Reminiscent of the 1948 Bowman baseball and football issues, the Bowman "Movie Stars" set is a black-and-white photographic issue featuring film stars "selected by 'Photoplay' - America's Favorite Screen Magazine."  Each card includes a portrait image on the front, along with basical biographical info on the reverse.  This is an exceptionally attractive set, the majority of the cards falling in the EX-MT range with some better and a few lesser.  Those lesser-grade cards fall into the EX or VG/EX range due solely to corners and centering, as the image quality of each card is excellent, and the set is crease-free.  A tremendous complete set.  36 cards total.

NOTE: Several customers have asked specific questions about the printing on the reverse.  It should be noted that all the cards have BLUE printing on the reverse, except:

BLACK print on back:
#3 Paul Lees
#5 Margaret Field
#6 Monte Hale
#11 Carolyn Butler
#20 Marta Toren
#19 Helena Carter
BLACK print on gray cardboard:
#8 Jean Ruth
#14 Roberta Jonay
#32 Frances Gifford
#34 Lloyd Nolan
