little upgrading to be an outstanding Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt set. This is the type of vintage set that to so many collectors represents the very best value. Total: 320 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,200
