Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>For some reason I never ended up with a lot of these,<br />as compared to my other post-war major sets. Here are<br /> a few of some of the ones I do have:<br />Snider, Mize, Boudreau,<br />Dom DiMag, Berra<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Snider.jpg"> <img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Mize.jpg"> <img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Boudreau.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Dom_DiMaggio.jpg"> <img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Berra.jpg"><br /><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Pennsylvania Ted</b><p>Does anyone else collect the last series (#181-252) of 72 cards with and without the Bowman trademark ?<br />These 1950 Bowman variations are quite a challenging sub-set to collect and are fun to hunt for.<br /><br />TED Z

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Ted -- Leo the Lip is the only one I have w/o the trademark.<br />By chance, actually, since at the time I was<br />collecting them I wasn't aware that some cards did not have it.<br /><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Bowman_50_Durocher.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>PAUL S<br /><br />I have all 72 cards with, and without the Bowman trademark. It was not easy to find them. And, for some unexplainable<br />reason the 36 cards in the #181-216 group are tougher than the higher # group....without the trademark.<br /><br />When I collected these as a kid, they all had the trademark. Some years back I acquired a complete set in Cooperstown<br /> and about 60 cards had no trademark.<br /><br />TED Z

Posted By: <b>sagard</b><p>I love this set. Here it is:<br /><br /><a href="http://209.180.22.162/1950bowman/1950.html" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://209.180.22.162/1950bowman/1950.html</a><br /><br />I actually prefer it to the '51 Bowman set because I didn't have to fork out the cash for Mantle. Doing one set per decade for now this seemed like a perfect fit for me.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Way to go, Sagard! (Looks like we have another "raw and<br />naked" collector in our midst...&lt;- "midst", strange word<br />there, maybe I'm turning into Bruce!) Did you collect<br />the whole set ungraded or break some out of holders?<br />

Posted By: <b>sagard</b><p>Thanks for the comments. I bought the set as is. Occasionally I think about grading some of the cards, but then I'd want to start selling them and currently I'm happy to own them. The Doby (top right fourth sheet) is my favorite and Dodgers with Newcombe/Reese/Robinson (sheet 2) are pretty cool too. <br /><br />The set is somewhat affordable - less popular to the masses due to missing Mays, Mantle, and Dimaggio. I'm collecting those guys in other sets and this set really is just what I was looking for from the '50s.<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Jason L</b><p>acquiring the Campy, Berra, Jackson and Doby someday...those are my faves from this issue...I agree, the Doby (along with same image in the '51) is one of the nicest card images of the 1950s!

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>All great looking cards. I always liked the Spahn (same post in '51), with that big ol' leg kick bearing down on the batter.
