Jay,
Nothing wrong with collector grade cards. Mine are mostly mid-grade as well (5-6). Very few people can afford the set in high grade (NM or better). I don't mind a soft corner or shift in centering if the price is right and I think that most collectors would agree with that.

I'm looking forward to seeing your cards. Hopefully you got the Jack Zilly card (best looking card in the set imo)!

Take care,
Scott

Scott, I am right there with you. Mid grade all the way for me. If I tried collecting high grade, I would never finish and wouldn't be any happier.

Steve, those Rams cards are so awesome! Every time I cruise through looking at 51s and 52s, the Rams cards stand out! I think I am going to work on this set, thanks to the inspiration provided by Jay. Can't wait to get the Rams cards!

Oh, I did buy a common the other day. Kalminar was my first one because he's a Ram!

I agree that those are some great Rams cards!

Keep those great scans coming! Such an awesome looking set.

I will post my scans later this week. Will have 7-8 cards to post (so far).

Also, through some research, saw that the topic of the 1951 Bowman football set had been discussed on the forum back in 2007:

I will be going down this road myself. I am falling in love with this set more everytime I look at it! Jeff said he uses the standard 9 to a page pocket sheets. I have considered this and believe it would work fine. Jeff has some great stuff and knows what he is talking about.

I am also considering 4 pocket 3 1/2" 5" pages. In using these I would first put the card in a Card Saver I then into the pocket of the page. You could get up to 8 cards per page if you placed them front and back or 4 if you want to see the backs. These pages can hold up to postcard size from what I understand. So you could store all of your sets uniformly if you wanted. Also, instead of the standard Ultra Pro binder, I think I will use a Unikeep binder. I have a link to their site in this thread. They are stackable and archive-safe binders. I really like them. I can't take credit for the 4 pocket page/unikeep system. I stole it from Adam aka exhibitman.

I currently store some vintage photos in the Unikeep binder I have and will soon transition my '53 Topps baseball set and '65 Topps baseball partial set into the 4 pocket pages and Unikeeps. It is probably a little more expensive this way but worth it IMHO. I want to get them out of the boxes they currently reside in and enjoy flipping through them without endangering them.

Sorry for what turned into a long -winded response.
