1955 Bowman Collection (103) Including Ten Hall of Famers
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960
Presented is a collection of 103 different cards from the 1955 Bowman set, highlighted by ten Hall of Famers, including Yogi Berra and Al Kaline. 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. Condition of the offered collection is 26% Nr/Mt, 44% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 30% that present as Ex to Nr/Mt but under close examination appear to have a slight trim. Keys: #10 Rizzuto (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 23 Kaline (Nr/Mt), 33 Fox (slight trim, otherwise Nr/Mt), 38 Wynn (slight trim, otherwise Ex+), 60 Slaughter (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 89 Boudreau (Nr/Mt), 168 Berra (Ex+), 197 Kiner (slight trim, otherwise Ex+), 213 Kell (Nr/Mt+), and 303 Conlan (slight trim, otherwise Nr/Mt). This is a very attractive and relatively affordable collection of cards from this popular issue. Total: 103 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $960
