Presented is a 71-card near set of 1948 Bowman basketball cards. Bowman's 1948 basketball production represented a departure for the gumcard manufacturer, as well as a gamble on an unproven sport. After the series' period of distribution, upon assessing the results of the effort and evidently disappointed by its sales, the company summarily abandoned the theme and thus unwittingly established a universally sought-after, one-year-only commemoration. Today, the world has turned, and 1948 Bowman basketball cards are cherished as early mementos of immortal Hall of Fame players, important but now-defunct teams and immeasurable nostalgic character. Includes: Graded Cards - Graded PSA NM-MT 8: 3 cards w/#'s 19, 20 and 23; PSA NM+ 7.5: 1 card, 21; PSA NM 7: 11 cards w/#'s 7, 9 Phillip, 10 Davies, 12, 17, 18, 25, 26, 27, 33 and 64; PSA EX-MT+ 6.5: 1 card, #15; PSA EX-MT 6: 2 cards w/#'s 32 Holzman and 34 Fulks; Ungraded Cards - Highlights include: #'s 1 Calverley (VG/EX), 38 Jeanette (trimmed), 43 Halbert (miscut), 46 McKinney (miscut), 48 Sadowski (miscut), 52 Simmons (miscut), 54 Palmer (miscut), 55 Zaslofsky (miscut), 58 Risen (trimmed), 66 Pollard (miscut) and 72 Braun (VG/EX). Missing #69 for completion. Grades 21% NM to NM/MT, 30% EX to EX/MT, 7% VG to VG/EX including a few trimmed, 42% miscut.
