Product Details

User Rating:

The 1953 Bowman Baseball card set is considered by many collectors to be one of the most beautiful trading card sets ever produced. Relying solely on full-color photographs, 1953 Bowman Color Baseball marked the first time Bowman utilized this medium in a trading card set.

Bowman also released the lesser-known 1953 Bowman Black & White set the same year.

1953 Bowman Color Baseball Cards Set Details

Forgoing traditional aspects of card design, the 1953 Bowman Color Baseball fronts lack any writing whatsoever. The unencumbered player image stands alone in vivid color, allowing collectors to examine every detail of the photograph. Measuring  2-1/2" by 3-3/4", this slightly over-sized dimension permits the photography to truly stand out as if each card were a miniature canvas.

1953 Bowman Baseball Cards - Color and Black & White Series 1

At just 160 total cards, 1953 Bowman Color is one of the smallest sets the company ever made and was printed in two separate series. Card numbers #1-112 constitute the first series or "low numbers" and card numbers #113-160 comprise the second series or "high numbers." Set builders will often find that the high number cards are extremely difficult to find with good centering, making the task of building a high-grade set very costly in time and money.

The 1953 Bowman Color checklist is dotted with Hall of Fame players, including popular cards for Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford and Yogi Berra. While certainly not his last baseball card, 1953 served as the final appearance of Stan Musial in a Bowman set. Fittingly, it is considered by vintage collectors to be his best-looking card of all-time.

Although the majority of the cards feature single players, the New York Yankees receive an additional focus in 1953 Bowman Color. An intriguing card combines a trio of Yankees stars with Yogi Berra, Hank Bauer and Mickey Mantle. Teammates Billy Martin and Phil Rizzuto are also paired on another combo card in the set.

1953 Bowman Black & White Baseball Cards Set Details

Interestingly enough, however, Bowman also produced a 64-card set done entirely in black-and-white photography that same year. No explanation is available for the two different and very contrasting sets. It is believed that the 1953 Bowman Black & White cards were originally intended to be a third color series, but Bowman instead decided to reduce costs by printing the cards without color and numbering them #1-64. Supporting that theory, the overall card design is virtually identical except for the lack of color.

While the color set is loaded with household names, the Black & White set consists primarily of lesser-known players. Key Hall of Fame options include Bob Lemon and Casey Stengel. Although not designed or intended to be assembled as a complete set, many treat the entire 1953 Bowman production run as such.

User Reviews

  1. This set ranks right up there with T206, ’52 Topps, ’33 Goudey and ’57 Topps for design and overall visual appeal. When I was a kid I was a little put off it because I didn’t know the merely good players by sight (Allie Reynolds? How am I supposed to know THAT?). Time and practice (and years of reading and collecting) eased up that one minor critique. For pure visual appeal I’d rank the “color” set #2 all time behind the T206s.

  2. as a professional photographer, this is my all time favorite set. the portraits and action shots both are done so well. I wonder who the photographer(s) were, interesting

  3. The 1953 Bowman baseball card set consists of 2 different sets: the 1953 color set (#1-160) and the 1953 B&W set (#1-64). I think the 1953 color set is one of the most beautiful bubble gum card sets ever produced. It certainly was revolutionary for its time, as it was the first time that full-color photos were used in baseball cards, instead of just drawings or colorized b&w photos. The 1953 color set is a very difficult set to complete. Only those collectors with deep pockets can afford to buy or put together the 1953 complete color set. I was never crazy about the B&W set, so for many years, I did not buy any cards from the 1953 B&W set. The 1953 B&W set is even more difficult to complete than the color set. I don’t know if I will eventually complete the 1953 color set, as I am missing just 15 cards. Most of those 15 cards I am missing are quite expensive: Mantle, Reese, Musial, Snider, Feller, Ford, Berra, Mathews, etc.
