Description

    1938 R69 Gum Inc Horrors of War Complete Set (288) Plus Five Scarce Prize/Promo Backs. One of the most popular non-sport sets in the hobby. This edition was an ingenious vehicle to bring war propaganda to an impressionable young generation... all neatly wrapped in wax paper with a sugary piece of gum. The set is by for the most graphic and violent filled productions ever with a few appearances by Adolf Hitler to top off the fun. The images are gruesome and colorful but the history behind them is all too real. This presentation grade 90% VG to VG/EX with some a little nicer, 10% FR to GD with a few cards being cut small. Overall, the registration are above average for this set. The "key" cards include: #'s 1 Marco Polo Bridge... (VG/EX, printer ink splash), 240 The Frightful Cost of War (FR), 277 Hitler's Border Tour... (VG/EX), 283 Hitler Threatens Force... (GD/VG), 284 (VG/EX), 285 (VG/EX) and 286 Chamberlain Meets Hitler... (VG/EX). As a bonus, there are a trio of cards which have the very scarce overprint stamp for a free pack of cards plus two that advertise the 240-card set.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.
