1948 Bowman Basketball Checklist

When 1948 Bowman Basketball cards were released, no other major company had produced a series of player cards before. In fact, Bowman wouldn’t do it again and the market for basketball cards was left wide open until the release of 1957 Topps Basketball.

Each card in this set measures 2 1/8″ by 2 1/2″ making them nearly square and over an inch shorter than modern day cards. Scattered throughout the checklist are also play cards that explain a particular basketball play with a diagram on the front and an explanation on the reverse.

Our checklist includes all of the cards in this set and can be searched or sorted as needed.
