1949 Bowman

Card Dimensions: 2116” x 2½”
Rookie Cards: Because the is the first comprehensive set of the post-war period, with the exception of Blatnik’s and Rowe’s cards, all the cards are rookie cards.
Additional Information: Starting with card #109, Bowman added the player’s name to the front of the card. All the previous cards in the set only show the player’s photo on the front. A couple of trades between the Phillies and Cubs during the ’48-’49 off-season resulted in Bowman depicting a number of players in their old team’s uniform and using their new team designation on the back.

Topps replicated the design of this set with its 2006 Bowman Heritage issue, which included parallels bearing the same dimensions as this set. In addition, Topps included Ashburn and Roberts in its Rookie Reprints inserts for 2001 Bowman and 2001 Bowman Chrome.
