1950 Bowman Wild West Complete Set (180)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $4,930.00
Copyrighted in 1949, released to the public in 1950, this complete set of "Wild West" cards features some of the finest artwork of any Bowman production. The set is organized into eight separate series (A through H), each with a different theme relating to the Old West: "Winning the West," "Indian Costumes," "Famous Characters," "Indian Warfare," "Cowboy Life," "Law and Order," "River Days," and "Western Stars." This attractive set, with 53% ranging from Ex to Ex-Mt, and 47% grading Vg to Vg-Ex/Ex (averaging Vg-Ex), looks much nicer than its technically accurate grading might suggest. Bright, clean, and crisp, with no creases, just a little (mostly minor) corner wear on cards graded less than Ex. The set is accompanied by an original wrapper (Ex-Mt). Total 180 cards plus one wrapper. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $4,930.00
