1950 Bowman Football Complete Set (144)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,645

70% range from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt (with a few Nr/Mt), 15% Vg, and 15% have a Nr/Mt or better appearance but with slightly irregular cuts suggesting the possibility of a slight trim; however, upon closer inspection, it is clear these approximately twenty cards have been long ago handcut from a sheet, a quality that we have seen many times in the past with early Bowmans. This is a very attractive, bright, clean complete set of this classic early 1950s Bowman football series, highlighted by rookie cards of Hall of Famers Y.A. Tittle and Otto Graham, both graded NM 84 by SGC. We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Walker (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 5 Tittle RC (SGC NM 84), 6 Groza RC (SGC Auth, slight trim, otherwise Nr/Mt-Mt), 16 Davis RC (Ex), 17 Waterfield (slight trim, otherwise Ex), 23 Van Buren (Pr), 26 Lujack (Gd), 27 Luckman (trimmed, otherwise Vg), 35 Perry RC (Vg-Ex), 37 Layne (SGC EX/NM 80), 43 Motley RC (70/30 L/R, otherwise Nr/Mt), 45 Graham RC (SGC NM 84), 51 Fears RC (SGC EX/NM 80), 52 Hirsch RC (Vg-Ex), 78 Lavelli RC (Ex-Mt), 100 Baugh (SGC Auth, slight trim, otherwise Ex), 103 Conerly (Vg/Vg-Ex), and 132 Bednarik (SGC EX 60). Sharp-looking complete set from the early 1950s, loaded with all of the great stars and Hall of Famers of the era. Extremely attractive complete mid-grade sets such as this one represent a particularly outstanding value. Total 144 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,645
