1950 Bowman wrappers are tough to find. None on eBay now and none in closed auctions. Don't write off the wrapper collectors either. I would think clean wrapper would be $300 or more.

that one in pic has some dirt, but yes, that is where the money may be. Id say the cards would have some gum issues, etc so that's a crapshoot

I am also interested in a "loose" unopened pack. If you open them all, you will have 15 wrappers and 15 most likely damaged cards in some way shape or form.
I would not be interested at all in the wrapper and just a card but if you leave them "as is", you have something that most people in the hobby can only dream of!

Let me know! Thanks! Mike

It's a seriously rare wrapper. Only one on worthpoint past sales history and it sold in 2007.

https://www.worthpoint.com/worthoped...x-pack-wrapper

btw it sold for $141.72 and that was 10 years ago. Tom B might be right, it could be a $300 wrapper today.

I still wouldn't unwrap them though.

The owner is looking for 500.00/pack. If you are interested at that price point let me know. I know it is steep but it is still quite a unique and valuable piece of history.

Did these "packs" sell at $500? As others have indicated, the money here is just in the wrapper; the card is probably ruined from the looks of the wrapper. But I would be interested if the seller has figured out that $500 is just too high. I would buy them all if the price has gone down substantially. If they found any other really unopened packs, my interest grows. Best regards,

Steve -

The wrappers are not in that much demand based on recent sale, no where near 300.00 as thought here. 500.00 is the asking price. Still a rare find

Thanks David, I appreciate your response, and I agree they are a rare find. If all of them were sealed like the auctioned ones, they would sell similarly. I consider them attractive and still desirable, but not as an unopened pack. Yes, there is a limited market for rare and tough to find wrappers, but that is the market that these appeal to. They would pay more to get the wrapper and one card, but $500 may not appeal to more than a few collectors. If the seller wants to move them all, contact me again. Otherwise, thanks again and best wishes.
