I'm really starting to like the '54 Bowman Baseball. I've always been a Topps kind of guy, but for some reason these are really appealing to me. Here are 5 HOFers that I've picked up here and there. I'm going to try to add a few more HOFers to my collection and may one day go after the entire set, but that would be a back burner project as I have too many other irons in the fire right now. Anybody else like the '54 Bowman Baseball?

Yes Dave I also like and collect 54 Bowman. Right now I'm only going after the Hall of Famer's in ex/mt or better condition.

That Bob Lemon card you have is a beaut. They're all nice but I haven't found a 54 Lemon in that grade and presents that well for a fair price.

Actually, that's not completely true. A few months back there was one on ebay that was ending about 11:00 my time and I fell asleep before I could bid. It ended up selling for much less than I would have spend.

Hate when that happens

I love that set. But it doesn't seem collectors do. Once I finish my current pursuits, that may be the first 1950's set I try yo complete.

Imagine if it had Aaron, Kaline, and Banks. What could have been.

It is one of my favorite sets and one that I am working on completing w/ strictly high grade cards. My main collecting focus is 1949 - 1955 Bowmans in SGC 88 and higher. Glad to see other collectors are interested in the set.

Here's my '54 Bowman, not a huge fan of this set as I prefer the 53 color or '55 Bowman...but to each his own:
