Bowman Baseball & Football Card Collection from 1951 & 52. Stengel, Slaughter, Boudreau & More! 30+ Cards!

31 sports cards, circa 1951-52, each measuring approximately 2" x 3.125", produced by Bowman. Included in the lot are 1951 baseball cards from Casey Stengel, Ted Kluszewski, Larry Doby, Al Lopez, Erv Palica, Carl Furillo, Dick Starr, Ken Wood, Leo Durocher, Al Widmar, Mike Garcia, Bill Rigney, Charlie Dressen, Ellis Kinder, Sal Maglie, Lou Boudreau, Wally Moses, Allie Reynolds, Del Crandell, Emory "Bubba" Church, Billy Southworth, Cal Abrams, Bucky Harris, & Preacher Roe. Also included is 1952 Bowman cards from Robin Roberts, Bobby Brown, Enos Slaughter, and Joe Haynes. As a bonus, three Bowman football cards from Glenn Davis, Otto Graham and Sammy Baugh are included. The cards show expected wear, paper loss, rough edges and centering issues. Some are possibly trimmed or altered. 

Every set is known for something, and the 1951 Bowman set is no different. In particular, the Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle rookie cards are what collectors think of, although there are a few more Hall of Fame rookie cards in the set. Whitey Ford, Monte Irvin and Nellie Fox all made their cardboard debuts, but theirs are greatly overshadowed by the two legends of the set.
