    1938 R55 Gumakers "Frank Buck" Complete Set (48). Frank Buck was a noted 20th Century adventurer who's motto was "Bring 'Em Back Alive." With no decoration to speak of, the quality illustrations are left unobscured, leaving every action scene involving lions, tigers, elephants, snakes and a multitude of wild species from some exotic local. This is a rare chance to acquire a complete 48-card homage to the man who lived the life every little boy who resided in an urban jungle dreamt of. A total of 10 cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: #'s 9 (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 11 (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 14 (SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5), 16 (SGC 84 NM 7), 19 (SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5), 20 (SGC 88 NM/MT 8), 28 (SGC 60 EX 5), 35 (SGC 70 EX+ 5.5), 37 (SGC 80 EX/NM 6), 41 (SGC 88 NM/MT 8).
