Description1950 Bowman "Wild Man" Partial Set (48/72). Offered is a 48-card partial 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. There are 12 High numbers included. Grades 15% EX to EX/MT, 60% VG to VG/EX, 25% PR to GD.
Guide Value or Estimate: $400 - up.

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
