65% Ex (includes a few slightly better), 35% range from Vg to Vg-Ex (includes a very few with very slight possible trim or factory miscut). Near-complete set of 319 1955 Bowman cards plus five variation cards (#48, 132, 157, 195, and 204), for a total of 324 cards. Missing only #283 Chylak and one variation (#101) for a complete master set. The 1955 Bowman cards (Bowman's final baseball-card issue) have always been very popular due to their classic television design and inclusion of so many stars, such as Mantle, Aaron, Mays, and Banks. We have selected three cards to be graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Wilhelm (Vg), 10 Rizzuto (Vg-Ex), 22 Campanella (Vg-Ex), 23 Kaline (Vg), 33 Fox (Vg-Ex), 37 Reese (Ex), 38 Wynn (Ex), 59 Ford (Vg), 60 Slaughter (Ex), 65 Zimmer RC (Vg), 68 Howard RC (Vg-Ex), 103 Mathews (Vg), 130 Ashburn (Vg), 134 Feller (Ex), 158 Hodges (Ex), 168 Berra (slight trim), 171 Roberts (Ex), 179 Aaron (SGC VG/EX 50), 184 Mays (SGC EX 60), 191 Lemon (Ex), 197 Kiner (Ex), 202 Mantle (SGC Authentic, slight trim), and 242 Banks (Vg-Ex). This is a relatively affordable yet still extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of Bowman's final baseball-card issue. Total: 324 cards (near-set of 319 cards plus five variations). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,659
