Featured in this lot is a full 1951 Bowman Baseball Complete Raw Card Set. This 1951 Bowman Complete Baseball Card Set contains all 324 cards and was the most valuable set from Bowman Gum Company. The highlight of this set are the rookie cards of #253 Mickey Mantle and #305 Willie Mays, with the both cards bold in color in and centered. The Mickey Mantle card is one of the nicest raw Mickey Mantle cards that will ever be available in true auction ungraded. The card has a two minor border tears that barely are visible and each measure mere millimeters in length. This is the only thing separating the Mantle Rookie from being an EX to Near Mint example of this card. There is a minor gum stain on the reverse, but again, the card has an impeccable display and presents itself in an Excellent to Near Mint Condition. Both the Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays Rookie cards measure to the exact 2 1/16" x 3 1/8" with no evidence of trimming or alterations of any kind.

The three Hundred and Twenty Four cards in this issue were the most amount of cards that the Bowman Gum Company would ever issue in a set. By the following season, Jacob Bowman sold his company and Topps Gum Company issued their first major baseball card set. The high number series consists of cards #253 to #324. The 1951 Bowman set also features the #1 Whitey Ford Rookie Card and the #165 Ted Williams, his last true Bowman card along with Nellie Fox & Monte Irvin rookie cards. The set also features big stars such as Yogi Berra, Pee Wee Reese, Roy Campanella, Phil Rizzuto, Bob Feller and many others all with a very strong eye appeal. All cards are pictured below.
