Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the 1950 Bowman set, so will start off w/ a couple of pages from my set.<br /><br />It is the first FB set I ever collected, following on the heels of my '50 Bowman baseball. As far as I can remember, all cards were available most of the Fall that year and because I had no holes in the set to finish years later I assume they were all available in equal numbers.<br /><br />I tried to pick a couple of sheets that were colorful, w/ interesting poses and a couple of Stars. <br /><br />First are #37-48 w/ Bobby Layne, Leon Hart and the Rookie cards of Marion Motley & Otto Graham.<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/50fb37-48f.jpg"><br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/50fb37-48r.jpg"><br /><br /><br />Second pages are #133-144 (last 12 cards in the 144 card set) w/ Pete Pihos and the last card of the immortal Rookie Knox Ramsey!!<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/50fb133-144f.jpg"><br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/50fb133-144r.jpg"><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Will be looking forward to seeing some others post cards from this fantastic little set!

Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>I made the leap & sent my '50 Bowman complete set to SGC for grading.<br /><br />This is a set like my '52 Bowman Large (shown in the '52 Thread) that was put together back in the day & has been virtually untouched to this day. I sent it in for grading w/out ever having upgraded or changed a single card, as I wanted to see how it would fare in today's world--warts and all!<br /><br />These were bought, played with and stored away in cigar boxes w/ rubber bands around them, altho I did put some cardboard on top & bottom of each stack. (Lord only knows why I did that!)<br /><br />Anyhow, they came back 100% graded, w/ the average grade in the SGC 80-6 range--a few GOOD-VG and many were SGC 84-86-88. I did get 1 in MINT 9.<br /><br />Below are just a few I scanned to show, including #1 & #144, but if anyone has a question, comment or would like to see any other card I will be happy to accomodate. Both sets are listed in the SGC Set Registry.<br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/sgc50fba.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/sgc50fbb.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q285/fyoung17/sgc50fbc.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>Hi Leon--<br /><br />Thank You for commenting. <br /><br />I was NOT surprised that they all graded, as I was never one to disfigure my cards or paste them in a scrapbook or similar, but I DID shuffle through them & played w/ them, so getting some nice grades made it alot easier to stand the expense!<br /><br />I have a '50 Bowman baseball set as well, but being as how I did not like FB as much as Baseball, I don't believe they would fare as well in grading as I played w/ them alot more!<br /><br />I'm going to start going though them soon to see how I think they would do compared to the FB!

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but Fred, I don't recall you having posted any of your 50 Bowman Baseball (set!!) on the postwar baseball board. We've had a lot of good threads on them over there. You'll pick up a lot of good info too.

Posted By: <b>Fred Y</b><p>Actually, I haven't gotten around to pulling out the set yet, so I haven't gone through them to check condition.<br /><br />They are like the football in that they are in 12 pocket sheets, which I did yrs ago.<br /><br />I'll try to make a point to get to them soon & at least post a few scans! <br /><br />Thanks for your interest & for reminding me!
