1949 Bowman reprint Cubs Checklist

Basic Features

Issued in 1988 by the New York-based Card Collector's Company [C.C.C.], this set contains REPRINTS of 1950 Bowman cards. Cards are of glossy stock and are noted on the reverse as "REPRINT 1986 CCC". Reputable reprint producers like Card Collectors Company clearly mark their cards with "REPRINT" on the bottom back.

The reprints provide a real alternative for those who are attracted to vintage cards but can't afford them. With the price of old vintage baseball cards skyrocketing, so too are the vast numbers of counterfeiters out there.

To prevent purchasing a false piece of history, always get a professionally graded card from a recognized provider. In the future, graded cards will be significantly more valuable.

The real 1949 set info:

Bowman Gum had evolved into the premier manufacturer of bubble gum cards during this time period.Bowman's 1949 set features a total of 240 classic cards and uses a card size of 2 1/16" x 2 1/2". The front had bright color backgrounds, which made the player stand out. The backs of these cards contain the player's name and a short biography with a right-up of their careers. There was an offer for a ring or ball included.
