User Rating:

Few sets are more important in the hobby than 1951 Bowman Baseball. Boasting a checklist with 30 Hall of Fame players, including several rookie cards, the release helped usher in a new era of collecting.

1951 Bowman is a groundbreaking trading card product that is one of the most popular and valuable sets ever made.

1951 Bowman Baseball Set Details

The 1951 Bowman Baseball set features color art reproductions of actual photos and consists of 324 cards. The 2-1/16" by 3-1/8" cards are the same width as the previous year, but slightly longer. This release is the crown jewel of the Bowman brand thanks to rookie cards for Mickey Mantle (#253) and Willie Mays (#305).

1951 Bowman Baseball Cards 1

Bowman produced baseball cards from 1948 to 1955. They were the only major baseball card producer in 1950, but in 1951, Topps began producing cards, thereby creating a rivalry between the two that lasted for five years. In 1956, Topps bought out Bowman and integrated the Bowman brand into their product offerings.

There was a period of time between 1948 and 1952 when the Bowman Gum Company was the king of the trading card market. With meticulous attention to detail and a highly competitive nature, Jacob Warren Bowman, the owner and founder of the company, used his entrepreneurial spirit to build a successful trading card series.

The 324-card set was the largest ever produced by Bowman and accounted for a large majority of the league from that season being immortalized on cardboard. Based on black-and-white photographs that were then recreated in full color, the vibrant colors and realism of the depicted players helped 1951 Bowman Baseball stand out from competing brands. Other than the image, the only attribute on the card fronts is a white border, thin black frame and blackened text box with the player's name in white.

1951 Bowman Baseball card backs have a little more to them, including several lines of basic stats and info, a lengthy bio and a large ad at the bottom for the "Baseball Picture Cards." The card number is also noted. Additionally, the player's name in red makes it stand out against the rest of the text on the back.

1951 Bowman Baseball Cards 2

Primarily issued with a vertical orientation, 39 of the cards were printed horizontally, including two of the most significant cards in the set, Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle. The product was issued in multiple series and the high numbers (#253-324) are the most difficult to find. This includes both the Mays and Mantle cards.

In addition to the two iconic rookie cards, the checklist is loaded with marquee Hall of Famers, including Ted Williams, Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider and Warren Spahn, along with rookies for Whitey Ford and Nellie Fox.1951 Bowman Baseball Cards 4 However, the impressive checklist still misses a few big names, including Stan Musial, Jackie Robinson and Joe DiMaggio.

While the pricing for the Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays prevents many collectors from completing the set, the rest of 1951 Bowman Baseball can be found for more affordable prices, especially in mid-grade.

User Reviews

  1. Breathtaking cards – would be interested in knowing more about how the images were created.

  2. Despite this set featuring both Mantle and May’s true rookie cards, I feel that this set is still very underrated in the hobby. I would understand if the cards were in black and white and miniature or over-sized but they are a normal size and have pretty decent color. The Mays and Mantle are beauties and this set also features Whitey Ford’s rookie year.

  3. The 1951 Bowman baseball card set is a classic set, with 2 different levels of scarcity: #1-252, and #253-324, known as the high-numbered series. Only those collectors with deep pockets can afford to buy or put together the 1951 Bowman complete set. I don’t know if I will eventually complete the 1951 Bowman set, as I am missing just 16 cards. Most of those 16 cards I am missing are quite expensive: Williams, Ford, Reese, Snider, and then those difficult high numbers (among them Mays and Mantle), which are tough to find in any condition.
