The offered 1949 Bowman Wild West complete set of (180) cards with duplicates carefully documents the triumph and tragedy of the Old West. This mid- to high-grade selection has a median grade of (EX) with some better and others lesser. Championed by mostly strong edges and borders, this set is degraded by scant instances of creases, wax stains and some centering issues. According to the authoritative non-sports publication The Wrapper, “These colorful cards measure 2-1/16 x 2-1/2". Of the 180 cards in the set, about half contain images of implied or graphic violence. Almost every gun had a fire blast or, at very least, a trail of smoke leaving its barrel. This isn't the lazy West with miles of boring desert. No sir. This is the EXCITING West with danger lurking behind every rock and cactus!” Also present are (106) lower-grade duplicates that mostly grade in the (VG) range.
