    1953 Bowman Color Baseball Partial Set (72/160) From the Original Collector! This auction features a select number of lots that have been consigned from the same collector who pulled the cards from wax packs in the 1950's and have been resting undisturbed for the last half century and are being offered for the first time. For most of the cards, colors are vibrant and surfaces are fresh and glossy. Centering was the determining factor in the final grade. Offered is a 72-card partial set of 1953 Bowman Color baseball cards from this collection. The presentation contains cards up to #109 and is highlighted by: #'s 8 Rosen (VG/EX), 18 Fox (EX/MT), 21 Garagiola (EX), 51 Irvin (NM), 55 Durocher (EX/MT), 63 McDougald (EX, small), 65 Roberts (EX+), 68 Reynolds (EX), 78 Furillo (EX), 80 Kiner (EX, short), 81 Slaughter (EX), 84 Bauer (EX), 92 Hodges (EX), 93 Rizzuto/Martin (VG/EX), 97 Mathews (EX), 99 Spahn (EX), 101 Schoendienst (VG). A few cards were factory cut small and may not meet the arbitrary min. size requirements of third party grading services. Grades 65% EX to EX/MT with a few nicer, 35% VG to VG/EX lesser.
