1950 Bowman Reprints Cubs Checklist

Basic Features

Issued in 1986 by the New York-based Card Collector's Company [C.C.C.], this set contains REPRINTS of 1950 famous Bowman cards. Cards are of glossy stock with great painted photos. 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 1950 set info:

Bowman Gum had evolved into the premier manufacturer of bubble gum cards during this time period. Bowman's 1950 set features a total of 252 classic cards, making this one of the greatest sets of all time! Bowman used a card size of 2 1/16" x 2 1/2". The backs of these cards contain the player's name and a short biography.
