Jets, Rockets, Spacemen
  Bowman - 1951
  Reprinted and extended in 1985 by WTW Productions

Notes: This series features colorful artwork on card fronts and descriptions 
on card backs. Originally planned as a 180-card series, the artwork for cards 
109-144 was "lost.  Cards 145-180 were retrieved and reprinted in the 1980s. 
The cards were printed in three 36-card batches, with cards 37-72 somewhat 
more scarce than the other numbers. Thanks much to Dennis Skowronski for 
the original checklist and to Uschi Lohnes for the "extension" list! Uschi points 
out that cards 164-167 and 170 look like pencil sketches, so it is possible that
these cards were partially reconstructed from incomplete surviving material. 
Card size is approximately 3-1/8" x 2-1/8: Eugene White (thanks!) notes that 
the 145-180 extension cards were printed on a grey card stock instead of the 
white stock of the initial set, and the copyright line is "James E. Trever, Paul 
Koch, G.C.S." instead of WTW Productions. Card 145 has a stamped sequence 
number, hinting that a defined number of extension sets were produced.

American Card Catalog reference is R701-13. Scans are posted at the Vintage 
Non-Sports Cards gallery.
