Today’s Find: 1953 Bowman Baseball – An Unexpected Treasure

You just never know who will walk in the door.  Today the great niece of Hall-of-Famer, Al Lopez brought in two very clean team signed baseballs, a 1946 Pittsburgh Pirates ball and a 1956 Cleveland Indians baseball.    Al played on the 1946 Pirates team and managed the 1956 Indians.  In the same box as the baseballs were some very attractive 1952 Topps, 1953 Topps and 1953 Bowman Color Baseball cards.  Today I want to highlight the 1953 Bowman cards.  This was the first year, Bowman used kodachrome photography. Cards were no longer painted. They were the actual players out on the baseball diamond.  These cards are gorgeous. Here are some samples of my favorite cards.
