1954 Bowman Baseball Cards
The 1954 Bowman Baseball Card Set includes 224 cards that measure 2 ½" by 3¾". Rushed to press, 40 of the cards in the set have minor variations, most of which are contained in the statistics. With no rookie cards of future Hall-of-Famers, the 1954 Bowman set is very affordable.
The key cards in the 1954 Bowman baseball card set are #65 Mickey Mantle and the short-printed #66 Ted Williams. Williams had signed an exclusive contract with Topps, forcing his card to be pulled from the print sheet. It was replaced with Jimmy Piersall, which is identical to his #210 card.
