Default 1955 Bowman Pick-Up

Arrived Saturday....looks decent. It's difficult finding these cards without major edge chipping & centering issues.

I don't collect those, but love the TV design.

Nice pickup! My favorite set of all time. I have the Minnie Minoso and Mickey Mantle. Any certain reason why you picked Tom Alston?

Nice card.
I love the 55 set. Have it complete in raw and about 66% complete in graded.
My dad collected them when he was a kid so I figured I would too.
