This lot features the popular 1962 Topps Civil War News set consisting of 88 cards, each of which has been professionally graded by PSA. The cards range in grade from Good-NMT/MT with most falling in the EX range. 1962 Topps Civil War News takes a bloody and, many would argue, sensationalized look at one of the defining events in American history. The set remains one of the most collected trading card sets of all-time, commanding continued attention on the secondary market. The 88-card set features highly detailed artwork. It was a collaborative effort that had contributions from several artists, most notably of which was Norman Saunders. The images hold back very little, portraying lots of blood and gore. Controversial even today, it took a similar tone to the equally popular 1938 Gum Inc. Horrors of War release. 1962 Topps Civil War News card fronts are dominated by the detailed painting. A caption is in a white rectangular box at the bottom of the card. Backs are designed like a newspaper, telling the story of the Civil War (or at least one take on it) with detailed write-ups. Packs also come with a replica piece of Confederate money. This lot includes 24 bills with denominations ranging from $1 to $1,000. These bills were folded in half to fit inside packs. Therefore they shouldn't be considered damaged for a crease down the middle. The combination of compelling subject matter, memorable tone and classic artwork have helped make 1962 Topps Civil War News one of the most popular trading card sets ever. Today, singles still move briskly as collectors look to build their sets. Unmarked checklists are particularly rare and command a significant premium over other cards in the set.
