What's the difference between these two? They look identical, and there's only a $50 price difference. They're from a reputable seller outta town, so I can't try em out in person.

Basically, they are the same amp. The "50" addendum was tacked onto the original designation to differentiate it from the Bassman 100 that appeared in Fender's amp line-up coincident with the name change. When the Bassman 50 was re-designed as an ultra-linear platform in late 1977, the front panel changed again to "Bassman 70" (you'll never actually see 70 watts out of one but that story is beyond the scope of your question).
