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. The flush-to-the-border wood-grain design of this issue makes them very susceptible to corner and edge wear, and very difficult to assemble as a complete set in high grade. 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: 320 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,659
