1951 Bowman complete baseball card set. Set averages VGEX condition and contains 324 cards.
One of the most important and Iconic sets ever made! Contains the true ROOKIE cards of Mantle Mays and Ford.
This was Bowman's largest offering as a complete set of cards. The Pinnacle of the 1951 Bowman Set are the rookie cards of #253 Mickey Mantle and #305 Willie Mays. Two of the best home run hitters of their generation.The high number series consists of cards #253 to #324. The 1951 Bowman set also features the #1 Whitey Ford Rookie Card and will only go up in value due to the Mantle & Mays rookies.
The Mantle is Graded at BVG1, MaysPSA3(MK) & Ford at a PSA2. And these three cards make up the majority of the value of the set.All of the graded cards have great eye appeal as you will see from the pics. The worst of the bunch is the Mantle which looks like it was in some kids scrap book. The back has paper loss and is pretty banged up but luckily the front looks pretty good considering its a 1.
The Mays has a small pen marking of a date on its back or it would have graded higher. The gloss on the Mays is exquisite, it looks great. The real strength of the set comes with the other cards. Set is a MIXGRADE with the majority of the cards falling into a range of VGEX - EX+.
There are some real beauties with many of the stars falling into the EX to EX+. There are some that would even grade higher in my opinion and some lesser.
The set was well cared for and you can tell from the condition of the cards. Since in my possession, I have stored the cards in the box you see in the pics and in a smoke free environment. The cards are in card saver 2 sleeves and this is how you will receive the set. None are abused or show signs of heavy wear.Own an awesome piece of history and add a set that is essential to any serious collector. My set was pieced together over several years with great care taken for adding quality cards. The color and gloss on many of the cards are stunning for a 68 year old set! You will see from the pics as they are a great representation of the overall condition of the set. There are some cards that fall below VG but it is not many.
Reach out with any questions or if you would like to see specific cards. You will receive the exact cards pictured and I will package with care. I need to pay off debt quick and my loss is your gain.
