Set Type: Primary
Card dimensions: 21⁄16” x 3⅛”
Rookie Cards: Russ Meyer, Bubba Church, Dick Whitman, Milo Candini, Ken Silvestri, Ken Johnson
Additional Information: The largest, in number of cards, of the original Bowman sets. Bowman essentially reused the entire design with its 1952 offering, with the exception of replacing the black text box containing the player’s name with a facsimile picture and the use of plain black text on the back.
Topps replicated the design of this set when it released the 2005 Bowman Heritage set. While the primary set was standard-sized, Topps also issued a parallel mini-set that used the same dimensions as the original Bowman offering.
