A few Fridays ago I featured the 1953 Bowman Cubs. At the time the only Bowman '53s I had were reprints.
Not any more. Thanks to ebay and Checkoutmycards, I've got all eleven of the real things. And I am very pleased with the way they look.
This was my first major Checkoutmycards purchase. I was happy with the cards, the cost, and the shipping time. The only problem I have is that I would have liked to make offers on some of the cards, but in order to do that, I would have had to first purchase store credit. And if I my offers were declined, then it would cost me 20% to get my money back. I like ebay's free Best Offer system better.
Despite being 57 years old, the color on the cards still looks very nice. I just wish a few of these were taken at Wrigley Field instead of the Polo Grounds. I would love to see the ivy and brick of this era in color.
I'll list the players names along with the cards, since that is missing from the front and I doubt you would recognize most of the players by face. Heck, you probably don't recognize the names anyway...I know I don't know too much about most of these guys!
