This swan song for Bowman (who would sell out to Topps later in the year) is commonly referred to as the "Television Set," and was a commendable effort. This issue is somewhat challenging to finish, with copies often found with poor centering or chipping on its brown borders. Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Ernie Banks (from the high number series) all show up for Bowman's going away party. For an in-depth article, click here.

Notes: This set is a work in progress. As new varieties are graded, they may be added to the set.
