1953 Bowman Color Pee Wee Reese!

I was finally able to land a card I've desired for as long as I have known of its existence. As per my usual requirements regarding condition, not horribly mangled was the basic requirement with a few qualifiers tossed in. The copy I secured met those needs and I'm now the proud owner of Pee Wee Reese's 1953 Bowman Color card! She's a beaut!

The card has retained its great color and beyond a crease and an arrow on the front of the card -- which the seller mentioned he had drawn to show where Pee Wee was about to throw the ball -- the card is as clean as I could hope for in the price range I was working with. I will eventually land a slabbed copy and upgrade but I've always been more concerned with owning these all-time great legendary cards than owning high-grade copies of them.

The seller also mentioned the card had been glued to a scrapbook, hence the back looking as it does. There is so much I could say about this card's greatness but I could never really do it justice. Let's just say it is a piece of cardboard everybody should own, Dodgers' fan or not. The card running me less than $25 shipped to my door didn't hurt matters either.


  1. Wow. Under $25 shipped? Awesome pickup.

  2. Congrats! I hope to own a copy of that one someday.

  3. So you are sending me that for my double play binder? You're so nice.

  4. what a lovely card! And a great deal, even with the paper loss!

  5. I so adore this card. Well done, sir. Great price.
