1948 Bowman #3

Featured Card: 1948 Bowman #3. I’m not sure if this card is unusually rare or if I’m just looking at the wrong time, but there are no copies of this card available on eBay. There are other vintage Lujacks (1950 Bowman, 1955 Topps All Americans) listed with prices generally in the $50 ballpark while a few highly graded cards are asking for upwards of $924 (a 1951 Bowman PSA 9).
