Default My new find: Uncut 1949 Bowman Low Number Sheet

Posted By: Joey

Although I have picked up many really nice vintage cards, this is by FAR the best find I have ever uncovered. I work in home health and noticed this at a patients home. I told them how neat the piece was and they gave it to me as a gift for all the help I have given them over the years. The patient told me he picked it up at a yard sale years ago and was ready to give it a new home. Still cannot believe he chose me:)
Welcome, the new cornerstone of my collection:



Although it will never be sold, I am a little curious as to possible scarcity and value. Thanks for looking!

Great pick-up! I'm always amazed that with all the publicity this hobby has received over the past 5-10 years, that people still don't recognize what they have sitting around their homes or in their attics. Thanks for the photo.

Great sheet is the back printed correctly or is it the triple overprint variety?

Great piece! I would guess it is worth several thousand dollars, but others here could probably give a better estimate on uncut sheets.

The back is printed regularly. No signs of overprint.

You said that the backs of the cards on this 1949 Bowman sheet
are not overprinted. Then this particular sheet is pretty rare.
Typically, these sheets are overprinted with the bios from the
3rd sheet in the 1949 Bowman set. Quite a few of these sheets
have surfaced in the hobby the past 35 years. I have one and it
is overprinted; therefore, it very difficult to place a value
on it. Since the back of yours is "clean", using a Price Guide,
you can determine the value of it yourself. Of course, you have
to consider the condition of each individual card in your eval-
uation. With HOF guys like Musial, Doerr, Feller, Kiner, Spahn
& Reese on this sheet, you'll be surprised how valuable an item
that you have. What this sheet will sell for is another story.
Collectors of uncut sheets (like me) are willing to pay a extra
premium for such a great piece of BB card history.

A baseball theme in red, white and blue - it is even the approximate shape of the flag. How American is that.

Although it may look better if you cut off one column (oh no!).
