1954 Bowman Near-Complete Set (222/224)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

39% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few higher), 56% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 5% lesser. This is a very attractive medium-grade near-complete set of one of the most overlooked (and compared to many other sets, most reasonably valued) classic bubble-gum card issues from the golden age of the 1950s. Missing only #25 and 138 Hodges for completion (no #66 Williams). Keys: #1 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 6 Fox (Ex), 15 Ashburn (Vg), 45 Kiner (Vg-Ex), 58 Reese (Vg-Ex), 64 Mathews (Ex), 65 Mantle (Gd), 66 Piersall (Ex), 84 Doby (Gd), 89 Mays (Vg), 90 Campanella (Ex), 95 Roberts (Vg), 132 Feller (Vg), 145 Martin (Gd), 161 Berra (Vg), 164 Wynn (Gd), 170 Snider (Vg), 177 Ford (Vg), and 196 Lemon (Gd). Affordable, attractive mid-grade sets (or near sets) of classic issues from the 1950s such as this are not easy to find and understandably always generate tremendous collector interest. Total: 222 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,320
