1952 Bowman Baseball Cards

Bowman Mickey Mantle
Set Description

Bowman issued this 252 card set in 1952. Fronts are still a color art reproduction this time adding an autograph. The backs are numbered and have a bio on the player. The high number series, which is difficult to find, ranges from card number 217-252. Unfortunately, this set is most well known for being overshadowed by its competitor’s set, Topps.

Important Notes

High numbers are more difficult to find, especially in high grade
