1951 Bowman Red Menace Complete Set (48)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $4,350.00

One of the most popular and colorful trading card sets of the post-WW II era, Bowman Gum's "Red Menace" set was produced during the heart of the Cold War, and captures the political spirit of the times. This complete set of 48 cards (44 tan backs and 4 gray backs) ranges in grade from Ex to Nr/Mt (averaging Ex-Mt), with the exception of five cards which range from Vg to Vg-Ex. Keys: #1 "Reds Invade South Korea" (Ex), #19 "Atomic Doom" (Ex-Mt), #23 "Ghost City" (Vg), and #47 "War-Maker" (Ex). A very attractive, crisp, clean, overall high grade set of this classic, and extremely historically significant, 1950s non-sport issue. The set is accompanied by an original wrapper which is in Vg-Ex condition. Total 48 cards plus one wrapper. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
