Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Presented is a 48-card 1954 R701-16 Bowman "U. S. Navy Victories" complete set. In addition to the gum maker's baseball and football productions, Bowman issued a number of very attractive non-sports card series. With Cold War rhetoric fresh in their minds, the military proved to be a popular choice to appeal to a 1950s audience. All backs in this offered set are in blue ink except for seven examples (#'s 6, 8, 11, 13, 16, 40 and 47). Grades 17% NM to NM/MT, 83% EX to EX/MT (mostly EX/MT) including a couple lesser.
