1953 Bowman Color PSA-Graded Collection (77) Including Mantle

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,666

Collection of seventy-seven different (out of 160 cards in set) 1953 Bowman Color cards, including key card #59 Mickey Mantle. The 1953 Bowman set has always been one of the most popular card issues of the era. All the cards are 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). PSA Condition Report: Four NM 7: #36 Minoso, 61 Kell, 64, and 74 (OC). One EX-MT+ 6.5: #66. Fifteen EX-MT 6: #2, 25, 26, 47, 55 Durocher, 56, 60, 65 Roberts, 69, 70, 80 Kiner, 84, 85, 93 Rizzuto/Martin, and 96. Three EX+ 5.5: #34, 54, and 97 Mathews. Twenty-nine EX 5: #1 D. Williams, 8, 16, 37, 38, 43, 44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle, 48, 49, 52, 57 Boudreau, 62 Kluszewski, 67, 68, 71, 72, 76, 79, 81 Slaughter, 82, 83, 86, 87, 89, 94, 99 Spahn, 102, 107, and 108. Two VG-EX+ 4.5: #9 Rizzuto and 23. Fourteen VG-EX 4: #3, 11, 15, 17, 58, 59 Mantle, 73, 75, 77, 78, 95, 100, 110, and 112. One VG+ 3.5: #12. Four VG 3: #32 Musial, 91, 98, and 105. Two GOOD 2: #45 and 63. One FAIR 1.5: #46 Campanella. One Authentic: #92 Hodges (rejected by PSA for evidence of trimming). This is a very attractive partial set of this classic 1950s gum-card issue, representing a substantial start towards the assembly of a mid- to high-grade set. The SMR value for just fifty of the graded cards (not including the one qualified card, the twenty-four cards graded less then EX 5, and one trimmed card) is $2,500. Total: 77 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,666
