    1952 Bowman Small Football Complete Set (144) - As Four Uncut Sheets (Plus Extra).
    NOTE: The four sheets are hand cut so there is some slight variation:
    Sheet with card #'s 1-36 measures 19-1/8" x 12-3/4"
    Sheet with card #'s 37-72 measures 19-1/8" x 12-3/4"
    Sheet with card #'s 73-108 measures 19-1/16" x 12-1/2"
    Sheet with card #'s 109-144 measures 19-3/16" x 12-7/16"

    The extra sheet is 18-1/2" x 12-1/2"

    Offered is a very special 144-card complete set of 1952 Bowman Small football cards. This set comes in the form of four 36-card uncut sheets! All of the stars & HoFers are here like Van Brocklin, Graham, Walker, Owen, Bednarik, Trippi, Fears, Brown, Gifford, Tittle, Justice, Connor, Marchetti, Miller, Rote, McElhenny, Baugh, Hirsch, Van Buren, Halas, Conerly, Layne, Perry, Robustelli, Pihos, Groza, Nomellini, Matson, Christiansen, Waterfield, Lary, Landry and Lansford. Each sheet shows faded hues, toning, surface wear and heavy stock undulation from exposure to moisture but no major creasing. The fifth sheet is an unfinished sheet of card #'s 37-72 with blank backs and missing the final black key line. This sheet has trimmed edges and creasing. Complete sets from the 1950's are practically unheard of. Would look great with some matting & framing.
