1951 Bowman Complete Set (324) Including Mantle and Mays Rookies

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,900

29% Vg-Ex to Ex (including some Ex-Mt), 30% Vg, and 41% lesser. This classic 324-card set includes many Hall of Famers and stars, highlighted by the rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. We have selected two cards be professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Ford RC (Pr), 2 Berra (Gd-Vg), 3 Roberts (Pr), 7 Hodges (Vg), 26 Rizzuto (Pr), 30 Feller (Gd), 31 Campanella (Vg), 32 Snider (Pr), 46 Kell (Ex), 50 Mize (Vg), 53 Lemon (Gd), 58 Slaughter (Gd+), 78 Wynn (Pr), 80 Reese (Vg-Ex+), 134 Spahn (Vg), 151 Doby (Ex), 165 Williams (Pr), 181 Stengel (Pr), 186 Ashburn (Gd/Vg), 198 Irvin RC (Fr), 232 Fox RC (miscut, otherwise Ex), 233 Durocher (Pr), 253 Mantle RC (POOR 10), and 305 Mays RC (FAIR 20). While this entire set is overall in relatively modest condition, one of the great things about card collecting is that the most classic card sets can be collected in any condition, on any budget. This is a very consistent set which offers a potentially outstanding collecting value (especially as included are highly sought-after examples of #253 Mickey Mantle and #305 Willie Mays), and represents a rarely offered, far more affordable alternative to a higher-grade set of this classic early 1950s Bowman issue. Total: 324 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,900
