Description

Card imagery and production have come a long way since Bowman issued their Jets, Rockets and Spacemen Gum series in 1951. Presented is the original artwork for card #34 “Cutlass” from the set. This finished, colorful work received a nice placement of paints that fully covered the basic pencil designs used to create card designs. The artwork is very appealing, and the protective film overlay is present. The original captioning for the piece, which was edited and shortened for the card version, is taped to the inside of the overlay. The original painting measures 8-15/16 x 7-1/8, and the issued card (VG-EX) is also included. This is a one-of-a-kind item from a very popular series and should not be passed over.
