Default 1951 Bowman Group Break (8 days left)

1951 Bowman Set Break (324 spots available)
(paid ad)

I am breaking up my complete 1951 Bowman set, featuring the popular rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. I have recently finished upgrading the set to replace the cards in poor or fair condition. The average condition of the set is now a solid VG+ (3.39 “GPA”), and none of the cards have any holes, tears, heavy creases, or writing on either the front or back. Condition issues may include wax stains on the back, corner wear, light edge chipping, surface wrinkles, or light creases. Slots are available in three pricing tiers, depending on how many you want to purchase.

1 card: $35
3 cards: $100
10 cards: $300

Out of the 324 total cards, there are:
30 Hall of Famers
22 Rookie cards (including 5 HOFers)
72 High numbers
16 Graded cards
248 cards in VG or better condition

Key cards in the set include:
1) #253 Mickey Mantle (R) – SGC 1.5
2) #305 Willie Mays (R) – PSA 2.5
3) #1 Whitey Ford (R) – BVG 3
4) #165 Ted Williams – PSA 3
5) #2 Yogi Berra – PSA 2.5
6) #31 Roy Campanella – PSA 3.5
7) #80 Pee Wee Reese – PSA 5
8) #134 Warren Spahn – PSA 5
9) #198 Monte Irvin - Excellent (raw)
10) #232 Nellie Fox (R) – SGC 3
11) #32 Duke Snider – PSA 3

Most cards are in either VG or VG-Ex condition. The total value of this set if broken up for auction is $8000+, and the 11 key cards listed above account for approximately three-fourths of the total.

Mantle is both the most valuable and the lowest condition card in the set, with a technical grade of 1.5 due to the centering, but it has a strong image and the card is otherwise in VG condition. I believe every one of the remaining 323 cards in the set would grade at least a 2. That isn’t to be taken as any sort of guarantee, but it is my assessment as a conservative grader.

I accept PayPal but am open to other forms of payment as well if, for example, you would prefer to write a check. (You can both contact me with questions and remit PayPal to gscheyd@hotmail.com.)

Lots of 1-3 raw commons will ship in a plain envelope protected by a Card Saver II. Mantle and Mays will be sent Priority Mail with insurance coverage and signature confirmation. All others will be sent by bubble mailer (or upgraded to a box if necessary to accommodate volume). For cards other than Mays and Mantle, USPS insurance may be purchased through me at cost by request of the buyer.

If all 324 entries have been sold, the drawing will be held on July 22nd and hosted on www.random.org. In the event that not all entries have been sold prior to the projected drawing date, the drawing may be postponed until August (date TBD but no later than 3 days after the final entry has been sold). In the event that August ends before all entries have been sold, all entry payments will be refunded and the drawing cancelled.

You can email or message me to reserve spots or can claim them by replying to the thread. I will send you a confirmation when payment has cleared. I will update the top of this post with a tally of the number of available spots remaining. (I'm having a little trouble getting the photos down to the size limit, but I'll post what I can here, and you can email me for the large hi-res versions of the smaller photos below.) Now let's have some fun!

Default Set break update

33 days left. Time for a bump. I'm still having trouble with the new photos from my scanner and camera, but here are the scans of various sizes I already had on my computer. And I'm happy to answer questions (and/or email images) for any card in the set. You can always reach me at gscheyd at hotmail dot com.

That is a beautiful rookie Mantle with nice color. Good luck with your break.

Mantle rookie card prices are up this summer. Here are the last 5 sales of Mantle rookies in worse condition than the one I'm including in the break.

BVG 2 (miscut): $3750 (eBay 6/2)
PSA 1: $3256 (eBay 6/5)
PSA A (torn in two and glued back together?): $2700 (eBay 6/11)
PSA 1: $2999 (eBay 6/26)
PSA 1 (scuffing, creases, paper loss, off-center): $2714 (Saco River last night)

If you buy 10 spots in the group break (for $300), you have a 3.1% chance of winning the Mantle rookie. Also a 3.1% chance of winning the Mays rookie. Same for the Ford and the Williams.

Yes, there are still spots remaining. I'd like to sell out by next Monday, so that leaves 8 days.

Bonus:
Send your payment in before 7/22 and you can qualify for a bonus lot of '51 Bowman cards ($100 value). After the initial set break drawing, one number 1-324 will be drawn at random, and whoever won that card in the initial break will also win the lot of bonus cards. Cards will range from poor to vg-ex and will include low and high numbers, commons and Hall of Famers, but I guarantee a minimum (auction) value of $100.
