1949 Bowman reprint

The 1949 Bowman reprint set fronts feature the player's name and picture. The card backs feature player statistics, a player biography, and an advertisement for Baseball Game and Bank. Although they are reprints, they are nearly identical to the originals aside from a small stamp on the bottom of the reverse side of the card which states "C.C.C. Reprint--1988."

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