1968 Topps A & BC "Superman in the Jungle" Complete Set (66): #5 PSA Set Registry!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $720

Exceptionally attractive complete set of "Superman in the Jungle" produced by A & BC Company in 1968 and featuring illustrated full-color scenes of Superman and his adventures. The A & BC Company was a British manufacturer licensed by Topps to produce and distribute cards in England. Many of the company's sets are actually identical in design to American Topps sets, but are smaller and in several cases are actually scarcer than their American counterparts. The American version of the "Superman in the Jungle" series was issued by Topps in the United States on a test basis in advance of the A & BC issue; we offer here (noted again to be sure to avoid any confusion!) the A & BC Company set that was issued in England. (The American version of the set is extremely rare and ranks among the most sought-after and hard-to-find nonsport cards of the era.) The offered set is complete at sixty-six cards and is entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA, with the exception of three cards (#s 6, 12, and 62). The set ranks fifth on the PSA Set Registry with a 6.55 overall GPA. PSA Grading Composite: MINT 9 (4 cards): #5 (OC), 7 (OC), 57, and 58 (OC). NM-MT+ 8.5 (1 card): #50. NM-MT 8 (9 cards): #2, 3, 8 (OC), 14 (OC), 17, 30, 40 (OC), 49 (OC), and 60. NM+ 7.5 (2 cards): #39 and 44. NM 7 (16 cards): #1, 4, 11, 13, 15, 19, 22, 23, 25, 32, 42, 43, 53, 54, 56, and 65. EX-MT+ 6.5 (2 cards): #9 and 52. EX-MT 6 (19 cards): #10, 16, 18, 20, 21, 24, 33, 36, 37, 45, 47, 48, 51, 55, 59, 61, 63, 64, and 66. EX 5 (10 cards): #26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 34, 35, 38, 41, and 46. All cards are bright and crisp. This is a superb complete set of this scarce A & BC Company issue, worthy of even the most advanced nonsport-card collection. Total: 66 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $720
