#5 - 1955 Bowman

I wanted this to be all about Roy Campanella, but I just could not leave the other cards I have from this set behind.  What a creative design from Bowman this time.  A color television set, with images of the players and the name.  Each picture is more like a portrait because of the drawings used instead of photos.  At this point, they are still 2 years away from using photos on cards.   I like how the name on the image comes across like a graphic you would see on the screen.  Everybody's eyes stand out so much on the cards.  Podres looks like he is staring right through you.

Another interesting part of this set is that they actually have umpire cards too.  They are very rare in good condition and highly collectible.

So which of these cards do you like the best?
