Extremely scarce collection of nineteen unopened one-cent wax packs from the “Jets, Rockets, and Spacemen” series issued by Bowman. Each pack contains one card and a piece of gum. The set features incredible science-fiction artwork illustrations of future space travel. When this set was issued, the miracle of space travel was still years away, but was very much on the minds of scientists, Bowman Gum, and young card collectors. These extraordinary packs look nearly exactly as they did when they were packaged by Bowman for sale in 1951. The packs are very tightly sealed, with light soiling and handling wear. World renowned unopened material expert Steve Hart of the Baseball Card Exchange has personally reviewed these packs, and they are 100% guaranteed unopened. Bowman's 1951 "Jets, Rockets, and Spacemen" series is one of the era's most popular nonsport bubble-gum card issues, making these rarely seen wax packs especially desirable. Total: 19 packs. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
