1949 Bowman "America Salutes The FBI-Heroes of the Law" Complete Set (36)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,175

In the 1930s and 1940s, G-Men had their hands full fighting crime (heroic efforts that of course continue to this day). The many high-profile cases of the era were plastered across the front pages all across America, capturing the imaginations of youngsters and adults alike, providing positive real-life hero images for kids to look up to, and, of course, inspiring several trading-card sets. Presented is an exceptionally attractive high-grade complete thirty-six card set of 1949 Bowman "America Salutes The FBI-Heroes of the Law." This is a beautiful set of the all-time classics of nonsports-card collecting! 15% grade Nr/Mt (with a couple Nr/Mt-Mt), 45% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 45% Vg to Vg-Ex (all with a much stronger overall appearance than suggested by these technically accurate grades). This is an extremely attractive set of these very colorful and popular 1940s bubble-gum cards with across-the-board outstanding eye-appeal. The scarcity of this set is very much underrated by collectors, and the combination of the subject matter and the high-quality artwork makes this early Bowman issue one of the most appealing nonsport sets of any era. Total: 36 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,175
