Current Finest Possible Set Rating: 10.320

Artistically, this set represented a bold leap forward for Bowman, with each and every card a work of art. As if to commemorate the improvement, Bowman included (finally) Ted Williams in this series (naturally, this card is the cornerstone of the set). Other high-demand cards in the set include Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra, and Duke Snider. To read an in-depth article, click here.
