    1948 Bowman Football Partial Set (72/108). Considered the first football set of the modern era, this supremely desirable set is where the finest football card collections begin. In a strange diversion from standard practice, the Bowman football issue of this year was three times the same of its baseball brother. Another interesting fact: the '48 Bowman Football cards were printed in three sheets, with the third sheet, holding all of the cards with numbers divisible by three (i.e.: 3, 6, 9, 12, etc.) printed in much shorter supply. This set needs the SP's for completion. Highlights include - #'s 1 Tereshinski (VG/EX), 7 Van Buren (PR), 17 Trippi (EX), 22 Baugh (VG), 26 Waterfield (VG/EX), 61 Wojciechowicz (VG/EX), 80 Dudley (EX), 95 McAfee (EX), 107 Luckman (VG/EX). Grades 67% EX to EX/MT, 22% VG to VG/EX, 11% PR to GD.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
