1948 Bowman Football Card Premium Album

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $1,067

Outstanding, rarely encountered 1948 Bowman football premium album. The album, which measures 10 by 13 inches, was designed to hold all 108 cards issued as part of Bowman's inaugural football issue. Olive-colored with "Touchdown Football Album" emblazoned on the front in burgundy print, the album is bound by three staples and contains a total of thirteen pages (in addition to the front and back cover), twelve of which contain nine numbered slots for the corresponding cards. The player's name, position, and team appear underneath each opening. Offered as a redemption prize in exchange for wrappers, the album is seldom seen and is even harder to find in the exceptional condition of the offered example. It is bright and clean, with just light wear at the corners, and faint evidence of an erased name on the front cover in the area designed to identify the album owner. Light wrinkles on the interior pages near the corner mounts suggest that long ago a complete set of cards was almost certainly housed in the album. This is a very interesting and scarce Bowman premium that would be a worthy and significant companion piece to any 1948 Bowman football complete set. Overall Excellent condition. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,067
