Item Description

Seller's Estimate: USD 800 - 1,200

BOWMAN 1954 BASEBALL CARDS, COMPLETE SET, 224 cards, complete as issued, including #1 P. Rizzuto, #6 N. Fox, #15 R. Ashburn, #45 R. Kiner, #58 Pee Wee Reese, #62 E. Slaughter, #64 E. Mathews, #65 M. Mantle, #66A J. Piersall, #84 L. Doby, #89 W. Mays, #90 R. Campanella, #95 R. Roberts, #101 D. Larsen, #110 R. Schoendienst, #129 H. Bauer, #132 B. Feller, #138A G. Hodges, #154 D. Newcombe, #161 Yogi Berra, #163A D. Philley, #164 E. Wynn, #170 D. Snider, #177 Whitey Ford, and #196 B. Lemon. Each housed in an individual rigid plastic sleeve.

Card number 66 was originally slated to be Ted Williams. However, due to a contract dispute with Topps, with whom Williams was signed, Bowman replaced Williams with a card featuring Jimmy Piersall. Interestingly, Piersall was also featured on card number 210, as planned before the change. The only difference between these cards appears to be the trivia question featured on the back. The result is that the unofficial #66 Ted Williams card is one of the more sought after cards of the era, while also making the #66 Jimmy Piersall somewhat more desirable than the #210 example.

From the collection of Alvin Colston Busey, Silver Spring, MD.

Additional shipping details from the seller:
We offer professional packing and shipping services. All packing is done in-house.

We pack for shipping only upon request and we work in order of request.

Once a package is ready to ship it is weighed, measured and processed through the USPS and/or UPS system in order to determine cost of shipping including insurance and additional services (e.g. delivery confirmation) as applicable.

Shipping charges include a fee for packing time and materials. Our time is billed at $15.00 per hour (prorated) and we use recycled materials whenever possible at no cost to the buyer. If purchased supplies (e.g. boxes) are used, that cost is passed on to the buyer as part of the packing fee.

The actual cost of shipping/insurance and packing/materials cannot be determined until packing is completed. Once known, the shipping charges are applied to the buyer's invoice and he/she is notified of the cost by email (or by phone if we have no email).
