In today's perspective this set, which unlike Bowman's 1951 issue, offered no major debut cards, somehow pales in comparison; yet, all other factors being equal, many collectors view 1952 Bowmans as being aesthetically superior to the 1951 issue. Cards of Mantle, Mays, and Stan Musial compensate for the absence of Ted Williams from this set.
