Most of the cards in this set appear Excellent/Mint from the front, but have pretty significant paperloss on the back.  It looks as though at one point the cards in this set were glued into an album, and then subsequently removed.  That said, the front of the cards have very nice appeal but the storyline on the back is hard to read on a lot of the cards.  This is why we have decided to call the set Fair and have put such a big discount on it.  Please see the scans below for an accurate example of how the cards in this set grade.

 

Most of the cards in this set are fairly consistent in price, however some of the slightly more expensive cards include:

#1 King of the Wild Frontier: Fair

#2 Call to War: Fair

#51 Col. Crockett Reporting: Fair

#72 Every Shot Counts: Fair

#79 Russel Falls: Fair

#80 Bowie's Last Stand: Good
