    1954 BOWMAN FOOTBALL SET. This complete ‘54 Bowman football set is ideal for that collector who appreciates crisp vintage cards, but has no particular pre-occupation with so-called "investment quality." To be sure, there are a few here ranging to VG/EX, but the mainstream is EX+ and stronger. As a preface to our detailing, do note that card #97 in this set is the error variety (on the reverse, "Finnin"). This one is sharp, but it has a mild crease, ergo VG. The stars itemize NM: Layne, McElhenny, Gifford and Conerly. EX/MT: Hirsch, Graham, Walker, Bednarik and Nomellini. EX/ EX+: #1 Mathews, Perry, Blanda, Tittle, Groza and Creekmur. VGVG/ EX: Atkins, Van Brocklin (tack hole) and #128 Lattner. Across its 128 cards, this set is 17% NM, 28% EX/MT, 32% EX/EX+ and 23% VGVG/ EX.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
