Football Sets: 1948-1979 [Last Updated 01/02/2015]

1948 Bowman Football - -- I found card #53, the old Bear Frank (Monk) Maznicki, from this set up at our cabin a few years back. It is in well-loved condition and I got a real kick out of it hiding in a locker for 40 years! In April of '98, my folks had to sell the cabin. The card now serves a dual purpose -- as a reminder of the greats of the game, and of the cabin I so dearly loved as a child. I've decided to (slowly) build the set in VG or less condition! My only desire regarding condition is to be able to read the text on the back and see the picture on the front. Need 96 more: 1 3 4 6 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 38 39 40 41 42 43 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 77 78 79 80 81 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 92 93 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 104 105 106 107 108
