1955 Bowman Complete Set (320)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,040

54% Ex to Ex-Mt and 46% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few lesser). Complete set 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. Two cards are graded by PSA. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (Vg-Ex), 10 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 22 Campanella (Ex), 23 Kaline (Vg), 33 Fox (Ex), 37 Reese (Vg-Ex), 59 Ford (Vg-Ex), 68 Howard RC (Vg-Ex), 103 Mathews (Ex-Mt), 134 Feller (Ex-Mt), 168 Berra (Vg), 179 Aaron (Ex), 184 Mays (Vg), 202 Mantle (EX+ 5.5), 242 Banks (Vg), 265 Barlick (Ex), and 306 Cerv (EX 5). Overall a very attractive and consistent complete set of this classic mid-1950s issue. This is the type of beautiful vintage set that to so many collectors represents the very best value. Total: 320 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,040
