1951-1953 Topps and Bowman PSA-Graded Collection (37)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,304

Collection of thirty-seven Topps and Bowman cards from four different sets, dating from 1951 to 1953, highlighted by major stars such as Whitey Ford (rookie), Joe Nuxhall (rookie), and Yogi Berra. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA (all have been personally submitted to PSA over the past couple years by our consignor, now 87 years old, who collected back in the 1970s). 1) 1951 Bowman (3 cards): #1 Ford RC (VG-EX 4), 13 (VG-EX 4), and 193 (EX 5). 2) 1952 Topps (24 cards): One EX-MT 6: #288; Nine EX 5: #33 Spahn (MK, black back), 268 Lemon, 269, 277 Wynn, 287, 292, 293, 301, and 406 Nuxhall RC (high number); One VG-EX+ 4.5: #228; Nine VG-EX 4: #85, 89, 108 (MK), 129 Mize, 252, 255, 260, 276, and 285; Three VG 3: #36 Hodges (black back), 58 (black back), and 78 (black back); One GOOD 2: #307. 3) 1953 Bowman Color (1 card): #9 Rizzuto. 4) 1953 Topps (9 cards): three #54 Feller (all EX 5), 62 Irvin (VG-EX 4, signed in blue ink PSA/DNA), 85 (VG 3), 104 Berra (EX 5), 114 Rizzuto (VG-EX 4), and two 191 Kiner (EX+ 5.5 and EX 5). This is a very attractive collection of thirty-seven postwar cards issued by Topps and Bowman, spanning the years 1951 to 1953, including several key cards of the era, and most with eye-appeal far superior to that suggested by their technically accurate grades. This is a great-looking group. Total: 37 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,304
