I got my first vintage Bowman card a few years ago and have picked up several Braves cards at shows over the past 3 or 4 years. I don't admit to liking all of the sets but I really like a few of them.
The 1950 set is comes as smaller cards than standard. I like the clean design. This is outfielder Willard Marshall on card 73.
Here is Willard again from the 1951 set. I like this better than the 1952 set. The only real difference is that the 1951 set has the name on the front and the 1952 has a facsimile signature. As you can see, these cards a little taller than the 1950 cards. This is card 98.
I bypass the, very plain, 1953 Bowman set and pick up on 1954. This card is only slightly smaller than the Topps cards of this era. I have a nice Del Crandall collection. This is card 32.
The 1955 set is ugly to me. It's the wood grain TV set. I have one card of Bill Bruton.
In my current, casual collecting state it will probably be a while before I pick up any more vintage Bowman but if any one has any to trade I'd be open.
