1955 Bowman Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

1955 Bowman Baseball features 320 cards and a now iconic design that capitalizes on the newest fad to hit America – the television.

Beyond the standard baseball players featured in this set, a set of umpires is also included towards the end of the checklist. Four of those umpires are enshrined in the Hall of Fame (Barlick, Chylak, Conian, and Hubbard).

The design was used as a part of the 2016 Topps Throwback Thursday set.

Our checklist is separated by team. You may scroll through the entire list or jump straight to your favorite team by choosing them from the list below. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
