Q & A – How can I tell if this Yogi Berra 1948 Bowman #6 RC is real?

Question:  I have a Bowman 1948 Yogi Berra card #6. It does not say reprint, or RP. How can you tell the difference between a reprint and original??

Answer:  If the card is a reprint it probably would have a glossy finish to it.  Also, if the corners and edges are sharp and perfect it may be a reprint.  Reprinted card sometimes will have the copyright date written in small letters on the back, even under the reprinted copyright date.  If you want to send it in for certification I would use Beckett (BGS) and JSA.  They will let you know to be 100% sure.
