1950 Bowman Wild Man trading cards are a charming set that illustrates the history of man’s murderous tendencies. Beginning with the first murder as told in the Bible and culminating in a hypothetical war between the planets, this set features beautiful artwork despite its dour subject matter.

In an attempt to be an educational tool for the children of the early 1950s, each card back included the caption “Man’s past is stained with blood; His future can be bright with promise — if in the present he will wage peace”. That line was directly underneath a graphic retelling of the murder depicted on the card front.

The set was released in two series. Series 1 consists of cards 1-36, Series 2 consists of cards 37-72.

As with many sets of this era, centering is a huge issue when it comes to finding high quality cards from this collection.
