i sort of stumbled into a small cache of 1950's cards recently. there was one card in particular that i was after, and it was included in a lot with about a dozen others. i was somewhat surprised when this beauty fell out of the package.
here's the back of the card which is really bright.
there was one other 1953 bowman color dodger card in the lot, and it was fellow boy of summer carl furillo's
as for the cards, they are the 3rd and 4th dodger cards i have from the set, two of which (the pee wee reese and the hodges) sit firmly in my top ten-ish favorite dodger cards in my collection. and to think the acquisition of the hodges card was a happy byproduct of a purchase of a different card. i'll show that card in a couple of weeks or so...
