Presented is a 59-card near set of Topps Test "Superman in the Jungle" non-sports cards issued in the late 1960s. Produced on an extremely limited basis, these cards are difficult to acquire. Collectors who aspire to complete their Superman collections by adding these impossible-to-find images are inevitably forced to settle for the British "A. & B. C. Gum Co." smaller-sized counterpart—admittedly a poor substitute, but the only option available. Fully printed examples from the challenging U.S.-origin series, such as these, prove to be a daunting undertaking for most collectors. We believe this is the largest offering of these relics to be offered at public auction. Missing #'s 6, 7, 11, 14, 18, 43 and 48 for completion. Grades 44% EX to EX/MT, 56% VG to VG/EX (few lesser). "Finished" Superman In The Jungle test cards like these, with both front and back designs in place, are very infrequently seen or offered in the industry! To the best of our knowledge, no complete set is known. Also included is a tan-backed variation (#1, VG). Total: 60 cards.
