Bowman's poor effort in 52 sealed their eventual doom

Bowman's poor effort in 52 sealed their eventual doom

Collector score: ** (2 Stars)
While Topps was producing their first real issue in 1952, a set that would go on to become the most collectible of them all, Bowman released this crummy set of rinky-dink cards that had advertisements on the back. The cards have a facsimile autograph on the fronts, but really nothing new. This set was the death knell for Bowman. Kids overwhelmingly preferred the Topps. A turf war erupted among the distributors, with Bowman salesmen insisting that their product must be displayed at least 24 inches away from the competition. All of that being said, there are some valuable cards in the set, and I wouldn’t toss any of them in the wastebasket!
