1948 Bowman "Movie Stars" Complete Set PSA-Graded (36) - #1 PSA Registry!

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $5,875.00

Extraordinary ultra high-grade complete set of 1948 Bowman "Movie Stars." This is a rare and interesting set, with card fronts designed very much like 1948 Bowman baseball, and backs very much like 1949 Bowman baseball. Included are all the top movie stars of the day such as Eve Arden, Sonja Henie, Cesar Romero, Shelley Winters, William Demarest, and Yvonne De Carlo. The entire set of thirty-six cards has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. This is the Number One All-Time Finest set on the PSA registry. The set includes five PSA 9s, twenty PSA 8s, and eleven PSA 7s, with an overall GPA grade average of 7.78. The complete PSA condition composite follows: Five MINT 9: #2 (OC), 4, 17, 25, and 34. Twenty NM-MT 8: #3, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, and 35. Eleven NM 7: #1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 27, 30, and 36. It is our experience that a vintage set such as this, in such extraordinary high grade, let alone the highest-graded set ever assembled, may be valued by the market at a significant premium to guide prices. Accompanying the set is an original window display poster (20 x 5 inches), an extraordinary rarity in its own right (one of only two or three in existence), advertising for this 1948 Bowman "Movie Stars" Series. The poster has an Excellent appearance, with a separation along one of the natural fold lines that has been reinforced with tape on the reverse. Total 36 cards plus one poster. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $5,875.00
