Default 1953 Bowman Color and Black & White -- Card Gallery

The 1953 Topps thread is done, so we're moving on to the 1953 Bowman Color set. Same idea as before, post a card a day from the 1953 Bowman Color set in numerical order.

Davey Williams starts it off.

Hopefully Al chimes in that this is the rare blue-line Williams.

While I really like the 53 Bowman set it is kind of boring in terms of variations. I don’t think PSA or SCD list any. There is one in the B&W set. I think I may have some variants for it. Will have to check

I am sill upset with you about jacking up the price on the 52 Sleater

Has the player sliding under Reese ever been identified?

Not sure if the player was actually identified. Lots of stories about this card- it was a black and white image shot before the war and hand colored, the sliding player was Billy Herman, or it was Cookie Lavagetto, or someone else entirely. But never anything that seemed definitive.

Not the nicest example, but it's the only 1953 Bowman card I actually have...total classic, found this in an old shop and had to have it. Someday I'll tackle this set...and upgrade this card...

Another board member just pm'd me, the sliding player is Frenchy Bordagaray, and the only year he was a teammate of Pee Wee's was 1942.

Thanks for the info. Not a name I am familiar with, but looks like he played for11 years from 1934-1945.
