1951-1975 Topps and Bowman Boston Red Sox Card Collection (654 cards)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $6,463

On the playgrounds in Boston from the 1950s to the 1970s, cards featuring Boston Red Sox players were the ultimate currency. A single Red Sox player card was a prize; a small stack was an abundance of riches. A collection of 654 was unheard of, but if it could even be imagined, would have qualified as a king's ransom. Offered is a collection of 654 different Topps and Bowman cards from 1951 to 1975, all of Red Sox players, highlighted by legends such as Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, and Jim Rice. Of the 654 cards in the collection, 261 have been graded by PSA. The collection is comprised of the following: BOWMAN: 1) 1951 (7 cards): NM-MT 8 (3): #164, 201, and 237.
