    1955 Bowman Football Partial Set (46). This collection comes to us passed down from the original owner who pulled them from wax packs back in the 1950's and didn't seem to have handled them much at all. To quote another veteran hobbyist, have that "minty" feel to them. A generally unobtrusive press roller mark, overall centering or a rare wrinkle have proven to be the most common factor(s) in determining their final grade. Corners, surface and gloss quality are very consistent throughout leaving a visual feast for the eyes. Four cards have been graded by PSA. None are trimmed, some are factory cut short and won't meet the arbitrary size requirements of modern third party grading services. The collection includes: #'s 2 McCormack (PSA EX-MT 6), 7 Gifford (PSA EX-MT 6), 8 Ameche (EX/MT), 10 Pihos (EX/MT), 19, 25 Matson (VG/EX), 26, 28, 32 Van Brocklin (VG/EX), 33, 35, 36, 44 Perry (EX/MT), 52 Summerall (EX/MT), 62 Blanda (miscut), 65, 67, 73, 74 Rote (PSA NM 7), 75 McElhenny (EX/MT), 87, 91, 92 Wightkin (PSA EX-MT 6), 93, 94, 103, 104, 105, 119 Gatski (EX/MT), 120, 121, 122, 127, 129, 130, 131, 135, 136, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 147, 154 and 160 Dupre (EX). Grades 70% EX to EX/MT (some simply due to centering), 30% VG/EX or miscut.
