1948 Bowman

Number of Required Items: 48
View Set Composition
Current Finest Possible Set Rating: 10.747

Bowman's first try at baseball cards is similar in design to Play Ball's first attempt in 1939. Unfortunately, two of the era's biggest stars, DiMaggio and Williams did not appear; the first cards of future hall-of-famers Stan Musial, Yogi Berra, Warren Spahn and Ralph Kiner, however, make this a solid effort.
