I found this Curt Simmons baseball card on the cheap (less than $10) over at Checkoutmycards a few months ago.  As of this writing, it's my first and only '49 Bowman card and I really like how Bowman took a black and white photo and added color highlights to Simmons' hat and uniform.  One of the coolest things about adding these older cards to my collection is that I've never even seen pictures of most of these cards.  There's a whopping 19 Phillies cards in the '49 Bowman set, and eight of these cards are in the elusive high series (cards 145-240), so they'll be even tougher to track down.
