Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,528

10% Nr/Mt, 55% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, 35% Vg to Vg-Ex. Complete set of 320 cards highlighted by many Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Kaline, and Banks, as well as three of the six variation cards (#48, 101, 157) for a total 323 cards. We have selected four cards from this set to be graded by SGC. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (miscut on back, otherwise Vg), 10 Rizzuto (VG/EX 50), 22 Campanella (miscut on the back, otherwise Ex), 23 Kaline (miscut on back, otherwise Vg), 33 Fox (Ex), 37 Reese (Vg), 38 Wynn (Vg-Ex), 59 Ford (trimmed, o/w Fr), 60 Slaughter (Ex), 65 Zimmer RC (Ex), 68 Howard RC (Vg-Ex/Ex), 103 Mathews (Vg-Ex), 130 Ashburn (Vg-Ex), 134 Feller (Ex-Mt), 158 Hodges (Vg), 168 Berra (Vg), 169 Furillo (Ex-Mt), 171 Roberts (Ex), 179 Aaron (Vg), 184 Mays (EX 60), 191 Lemon (possible slight trim, otherwise Ex), 197 Kiner (Ex), 202 Mantle (GOOD 30), and 242 Banks (VG/EX 50). The 1955 Bowman cards (Bowman's final baseball-card issue) have always been very popular due to their classic television-style and inclusion of so many stars. Overall a very sharp looking complete set, with only a few problem cards. This is the type of vintage set that to so many collectors represents the very best value. Total 323 cards (set of 320 cards plus 3 variations). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,528
