    1948 Bowman Baseball High Grade Complete Set (48). The national pastime would once again take center stage thanks to Bowman's premier baseball series of 48 cards in the spring of 1948.

The set offers a tremendous line-up up rookie cards with names like Musial, Kiner, Spahn, Rizzuto, Slaughter, Berra and others.
