Description

Presented is a 1951 Bowman baseball starter set of (288/324) cards. Undoubtedly the most revered of all the releases from this Philadelphia confectioner, these mostly off-grade cards tout some of the most hallowed figures in baseball history. The lower series has an average grade of (GD-VG), while the more difficult high numbers are more presentable at (VG). Highlights include #1 Ford (FR), #2 Berra (GD), #3 Roberts (VG), #10 Schoendienst (VG), #30 Feller (VG), #31 Campanella (GD-VG), #46 Kell (VG), #58 Slaughter (FR), #80 Reese (GD-VG), #134 Spahn (VG), #143 Kluszewski (VG), #165 T. Williams (VG), #181 Stengel (VG), #219 Woodling (VG-EX), #232 N. Fox (VG), #254 Jensen (VG-EX), #260 Erskine (VG-EX), #282 Frisch (VG/VG-EX), #290 Dickey (GD-VG), #295 Lopez (VG) and #306 Piersall (VG-EX). This group is detracted by wear associated with the grades, including moderate wax staining, creases, centering issues and two instances of scrapbook removal (#198 Irvin and #233 Durocher). With only thirty-six cards missing from this classic series, this set is well on its way toward completion. For a complete list of cards from this famed set, please visit our website.
