    Description

    1948 Bowman Football Complete Set (108). Considered the first football set of the modern era, this supremely desirable set is where the finest football card collections begin. The '48 Bowman football cards were printed in three sheets, with the third sheet holding all of the cards with numbers divisible by three (ie: 3, 6, 9, 12, etc.) printed in much shorter supply. A significant premium for these cards is the result. Important rookies are Baugh, Conerly, Luckman, Pihos, Bulldog Turner, Van Buren and Waterfield. Highlights include - Graded - SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, #4; SGC 84 NM 7: 1 card, #31; PSA NM 7: 10 cards, w/#s 1 Tereshinski, 6, 8, 10, 13, 40, 87, 90, 96 and 104; PSA EX-MT 6: 8 cards, w/#s 5, 11, 26 Waterfield, 38, 52, 88, 92 and 93; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 2 cards, w/#s 66 and 83; BVG EX-MT 6: 1 card, #7 Van Buren; SGC 60 EX 5: 2 cards, w/#s 29 and 54; BVG EX 5: 1 card w/# 101; PSA EX 5: 1 card, w/# 39; PSA VG-EX 4: 1 card, w/# 23; BVG VG-EX 4: 2 cards w/#s 49 and 57; SGC 30 GD 2: 1 card, #61 Wojciechowic.
