Replacing 51B/52B Reprints with Originals
Just received a stack of 30 different 1951-1952 Bowmans. I'll sort and organize them into my set binders with you.
Divided them up by teams, but then realized I had a mixed batch of 51's and 52's. They're really easy to tell apart by the players name. 51's have block print lettering. 52's have autographs.
Then I pull out my set binders, which are organized by team performance with players from oldest to youngest. After that, I pull out the reprints and insert the originals. My 51B set is really starting to grow now at 41% complete. I anticipate reaching over 50% completion by the end of this summer at the current rate of acquisition. I have some heavy hitters on the way. The 52B is is at about 25% completion, but I will see how 51B goes first.
