1952 was the Braves last season in Boston before moving to Milwaukee.
I got 4 of these cards at the last show but already forgot which one. (Brain getting old.)
Once again the pictures are pretty much actual size.
12 Max Surkont - Max won 12 games as a starter in both 1951 and 1952.
72 Earl Torgeson - After the duplicate artwork of 1950 and 1951 Bowman finally gave us a new look for Earl.
97 Willard Marshall - Was sent to the Reds during the 1952 season. "Reds" is written in ink on the top right corner of the card back.
100 Sibby Sisti - Spent his entire 13 year career with the Braves. He led the league in errors as a third baseman with 41 in 1941.
132 Dave Cole - Dave had a six year career as a reliever and spot starter, four of which he spent with the Braves.
192 John Cusick - Also known as Jack. Hit .174 in his two year major league career. I do remember that this is one of the cards I got at the last show. From what I can tell this was his only mainstream baseball cards.
208 Walker Cooper - After two years over .300 is batting average dipped to .235 in 1952.
215 Sheldon Jones - Had a record of one win and four losses in his only year as a Brave in 1952.
When actually holding a card all of the text appears to be black. Because of the baseball cap offer at the bottom there is less room for the biographical information than there was on the 1951 cards.
