1950 Bowman BB Complete Set
Of 12-Card Uncut Sheets
From the George Moll Archives

Fall 2012 Auction
Lot Number: 377
1950 Bowman
Complete Set of Uncut Sheets

Realized Price: $13,320

This lot includes a complete 252-card 1950 Bowman baseball set on 21 uncut sheets of 12 cards each. Originally part of the archive collection of George Moll, legendary Bowman Gum Company art director and executive. Also included is the original leather bound notebook used to house the set. The name "George Moll" is written on the inside front cover of the book, along with a title page listing this set, as well as the 1951 set.

For the most part, the sheets are in outstanding condition. The majority of the cards are bright and vibrant, and display beautifully. There are a few small pin holes present (mostly on the borders of the cards), an occasional surface defect or impairment, and several of the cards have a small red ink checkmark to the right of the player's name on the reverse.

This is truly a unique item with original provenance from a very important figure in the history of trading card design and illustration.
