1951 Bowman Near-Complete Set (314 of 324)

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $3,525.00

10% Ex, 80% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, 10% Gd. The classic 1951 Bowman set includes all the Hall of Famers and stars of the day, and is highlighted by the rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays (very pleasing mid-grade examples, both of which have been graded and encapsulated by PSA). This near-set is missing just ten common cards for completion: #11, 12, 13, 18, 38, 43, 55, 63, 110, and 314. Keys: #1 Ford RC (Gd-Vg), 2 Berra (Vg-Ex), 3 Roberts (Vg-Ex), 7 Hodges (Ex), 10 Schoendienst (Vg-Ex/Ex), 26 Rizzuto (PSA EX-MT 6), 30 Feller (Ex), 31 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 32 Snider (Ex), 46 Kell (Ex), 50 Mize (Vg-Ex), 53 Lemon (Ex), 58 Slaughter (Vg-Ex), 62 Boudreau (Ex), 78 Wynn (Gd), 80 Reese (70/30 L/R, otherwise Ex), 134 Spahn (75/25 L/R, otherwise Ex), 143 Kluszewski (Vg-Ex), 151 Doby (Vg-Ex/Ex), 165 Williams (PSA VG-EX 4), 181 Stengel (trimmed), 186 Ashburn (blue ink on front, otherwise Vg-Ex), 198 Irvin RC (Ex), 218 Lopat (Vg-Ex), 219 Woodling RC (Vg), 232 Fox RC (Vg-Ex), 233 Durocher (Vg/Vg-Ex), 253 Mantle RC (PSA VG 3), 254 Jensen RC (Vg-Ex), 260 Erskine RC (Ex), 290 Dickey (Vg-Ex), 291 Henrich (Vg), 295 Lopez (Vg-Ex), 305 Mays RC (PSA GOOD 2), 306 Piersall RC (Vg-Ex), 323 Adcock RC (Vg-Ex), 324 Pramesa RC (Vg-Ex). This is a very consistent set of this classic early 1950s Bowman issue, missing just ten easily found common cards for completion. The Mantle and Mays rookie cards alone represent a very significant concentration of value in this set. Total 314 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500+. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
