About this set: The original set owner started collecting the 1955 Bowman set in graded form in 1999. That owner even had opened a few packs from Mr. Mint's famous Paris, TN find (though the results were not as grand as expected...). That owner and this collector began competing for cards in the 1999/2000 era. We initially made some trades and competed on all of the low population PSA 8s and all PSA 9's. Eventually the owner and I agreed to not compete with each other and we helped each other build amazing high-end sets. When the owner of this set sold his amazing run of cards to this collector in February 2003, it stood as the 2nd best accumulation of graded cards from this set ever. Though not complete in graded form -- high-grade raw cards filled the holes, and many of the PSA 8s, 9s and 10s are the best known examples every graded. This collector also had a good showing of the variation cards from this set. I commend the original set owner for a valiant effort on a very much under-appreciated set. All the best!
