Description

Early stars of the early National Basketball Association are found on this pioneering 1948 Bowman Basketball near set of (71/72) cards, (6) of which are graded by SGC. This pint-sized, but colorful series has an approximate condition breakdown of 15% (NM or better), 40% (EX-MT), 30% (EX) and 15% (VG-EX or lesser) with four instances of trimming among the mostly sharp high numbers. Additionally, two of the high numbers are accentuated by “gray” tint variations. Highlights include #1 Calverley RC (SGC 50), #9 Phillip RC (NM), #21 Levance RC (SGC 84), #32 Holzman RC (VG), #43 Halbert RC (NM), #48 Sadowski (EX-MT, gray variation), #55 Zaslofsky RC (SGC 80), #66 Pollard RC (SGC 80) and #72 Braun RC (VG). Missing only #69 Mikan rookie for completion. More on our website.

Due to rudimentary factory printing techniques of the age, moderate centering/size variances are present;

#1 Calverley RC (SGC 50), #9 Phillip RC (NM), #10 Davies RC (EX-MT), #21 Levance RC (SGC 84), #32 Holzman RC (VG), #34 Fulks RC (EX), #38 Jeanette RC CO (EX), #43 Halbert RC (NM), #46 McKinney RC (EX-MT), #48 Sadowski (EX-MT, gray variation), #52 C. Simmons RC (EX-MT), #54 B. Palmer RC (EX-MT), #55 Zaslofsky RC (SGC 80), #56 Robbins (SGC Authentic, blue variation), #58 Risen RC (SGC Authentic), #66 Pollard RC (SGC 80), #72 Braun RC (VG)
