The 1950 Bowman set is often overlooked by collectors simply because it does not include a Mantle or Mays rookie, but this was a landmark set in its day, being the first postwar baseball issue to feature full-color artwork instead of photographs. We rarely have the opportunity to offer a complete set of 1950 Bowman and over the years have consistently found it to be among the most elusive sets of the era. This is a very attractive mid-grade complete set of this classic early Bowman issue. Total: 252 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,962.50
