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

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $474

The entire 36-card set of 1949 Bowman "America Salutes The FBI-Heroes of the Law" is presented here in its rarest and most ideal form: a single uncut sheet. As tough as these cards are to find as a complete set, it is even rarer to find them in sheet form. This is only the second such sheet we have ever handled and we cannot imagine that there are more than a few in existence. This is a complete final process sheet with fully printed backs. The sheet presents as Excellent or better with evidence of a slight, unobtrusive trim along the left edge and almost all of the technical flaws relegated to the bottom two rows (light staining, a tear emanating from the left border inward, and light wrinkling). One of the cards in the second row from the bottom has a piece of tape affixed to the reverse. The sheet is otherwise almost entirely clean, front and back, with brilliant colors. Ideal for framing and spectacular for display. Dimensions: 10 x 18.75 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $474
