Antique Autos


Bowman Gum - 1953
48 card set depicting antique automobiles and early racing cars.  Card fronts have color drawings with the automobile model name in hand-lettering. Card backs have short text giving the card number and set name, card title and a paragraph about the automobile pictured.  Most of the card back consisted of a second image of the automobile in red and blue 3D anaglyph format, to be viewed with glasses offered by retailers.  Six pairs of glasses were packed in each box and retailers were encouraged to give a pair to anyone who purchased at least four packs of cards at one time.
Artwork was "borrowed" from the 50 card T37 Turkey Red Automobile Series by American Tobacco Company that was issued in 1910 and reveal finer detail and more elaborate artwork than the Bowman issue.
