Description

Presented is a collection of war-themed trading cards that depict graphic images and illustrations of brave marines, death-defying dogfights and depressing tragedies. These pre-war, World War II and Cold War era cards include (49) 1938 R1 Action Gum with 8 duplicates (mostly FR with some better or lesser), (34) 1942 Gum Inc. War Gum with (1) duplicate (mostly FR), (29) 1951 Bowman Red Menace with 4 duplicates (mostly VG-EX to EX) and a 1953 Topps Fighting Marines Series 1 Complete Set (48) (mostly EX with some better or lesser). Military trading cards are some of the most popular non-sport issues amongst collectors, and this collection offers great insight into America's military history and propaganda in the mid-twentieth century.
