    Description

    1953 Bowman Football High Grade Complete Set (96) With 52 SGC Graded Cards. When the first graded card you can list is a short-print HoFer you just can't start off any better than that. After taking the time to review this exceptional gallery of quality and pure nostalgic charm we can only guess someone has either a tremendous eye for pack-fresh cards or they opened up some 60-year old wax packs. Tremendous colors and gloss throughout. A total of 52 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 96 MINT 9: 2 cards, #'s 43 Gifford SP and 83 Thomason; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 2 cards, #'s 66 Smith SP and 52 Conway; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 10 cards, #'s 2, 25 Rote, 36 Fears, 51, 53 Tunnell SP, 54 SP, 59, 61, 71 and 84; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 10 cards, #'s 15 Lavelli, 16, 27, 28 Rote, 31 Hart, 49 SP, 55 SP, 56 Tittle, 81 SP and 82; SGC 84 NM 7: 13 cards, #'s 8, 12, 14, 20 Conerly, 30, 34 Creekmur, 38, 58 Sewell SP, 60, 63, 64 Coulter SP, 85, 92; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 12 cards, #'s 5, 6, 7, 10, 22 Hirsch, 24 Bednarik, 26 Graham, 29, 39 Sanford SP, 44 Continetti SP, 67 McChesney SP and 93 Marchibroda; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, #'s 50 and 76 SP; SGC 60 EX 5: 1 card, #9 Motley.
