Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,000
5% Nr/Mt, 13% Ex-Mt, 70% Vg-Ex to Ex, and 12% Vg (includes a couple lesser). This is a beautifully assembled, overall midgrade complete set of 1953 Bowman Color, highlighted by a superb example of the key card, Mickey Mantle, graded PSA EX-MT 6. All cards within this set present with bright colors and crisp images. We have selected six cards to be graded by PSA and nine were already graded by PSA when consigned to us. Keys: #1 Williams (Ex), 9 Rizzuto (VG-EX 4), 10 Ashburn (Ex), 18 Fox (NM 7), 32 Musial (VG-EX 4), 33 Reese (EX 5), 40 Doby (Ex+), 44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle (VG-EX 4), 46 Campanella (EX 5), 51 Irvin (Vg), 55 Durocher (Ex), 57 Boudreau (Ex), 59 Mantle (EX-MT 6), 61 Kell (Vg-Ex), 62 Kluszewski (Ex), 65 Roberts (Ex), 80 Kiner (EX 5), 81 Slaughter (Ex), 92 Hodges (Ex), 93 Rizzuto/Martin (VG-EX+ 4.5), 97 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 99 Spahn (Ex), 101 Schoendienst (Ex), 114 Feller (Vg-Ex+), 117 Snider (VG-EX+ 4.5), 118 Martin (Ex), 121 Berra (Ex), 143 Lopez (Ex), 146 Wynn (EX-MT+ 6.5), 153 Ford (Vg-Ex), and 160 Abrams (Vg+). Other Graded Cards: #48 Sauer (NM 7), 50 Kretlow (EX-MT+ 6.5), 124 Dressen (NM 7), and 149 Corwin (NM-MT 8 [OC]). Vintage sets in midgrade are always extremely desirable, in part because of the tremendous collecting value they represent. The cards are classic, they look great, but they do not cost a fortune compared to higher-grade cards. This is an extremely attractive complete set of this very popular Bowman issue. The SMR value for just nine of the fifteen graded cards (excluding the six cards graded with qualifiers or less than EX, and not including the additional 145 ungraded cards!) is $2,065. Total: 160 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $6,000
