    Description

    1950 Bowman Wild Man High Grade Complete Set (72). Offered is a 72-card complete set of "Wild Man" cards from 1950. Bowman struck a nerve with this enticing and masterfully rendered edition which must have both fascinated and scared the "heck" of kids in 1950's cold-war America. Not an easy set to complete, although only 72 cards in length, modern collectors have the more difficult high number run (#'s 36-72) to contend with. Thirty-seven cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 96 MINT 9: 7 cards, #'s 45, 48, 50, 53, 54, 62, 68; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 2 cards, #'s 51, 57; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 6 cards, #'s 3, 4, 25, 28, 63, 69; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 7 cards, #'s 2, 19, 29, 35, 41, 61, 65; SGC 84 NM 7: 13 cards, #'s 5, 7, 17, 27, 30, 32, 33, 39, 40, 46, 52, 56, 67; SGC 80 EX/MT 6: 2 cards, #'s 31, 43. Grades 58% NM to NM/MT, 42% EX to EX/MT (few lesser). SMR value exceeds $3,400.00

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
