Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>Sorry, I haven't responded to you sooner. yes, I also collected FB as a kid and most of my Bowman FB cards are in great shape.<br /> I guess when I paid my pennies for them in the Fall back then, I opened the packs, and glanced at them, and put them away.<br /> So, most of them are still in great shape.<br /><br />Some of the 1948 Bowman's are my original, but many were upgraded in the early 1980's when I was putting this set together.<br /><br />JOE<br /><br />If you don't mind, I'd like to suggest this to you.....take a long break from the hobby.....and, that will give you a lot of time to<br /> reconsider what you really want to do with your collection. I looked at all your T206's and they are a nice start on putting to-<br />gether a set. Working on this set (or others) is a great diversion from the stress of everyday life. <br /><br />TED Z

Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>A complete 1st series, uncut sheet shown in a 1984 SCD article I wrote on this set. In the early '80s, I acquired all three<br /> sheets of this set and this enabled me to explain the enigma of why 36 cards.....whose #'s are divisible by 3.....are much<br /> tougher to find than the other 72 cards in this set.<br /><br /><br />TED Z<br /><br /><img src="http://www.freephotoserver.com/v001/tedzan/bowman1948fba.jpg"><br /><br />The 2nd page of this story will be posted soon.
