    1948 Bowman Football Near Set (107/108). Considered the first football set of the modern era, this desirable near 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. This set is missing #14. A total of 5 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: #'s 1 Tereshinski (EX), 3 Lujack SP (GD), 7 Van Buren (VG/EX), 12 Conerly SP (GD), 16 Thompson (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5), 17 Trippi (VG/EX), 22 Baugh (GD/VG), 25 McHugh (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5), 26 Waterfield (EX), 36 Turner (VG/EX), 37 (SGC 84 NM 7), 46 (SGC 84 NM 7), 58 (SGC 88 NM/MT 8), 60 Nickel SP (EX), 61 Wojciechowicz (VG/EX), 63 Pihos SP (PR), 80 Dudley (VG/EX), 95 McAfee (VG), 99 Gilmer SP (VG), 107 Luckman (VG/EX) and 108 Ray SP (PR). Grades 5% NM to NM/MT, 48% EX to EX/MT, 39% VG to VG/EX, 8% lesser.
