1940's Bowmans

One new addition for each of the 1940's Bowman sets.  The Reiser addition puts the 48B collection at only 6 away from completion, while the 49B addition just over 25%.

Still Collecting Old Bowmans

I'm still getting adjusted to this new Blogger format.  It inserts pictures backwards, so I have to do it one at a time.  Glad I don't have 20 photos to upload.  Just 2 new acquisitions today.  

Red Schoendienst has been a tough one to find at a decent price until now.  At $8.08, I almost got this one for 10% BV.  This acquisition leaves only Mantle for low series cards.  Otherwise, we're now talking 5 more high series cards to complete the 53B Color series.  

With the acquisition of this umpire, I'm now missing only 1 more umpire card to complete the extensive umpire set.  I think there are a total of 30 umpires in this 320-card set.  Overall, I'm down to the last 9 mostly common cards to complete 55B.
