Current Finest Possible Set Rating: 10.340

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.
