Added -- Bowman Superman set -- Ralph Perry posted
he purchased them in the area around Shanghai.
The seller sold a few cards in groups of four on Ebay
Nothing more is known of the set.

Possibly a newspapers.com member will find something.

A link in the Gallery Uncat area is on my TO-BE-DONE list.

A Hake's auction in 2015 had a shipping case for the Bowman's Superman set with many pictures. Winner paid $12,524.76 including a 15% Buyer's Premium.


It is interesting that the box says "Bowman's Superman" on 2 sides and "Gum Incorporated" on the other 2 sides. Does anyone know what year they changed from Gum Inc to Bowman?

Also, the top of the box is stamped with the name of a company in Cleveland, Ohio - The retailer or a distributor?


Here's a link:

Yes, the Bowman Superman set was a different set than pictured in the box, wasn't it?  Isn't that box for R145?
