1949 Bowman Wild West trading cards were a massive hit for the gum company and would be one of its best selling sets to date. The 180 card set is broken up into eight subsections all with a different alpha prefix.

  • A – Winning The West
  • B – Indian Customs
  • C – Famous Characters
  • D – Indian Warfare
  • E – Cowboy Life
  • F – Law and Order
  • G – River Days
  • H – Western Stars

Bowman reissued 128 cards from this set in 1953 under the title “Frontier Days”. The differing dimensions of the reissue required a “western” border so modern collectors are unlikely to confuse the two sets.
