Bowman Card Company
Bowman was a bubble gum manufacturer that produced popular cards in the 1940s and 1950s. It was started by Jacob Bowman - a gum salesman. It was sold to Topps in 1956. Bowman cards remain highly sought after by collectors. These sets have interesting variations that can be confusing to some collectors. For example, in 1952, Bowman produced a set of regular-sized cards (which are slightly smaller than Topps cards) and an identical set in larger size cards. When purchasing 1952 Bowman cards online, collectors should be careful about whether they are getting regular Bowman or 1952 large Bowman.
