Hi all, I just received my first SGC submission back from SGC. Right on time, it was a 20 day order.

I sent 3 1950 Bowman Wild West cards. The grades were a 45, a 60 and an 80.

I also sent 12 1950 Ed-U-Cards Lone Ranger. The grades ranged from 30 to 70.

I am not unhappy with the grades. Of course I wished some had been better, but it seems these are very tough cards to find in higher grades. One of the Bowman's was number A-28 Ambush. It was graded 45 VG+, the colors on the front are still very pretty. Plus, between what I paid for the raw cards plus the grading, I feel I'm not overpaying.

So, I hope we can get a nice forum going on non-sports cards. While I love baseball cards, I'm really looking forward to completing some Western non-sports sets also. I'll try to scan some of the fronts for posting on here in the next few days.

Thanks Blackie. What surprised me is normally I'm a top graded buyer, but these cards are still pretty in the low grades. This one is a good example, it only graded a 45 VG+, but the color on the front is still gorgeous. Hopefully I will scan the other 2 I have tomorrow.

Consider the 1933-40 Indian Gum cards, 216 different subjects and lots of variations. I've been working on it for years and not even half way done.

rgold, those are gorgeous. I would like to do that set, but like you said, it's a big one. Please keep posting pics, I know I will love to look at them. I've got some 1950 ED-U-Cards Lone Rangers to scan and I'll try to post some.

Maybe I ought to explain why I like these sets. 2 reasons, first, I like the west. Second, I used to be a pressman in a small print shop. For the technology in use when these were printed, I can't believe how beautiful they are, even in lower grades like mine. I hope we can both keep posting, and I'm going to check out your site.
