    Description

    1953 Bowman Baseball Color High-Grade Near Set (141/160). The first set of contemporary Major League players to feature color photography, this set marks a major milestone in the history of collectible cardboard and remains one of the most popular issues of the post-war era. With the demand for high-grade singles from this set so intense, it's particularly rare to see an offering of such volume and quality. Break down value here is just tremendous. A total of thirty-one cards have been graded by PSA which add up in excess of $14,500 in SMR value, and the vast majority of the raw cards are entirely worthy of slabbing. Graded cards, PSA Mint 9: 45 Dropo. PSA NM-MT 8: twenty-two cards with 10 Ashburn, 14, 24, 27, 39, 43, 51 Irvin, 54, 70, 76, 80 Kiner, 82, 84, 93 Rizzuto/Martin, 97 Mathews, 99 Spahn, 103, 109, 118 Martin, 129, 131, 160 Abrams.
