Looking for info. on 1952 Bowman Baseball card wihout advertising on back. Salesman's sample? Topic: Case series design
June 26, 2019 / By Kolby
Question: Hello. I have found a 1952 Bowman Baseball #101 Mickey Mantle. It resembles every other picture of a 1952 Bowman Mantle I have found except that the reverse has no advertising info. The back has blank spaces above and below the "No. 101 in the 1952 series" and "picture cards". What is missing is the offer for a baseball hat for 5 wrappers and a dollar. I know Topps had saleman's samples around this time did Bowman as well? Also could the 1952 Bowman have been issued with 2 different designed backs - certainly other sets and years did. Thank you for any information.

My guess is that it's legit if it says #101 on it. If that's the case, I'll give you $600 for it.

Ancestry has census records, which are a key part of research. The first thing to do is if Grandma knows the birth and death date of Grandpa, and HOPEFULLY, the names of his parents. If she also knows about when and where they died (his parents), that is also important. The names of their parents should be on the death certificates. How about if Grandpa has brother or sisters? cousins ?? Grandpa and his cousins will share the same grandparents. Someone might have old family pictures too. At some point, you will locate one of the family who was alive in 1920.. which is the most recent census available. What you find on that record is the person, the immediate family, where they were born, AND birth place of parents. In other words, if grandpa happened to be 5 yrs old, living w/ mom and dad, it will show the birth places of dad's parents. Sometimes the parent is even living with the son and family. There have been census taken since 1790 until present, but more recent ones are confidential. And 1890 burned up. The tricky part is using other records to know what state or county you need to be working. You are trying to work back to 1880... that one is fully transcribed online. In that, I hope we can pin down a black Bowman family that belongs to you. This is at www.familysearch.org (lds church site)..click on search, then census. Just for example.. I did a check, and find Samuel Bowman in Georgia. Samuel is age 42.. means he was born in Georgia in 1838.. and his parents also born in Georgia. What blew me away is Minnie Blackwell who is age 99, and supposed to be his mother (maybe his wife's mother) who also says she was born in Georgia. Do the math. While census records do have errors in them.. it is very possible to find the ancestor who actually came to the US, and about when. She does sound a bit old to be the mother. Mostly, I want to give you an idea of WHAT IS USED to track back in records. You and I both realize that before 1870, the black families won't be found in the same records. It is a sad reality. However, I have found many white family researchers, who have family documents like wills or inventories that do give names and ages of the slaves involved. And most of these persons are willing to share the info. Here is another place I like a lot... www.cyndislist.com which has both beginning research files, and connections to the info needed for African American research. Please stop by there. I love nothing more than seeing someone young who really cares about finding their background. Maybe this info can get dad interested .

Bowman is primarily either a English surname meaning archer or bowman. Or it is an Anglicized variation of Bachman or Bauman. I grew up in the Pa, Dutch Country and Bowman was a common Pennsylvania German surname. So your Bowman could be either English or German. Surnames are not always an indication of ethnic origins. Most American blacks and many of the descendants of the the early white settlers have some Indian ancestry. When black slaves ran away they often found a safe haven among the Indians and where accepted into the tribes. That's why a lot of blacks claim Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminole,or other southern tribal heritage. Also the Cherokee and other southern tribes owned slaves primarily in Oklahoma and Arkansas and after the slaves where freed at the end of the Civil War they became part of the tribe. There's a book I read a few years back called "Black Indians" I don't remember the author but it's worth a read if you come across a copy

There is very possibly more than one coat of arms for Bowman. The people who sell these based solely on a surname are very deceitful if they do not explain that it might be one granted to your direct ancestors and it might not. It is possible one of your direct ancestors was granted one but the companies that peddle them will only have one because they sell them to gullible people who do not understand that they might or might not be entitled to them. Coats of arms were granted to individuals who passed them on to their son. Not everyone with the same surname comes from the same root. Many have the same surname. For instance, there might be 10 for Bowman but that does not mean everyone with the name Bowman is any way related to the 10 that were granted one, much less be a direct descendant.

Bowman is a British or Irish surname, now I'm not saying that your name didn't come over from Africa with your ancestors, to be sure for that you would have to trace your roots, but I am telling you where that spelling of that particular name originated, which is Great Britain.

Join Yahoo Groups for Sports Cards or Baseball Cards and Post What You have for Sale. Topps are over produced but Fleer and Donruss are not, look for Rookie Cards which will be in Demand. Any Barry Bonds Cards Hot and any small Sets like Fleer Update, Topps Rookies or if Donruss has a Rookie Set will be more Valuable. Most Cards wil not be Valuable called Common Cards go for 2 to 4 Cents.

DON'T SELL! Cards from the 80's are worth absolutely nothing since they were overproduced and sell for cheap. From recent auctions on eBay, 87 Topps sets sell for around $5/set and 87 Topps averages $3/set

Check a local shop, maybe they could give you a bid on them. Or you could do a little work and sell the lot on ebay. Listing the cards included and so on. good luck.
