    1953 Bowman Baseball Black & White Complete Set (64). Similar in all respects to the 1953 Bowman color series except for color. Purportedly, the high costs (and intense competition) involved in producing the color cards forced Bowman to issue black and white counterparts. Regardless, these mono-tone classic have lost little appeal with collectors. A total of 6 cards have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: #'s 1 Bell (GD/VG), 14 (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 15 Mize (GD, auto), 25 Sain (VG/EX), 26 Roe (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), 27 Lemon (EX), 28 Wilhelm (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), 36 Piersall (VG/EX), 39 Stengel (SGC 50 VG/EX 4), 46 Harris (VG), 51 Burdette (VG/EX) and 52 Branca (SGC 50 VG/EX 4). Grades 15% EX to EX/MT, 69% VG to VG/EX, 16% PR to GD.
