1953 Bowman color

Bowman Base Set
In 1953 Bowman put out two sets of cards. The first set of baseball cards in color consisted of 160 cards

Bowman used the most basic card design possible in its 1953 sets: just a photo of a player, a white border and a black line separating the two. For card backs, Bowman used a design that looked almost exactly like the ones found in the 1952 Topps set.

The high numbered cards (#113-160) are the scarcest of the set.
