Includes: 1933 R174 Goudey "World War Gum" - With tensions in Europe high and the whisper of war coming over the horizon Goudey reintroduced WWI scenes and events to youngsters via this 96-card production under the name "World War Gum." The set is built as two series, identified by their tan (#'s 1-48) or orange (#'s 49-96) border treatment; and 1941 R157 Gum Inc. Uncle Sam - The marketing dept. at Gum Inc. knew that the gum card would be an ideal propaganda tool aimed at youngsters to bring the war that they would soon be facing to a personal level. At a time of complete uncertainty, the United States was on the brink of entering World War II and these cards help remind Americans just how mighty our nation's military is. Neither wrapper has any tears or holes and present at the excellent level. Standard folds as issued.
