I got all of my 1950 Bowman for $3 a piece at the monthly card show I went to a couple of weekends ago. I usually attend this show about 6 times a year depending on how it falls with my pay schedule. I dealt with the dealers I normally deal with that had some 1976 Topps that I needed to get toward set completion and then spotted this box that had 1949 - 1954 Bowman and even some 1952 Topps for $3 a piece. I only had $30 to spend so I got 6 1950 and 4 1952 Bowman I needed for my collection.
The pictures are larger than the actual cards.
73 Willard Marshall - Received in a trade with the Giants after the 1949 season.
110 Tommy Holmes - The 1945 NL Batting Champion. This card has an X drawn in blue pen on the back.
111 Walker Cooper - The netting in the background looks like someone drew on it in pen but it is part of the picture.
163 Earl Torgeson - Was injured most of the 1949 season.
The back of the 1950 Bowman is landscape with biographical information including some basic stats. Born in Snohomish. Awesome!
164 Sibby Sisti - One of the best baseball names ever.
192 Bob Chipman - Received in trade from the Cubs before the 1950 season.
I'm hoping that this vendor is at one of the future shows as I will make sure I have a pocketful of cash. These cards were a great bargain.
