1951 Bowman Baseball Complete Set

Year 1951
Manufacturer Bowman

The 1951 Bowman Complete Baseball Card Set marked the "high water" mark of the Bowman Gum Company.  By  the following season, Jacob Bowman would sell the company and a new rival - The Topps Gum Co. - would arrive on the scene.   The 1951 Bowman set also features the #1 Whitey Ford Rookie Card and #165 Ted Williams, his last true Bowman card.  This 324 card set was biggest set that the Bowman Gum Co. would ever issue.  

The highlights of the 1951 Bowman set are the true rookie cards of the two players that would dominate the game for the next two decades: #253 Mickey Mantle and #305 Willie Mays.  The high number series contains cards #253 to #324.
