1953 Bowman B & W Stengel just above the barrel of the bat. (Casey's head lopped off by a 52 Topps card.)

I'm sure someone on the board here has the '53 wrapper, if not each year of Topps and Bowman....

Absolutely Love the Woolworth's picture. From 1974 till 1978 when our local Woolworths closed down My Dad and I would stop by in september and the Manager would sell us all the left over boxes he had for 40% off retail. we opened almost all of it to build sets...

Indeed. I recall seeing mid 70s boxes and that fantastic Gold Rush bubble gum on the shelves when I would go shopping with my mom. Stupid me bought the candy and not the cards.

You started off this thread saying everyone has seen the 1952 display pic, but just in case you haven't, here you go. Wouldn't that be a dream?
