I stand corrected. I seen a GM card go last night for over $200 so I didn't think I'd have a chance on this one.
I threw in my max bid and went to bed only to wake this morning to see that I won it.
It's been a tough one trying to get but glad to say I finally own one.

I have seen several references to an orange background version of the 52 Crandall. Does anyone have one they can post ?

4 more '52s down and a couple of '71 upgrades. I wish Topps had laid out the McLain better; the team name not being centered over the photo always makes it look wrong. Find a centered team name and the photo is off; find a centered photo and the name is off. Always wondered how the grading companies assess centering on this card.

The '71s are PSA 7s; Russel and Erautt are PSA 5s; Sain (correct bio) is a PSA 4.

Manson, no. Munson, yes.

Never noticed before but certainly looks to be #15.

Ever have a card that on the surface shouldnít really qualify as anything special, but for some reason absolutely captivates you? For me this is it. Probably because this was one of the first old cards I got my hands on as a kid back in the late 1980ís. No, the Ď54 Bowman set is not going to win any accolades for design among itís peers, and all things considered this is not exactly the best likeness in the world of Campy - who looks like he was just made to run with the pitchers and is now considering whether or not he needs to go throw up. I donít know though, there is something about the colors on this one and that hat - is it a beanie? Is it an early batting helmet...? I donít know, just always been intriguing to me. Was glad to pick this one up still in great shape and fairly cheap.

Happy Holidays!
-John

It is a batting helmet. The original photo matches but the artist who did the Flexichrome did a bad job of shading and the foreshortening effect is messed up. I love clean 54 Bowmans. Nice card.

Thanks. I did find this pic online. Looks like they also took some airbrushing liberty with the "B". And is this a hat or a helmet? Seeing the B&W picture I'm not sure...
