    Description

    1965 Philadelphia Gum "War Bulletin" High Grade Complete Set (88) Plus Display Box and Wrapper. This card set was issued by the Philadelphia Gum Co. in 1965. While Philly Gum was mainly known for football cards, they were a force in the non-sports arena as well. This set covered the critical events of World War II. By the measure of other non-sport issues, "War Bulletin" was not as widely collected as certain issues, ensuring that it is now a bit tougher to complete. The box presents NM with creases in top panel, the wrapper presents NM with anticipated fold lines. A total of 10 cards have been graded by PSA. Highlights include: Graded - PSA MINT 9: 5 cards, #'s 18, 22, 40, 49 and 65; PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 2 cards, #'s 10 and 52; PSA NM-MT 8: 3 cards, #'s 2, 64 and 86. Grades 83% NM to NM/MT, 17% EX to EX/MT (few lesser).

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