Collection of thirty-two cards of Hall of Famers issued by Topps, Bowman, and Leaf, spanning the years 1948 to 1969, highlighted by major stars such as Mantle, Williams, Robinson (rookie card), Mays (rookie card), Clemente, Paige, and many more. These cards were saved by an old-time collector as a sample representation of great stars from these sets. We have selected seven cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. The collection consists of the following: 1) 1948 Bowman (3 cards): #5 Feller (SGC EX/NM 80), 6 Berra RC (SGC NM 84), and 36 Musial RC (Vg-Ex). 2) 1949 Bowman: #224 Paige (SGC GOOD 30). 3) 1949 Leaf (2 cards): #70 Wagner (SGC EX+ 70) and 79 Robinson RC (Pr). 4) 1951 Bowman (2 cards): #2 Berra (Gd) and 305 Mays RC (SGC VG/EX 50). 5) 1951 Topps Connie Mack All Stars: Speaker (Vg). 6) 1952 Berk Ross: Mantle (SGC VG 40). 7) 1952 Bowman: #218 Mays (Vg). 8) 1952 Topps: #37 Snider (Ex). 9) 1953 Bowman Color (3 cards): two #32 Musial (both Vg) and 59 Mantle (SGC GOOD 30). 10) 1953 Topps: #1 Robinson (Vg). 11) 1954 Topps (5 cards): three #1 Williams (Vg and two Gd) and two 94 Banks RC (both Vg). 12) 1955 Topps: #4 Kaline (Vg). 13) 1956 Topps: #33 Clemente (Ex). 14) 1961 Topps (2 cards): #300 Mantle (Vg) and 578 Mantle AS (Vg). 15) 1962 Post: Mantle (Ex). 16) 1962 Topps: #318 Mantle IA (Vg). 17) 1966 Topps (3 cards): #1 Mays (Vg), 50 Mantle (Ex-Mt), and 300 Clemente (Ex). 18) 1969 Topps (2 cards): #260 Jackson RC (Vg-Ex) and 500 Mantle (Ex). This is a very attractive collection of thirty-two Hall of Famer cards, all classics, spanning the years 1948 to 1969, including several key cards of the era, and most with eye-appeal far superior to that suggested by their technically accurate grades. Every card is a highlight! Total: 32 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,036
