I have spent numerous hours on the internet searching Google though possible keyword combinations and I have realized that besides the numerous eBay listings there are also some stand alone websites offering 1949 Bowman cards for sale.
So, for anyone out there interested in buying 1949 Bowman's or other vintage issues here are some of the websites other than eBay that I've come across:
- Dave's Vintage Baseball Cards
- Gar Miller Cards
- Clean Sweep Auctions
- Wayne Varner's Shoebox
- Mike Wheat Baseball Cards
- Kit Young Baseball Cards
The Source of My Content: (Danny Litwhiler card from Kit Young Cards)
Card #97 of a 240 card set that was issued in 1949 by the Bowman Gum Company.
This particular card has good centering, but was cut so that the image sits slightly high and right. As I am finding on almost all of the '49 Bowmans there are rough cut vertical edges on both sides. There is a minimal print flaw with slight overlapping of color shifting upwards to the top of Danny's hat. The back of the card has a small wax spot and a dark spot in the paper. 3 out of 4 corners are untouched.
This card is notable due to the fact that it hasn't toned as much as some of my other cards, the front and back colors are still vibrant with only slight age toning.
