    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. A total of 15 cards have been graded by PSA with an aggregate SMR value of $911. Highlights of this middle grade set include: Graded Cards - SGC 84 NM 7: 5 cards w/#'s 37, 39 SP, 43, 64 and 95 McAfee; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 5 cards w/#'s 12 Conerly SP, 21 SP, 49, 58 Nussbaumer and 88; SGC 60 EX 5: 5 cards w/#'s 3 Lujack SP, 6 SP, 7 Van Buren, 61 Wojciechowicz and 82.
