VERY NICE MID GRADE 1953 BOWMAN COLOR COMPLETE BASEBALL SET WITH SEVERAL PSA GRADED STARS. TOUGH TO FIND IN NICE SHAPE!Overall condition is VG+/VGEX in MY OPINION. Lots of variation from G to EXMT+/NRMT. I would estimate about 40% VG, 30% VGEX, 20% EX, 5% EXMT or better and the rest G with starts in similar shape. PSA starts grade as follows. Mantle PSA 3 (good centering, soft corners, surface wrinkles). Rizzuto/Martin PSA 4 (crisp well centered card, CLEARLY UNDERGRADED should have been a 6, light wax on back). Spahn PSA 2 again, clearly UNDE. RGRADED should have been a 4, two creases on back and light wax otherwise looks more like an EX/EX+.
Snider PSA 1.5 again, clearly UNDERGRADED, should have been a 3 or 4 easily. Small crease by bottom right. Ford PSA 3 (ridiculous grade, appears EXMT+/NRMT with one surface crease on left side). Non-graded stars grade as follows.Musial VG (no creases, rounded corners, light writing on back). Reese G/VG (sharp corners, crease top to bottom, light stain on back). Mantle/Berra/Bauer EX (sharp corners light fuzziness, minor surface stain/discoloration, NO creases). Campanella VGEX/VGEX+ (off center, NO creases, fuzzy corners, surface marks). Hodges VG+/VGEX (looks nicer, very faint surface wrinkles otherwise looks EX). Mathews VGEX (off center, fuzzy corners, NO creases). Feller VG/VG+ (rounded corners, off center, light writing on back, NO creases). Martin VG- (rounded corners, off center, surface creases on back). Berra VG/VG+ (fuzzy to lightly rounded corners, very small surface wrinkles, very light glue staining on back). Abrams VGEX (off center, surface print marks, very faint surface crease). Set is overall fairly clean and very presentable. BRIGHT COLORS throughout and backs fairly clean overall. Displayed in clean and clear NEW sheets as shown in pictures (no album). LOTS of beautifully white and crisp cards throughout. Hard to find out there in any grade, because you just don't see too many early 53 bowman color sets Priced fairly for a collector to enjoy, or break it apart, get cards graded and use it as an investment.
Perfect as a gift for friends or family. Please look at pictures carefully and ask any and all questions beforehand.
