1953 Bowman Baseball Cards
The 1953 Bowman Baseball Card Set was Bowman's big card response to the Topps set from the previous year. The 160 cards in the set measure 2 ½" by 3¾" are some of the most beautiful baseball cards ever produced. The 1953 Bowman baseball card fronts contain only a state-of-the-art color photograph of the player and no words and was the first post-war issue to have multi-player cards.
The 1953 Bowman high number series, ranging from card #129 to #160, were issued in smaller quantities and are more expensive.
