View Set Composition

An excellent issue that is very tough to complete in high grade. Like the previous year's "large" set, 1953 Bowman's are often encountered with poor centering. The best bets: card #1 (Eddie Le Baron), Frank Gifford, and the last card #96 (Williams Cross). To read an in-depth article, click here.
