65% range from Ex to Ex-Mt, 35% range from Vg to Vg-Ex (includes a few slightly lesser). Complete set of 320 cards highlighted by many Hall of Famers, including Mantle, Aaron, Mays, Kaline, and Banks, as well as one of the six variation cards (#101), for a total of 321 cards. The 1955 Bowman cards (Bowman's final baseball-card issue) have always been very popular due to their classic television design.

Two additional cards graded by PSA: #20 and 35 (both PSA EX-MT 6). This is a relatively affordable yet still extremely attractive mid-grade complete set of Bowman's final baseball-card issue. Total: 321 cards (set of 320 cards plus one variation). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,778
