Description

It was the end of an era for the Bowman Gum Company with their 1955 sports releases. Hallmarked by condition-sensitive wood borders, a presentable grouping is quite the challenge to locate. Meeting all of the requirements for technical presentation, offered is a 1955 Bowman Baseball near set of (241) cards, including Mickey Mantle and a wrapper. Highlighted keys include #59 Ford (EX), #134 Feller (EX/EX-MT), #171 Roberts (EX), #202 Mantle (trimmed), #265 Barlick (EX/EX-MT), #267 Honochick (VG-EX), #283 Chylak (EX/EX-MT), #303 Conlan (EX), #313 Donatelli (EX), #315 Hubbard (VG-EX) and #320 Susce (VG-EX). The composite condition of this collection is 10% (NM or better), 25% (EX-MT), 30% (EX), 20% (VG-EX) and 15% (VG or lesser). The #202 Mantle is slightly trimmed but is crease-free and presents well. Also included is a 1955 Bowman Wrapper in (VG-EX) condition with minimal staining and wear consistent with the grade.
