Here are some great artifacts from the very old school days of card collecting. We have here three Bowman football card display boxes. They are from 1950, 1952, and an unspecified year (likely 1951) in the same period.


A bit of history for you: The original Bowman Gum company began in 1927 and lasted until they were acquired by rival Topps in 1956. In 1989, Topps revived the brand for select lines of its sports trading cards.
