1952 Dallas Texans Mail Day

Monday was a good mail day! Last week I was the high bidder for two eBay auctions.

I'm working on a 1952 Bowman Small team set for the Dallas Texans. The card on the left is George Taliaferro and the card on the right is the rookie card for Gino Marchetti. Notice the Texans logo on the Marchetti card isn't included since he was a rookie. Marchetti was elected to the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1972.

George Taliaferro played 7 years as a pro and finished his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 1952 Football Bowman cards are one of my favorite sets. I really like the design and art. Hopefully I can find some at the National next month.
