1950 Bowman Complete Set (252) Including 214 PSA-Graded Cards!

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $5,100

Presented is an extremely attractive complete set of 1950 Bowman cards. This set is highlighted by 214 PSA-graded cards, including several of the key Hall of Famers and stars. 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 because it was the first postwar baseball issue to feature full-color artwork instead of photographs. We rarely have the opportunity to offer high-quality complete sets of 1950 Bowman and over the years have consistently found it to be among the most elusive sets of the era. PSA Grading Composite: NM 7 (9 cards): #128, 150, 160, 164, 175, 178, 181, 203 (OC), and 230. EX-MT+ 6.5 (9 cards): #45, 114, 116, 118, 183, 219 Bauer, 221, 222, and 233.
