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.

I just received the 1948 (sometimes called 1949 Leaf) Ennis card from an eBay purchase and came her to see what other ones I needed. After looking up each of them on eBay, I think you can safely remove Emil "Dutch" Leonard and Harry "The Hat" Walker from your wantlist. Look at the cards on eBay. The fronts both show them as Cubs, and the backs both list them as Cubs, with the text of each saying that they were recently traded there (two separate trades, about a month or two apart, by the way). I have deleted both from my own wantlist.
