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, being the first postwar baseball issue to feature full-color artwork instead of photographs. This is a very attractive mid-grade near complete set of this classic early Bowman issue. Total 247 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,070.00
