    1953 BOWMAN FOOTBALL SET. Were it not for the imposing presence of Bowman’s 1952 Football production, this 96-card challenge world be the jewel of the hobby. As our industry blossomed in the early 1970’s it was abundantly obvious that as football cards matured, the elements of ’53 Bowman would not easily yield. Though lean on big-ticket rookies, it’s a tough set to complete – a challenge which is sharply accentuated by its 24 "single printed" numbers. Specifically, this set details: EX/MT-16% Walker, Conerly, Layne, Bednarik and Graham. EX-34% Motley, Van Brocklin, Lavelli, Hipsch, Finks, McElhenny, Fears, Tunnell (SP) and Nomellini. VG-Vg/Ex-50% LaBaron, Trippi, Creekmur, Gifford (SP), Tittle, Renfro, (SP), Pihos, Groze (SP) and #96 (SP). (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
