Description

Celebrating some of baseball's most hallowed players, this 1951 Bowman mid-grade near set of (323) cards is missing only the Mantle rookie. Including all of the scarce high numbers, this set exhibits premium eye appeal. At the foremost of this impressive collection is: #1 Ed "Whitey" Ford RC (PSA 2), #2 Berra (VG), #3 Roberts (VG-EX), #6 Newcombe (PSA 4), #10 Schoendienst (NM), #32 Snider (VG), #46 Kell (VG-EX), #50 Mize (EX), #58 Slaughter (EX-MT), #134 Spahn (EX), #165 T. Williams (GD-VG), #181 Stengel (GD-VG), #232 Fox RC (VG-EX), #233 Durocher (EX), #282 Frisch (EX), #290 Bill Dickey (PSA 5) and #305 Willie Mays RC (GAI 2). An ungraded #23 Evers autographed (d.1991, "8") card is also present. The composite breakdown of this edition is 20% (EX-MT), 20% (EX), 30% (VG-EX) and 30% (VG or lesser). The scarce high number series maintains an aggregate grade of (VG-EX) with some examples better and others lesser. Despite moderate wax staining, rougher edges, infrequent creasing, and soft corners, this difficult endeavor presents extremely well.
