Listing Details

One of my personal favorites, this is a set that does not seem to get any respect. Extremely colorful and attractive issue, the cards in the offered set are all in individual holders. Condition varies somewhat, but appears to our eyes to be about 40% Ex-Mt, 40% or more Ex to Ex Plus and the balance a nice VG-Ex (usually presenting better but with a small technical flaw). In short, this is an extremely clean and fine mid to better grade 1954 Bowman set. Even better, this is anchored by a graded 5s of the Ted Williams card that is almost always missing from these sets and a well centered 5 Mantle, which is very unusual. The key cards are as follows: 1 Rizzuto PSA 5, 6 N Fox PSA 5, 15 Ashburn VG-Ex, 45 Kiner PSA 4, 58 Reese Ex+, 62 Slaughter PSA 6, 64 Mathews PSA 5, 65 Mantle PSA 5 (ctd), 66.1 Williams SGC 5, 66.2 Piersall Ex, 89 Mays VG-Ex/Ex (clean w/slight nick by bottom right corner), 90 Campanella PSA 5, 101 Larsen RC VG-Ex/Ex, 132 Feller PSA 7, 138 Hodges SGC 5, 145 Martin PSA 6 mk, 161 Berra Ex Ctd, 170 Snider Ex+ and 177 Ford PSA 6. Ideal set for the grade, there are 20 PSA graded commons/minor stars w/2 7s and several 6s (but also 5s and 2s). The SMR on just the graded cards is just over $2,000, providing for some real value here (also please note the Mantle at $500 and the Williams at $900 are both VERY conservative).
