1953 Bowman Frontier Days trading cards tell the story of the wild west with 128 cards featuring action packed artwork.

The artwork for this set was borrowed from the 1949 Bowman Wild West series, though that set contained 52 more cards than Frontier Days. To accommodate for the differing dimensions of the two sets, Frontier Days include a wider border on the short ends of the cards which is filled in with a relevant line drawing — guns, bow and arrows, rope, etc.

The recycling of artwork from an earlier set not yet five years old is usually believed to be a last ditch effort to earn revenue by releasing a set with minimal overhead costs. Bowman would be bought out by Topps just two years later.

Hero Habit may earn a small commission on qualifying purchases when you use an outbound link to eBay, Funko, Entertainment Earth, Topps, BAM or click any ad served by Google. This helps us maintain, update and expand Hero Habit and does not get passed on as a charge to you. Thank you!
