Ugly Beauty

I was able to snag a 1953 Bowman Black & White card from eBay for just over $30 bucks shipped. It's got rounded corners, creases, stains, edge dings, and a big tape mark on the back. And it's a thing of beauty.

With this card, I have completed the cigar box set of 1953 Bowman Black & White's. Beckett low book for the 64 card set is 2 grand. This set is mostly good, fair, poor, or Stengel-ish.
