Description

The forerunner to sets with vivid imagery, the 1953 Bowman Baseball Color set of (160) remains one of the most aesthetically pleasing compilations, having introduced actual color photographs depicting diamond heroes and brilliant team colors. The offered complete set has an approximate overall grading breakdown of: 5% (EX-MT or better); 10% (EX); 35% (VG-EX); and 50% (VG or lesser), with the elusive high numbers (#113-160) grading similarly. Highlights include: #9 Rizzuto (VG-EX), #10 Ashburn (VG-EX), #32 Musial (trimmed), #33 Reese (GD), #44 Bauer/Berra/Mantle (PSA 5), #46 Campanella (EX), #59 Mantle (PSA 4, mk), #92 Hodges (VG-EX), #93 Rizzuto/Martin (VG-EX), #97 Mathews (VG-EX), #99 Spahn (VG), #114 Feller (VG, signed), #117 Snider (PSA 4), #118 Martin (VG), #121 Berra (VG) and #153 Ford (VG-EX).
