1951 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 1951 Bowman cards. Cards are of glossy stock. 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.

Bowman Gum, a subsidiary of Philadelphia, PA-based Haelan Laboratories, has evolved into the premier manufacturer of bubble gum cards. Bowman's 1951 set would be its largest ever (and of all time, as it turned out), featuring a total of 324 players. Bowman used a card size of 2 1/16" x 3 1/8", the same width as the year before, but longer. Most of the 324 cards featured vertically oriented player portraits, recreated as color artwork from photographs. 39 cards used a horizontal (landscape) orientation. The player's name is located in a black strip on the front of the card. The backs of these cards contain the player's name, some stats, and a short biography.
