Offered is a 229-card near set of 1949 Bowman baseball cards. For its 1949 issue, Bowman made two major changes from the preceding year's black-and-white production. The company added color to team uniforms (while enhancing backgrounds with several different pastel shades), and expanded the set to a total of 240 cards. Boasting several Hall of Famer rookie cards and noted for its difficult high-series cards (numbers 145-240), the attractive 1949 Bowman product has always been a monumental challenge for collectors to assemble. Highlights include: #’s 1 Bickford (VG), 11 Boudreau (VG), 18 Thomson (VG-), 23 Doerr (VG/EX), 26 Kell (VG/EX), 27 Feller (VG), 29 Kiner (PR, tape), 33 Spahn (VG), 36 Reese (GD), 46 Roberts (VG/EX), 64 D. DiMaggio (VG/EX), 65 Slaughter (VG/EX), 70 Furillo (VG), 82 Page (GD), 84 Campanella (GD, mark), 85 Mize NNOF (VG/EX), 98B Rizzuto NOF (VG/EX), 100 Hodges (VG), 110 Wynn (VG), 111 Schoendienst (VG/EX), 162 Roe (VG), 164 Wertz (VG/EX), 174 Moore (VG/EX), 175 Appling (VG/EX), 185 Reiser (EX), 194 Branca (VG/EX), 209 Keller (VG/EX), 214 Ashburn (GD), 225 Coleman (VG), 229 Lopat (VG/EX), 233 Doby (GD, pencil), 238 Lemon (VG/EX) and 240 Young (GD/VG).
