Collection of eighteen different 1952 Bowman Large Football cards comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers, rookie cards, and short prints. All are key cards in the set that in high grade are extremely valuable. All of the cards in this collection, at first glance, present as being in Ex-Mt or better condition overall, but upon very close inspection SGC has determined that every card (except three) has been slightly trimmed. This is very subtle, and was not even noticed by our consignor, who has had the cards in his collection for many years. The collection consists of the following: #12 Trippi (HOF, SGC Auth), 14 Brown RC (HOF), 18 Justice (SP, SGC Auth), 23 Marchetti RC (HOF, SGC EX/NM 80), 27 Miller RC (SP, SGC Auth), 46 Donovan RC (HOF), 48 Halas RC (HOF), 57 Milner RC (HOF, SGC Auth), 72 Schweder RC (SP), 101 Weinmeister (HOF, SGC NM+ 86), 105 Groza (HOF, SGC Auth), 108 Johnson RC (SP), 118 Hogan (SP, SGC Auth), 127 Matson RC (HOF, SGC NM 84), 128 Lavelli (HOF, SGC Auth), 129 Christiansen RC (HOF, SGC Auth), 136 Rechichar (SP), and 144 Lansford RC (SP). While these cards will never be graded by PSA or SGC, they do represent an extraordinary value for the collector who wants beautiful original ungraded examples of these classics, at a far more affordable level than graded examples with a similar appearance. This is a very attractive collection of original 1952 Bowman Large football cards, including Hall of Famers, rookie cards, and short prints from the set. Total 18 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,645
