1954 Bowman

Bowman Gum’s 1954 Football set consists of 128 cards, each 2-1/2” by 3-3/4”. Each card front features a colorized likeness of a player, with a white banner at the bottom border containing his name, team affiliation and mascot. Card backs again identify the player’s name along with statistics and a quiz. The 1954 Bowman set is anchored by Ray Mathews (#1), Joe Perry (#6), Norm Van Brocklin (#8), Pete Pihos (#9), Elroy Hirsch (#32), Otto Graham (#40), Doak Walker (#41), Y.A. Tittle (#42), Lou Groza (#52), Bobby Layne (#53) and Frank Gifford (#55), as well as by the rookie cards of Doug Atkins (#4), George Blanda (#23) and John Lattner (#128). Mid-series cards (#s 65-96) are short prints and thus among the most difficult pieces in this set to find. Error cards of Tom Finnan (#97) and Emlen Tunnel (#102) are more coveted than their corrected versions.
