    1962 Topps Civil Wars News Art Layout Proof & Final Card Pairs (30 Different). It's been said that "necessity is the mother of invention." Well sometimes needs are fulfilled with just a quick flip. Offered is a gallery of 1962 Topps "Civil War News" collectibles including thirty original full-frame, full-bleed, blank back art layout proofs originally envisioned by the artist paired with the final as issued card. In each instance, Topps simply "flipped" the scene giving collectors the final circulated card. Four cards are graded by SGC. Includes are layout proofs (all encapsulated by SGC) and cards for #'s 4, 7, 9, 14, 15, 18, 20, 24, 27, 28, 30, 32, 35, 37, 43, 46, 49, 54, 59, 62, 63, 66, 67, 70, 74, 76, 80, 82, 83 and 86. Graded Cards are #'s 4 (SGC 88 NM/MT 8), 32 (SG 84 NM 7), 37 (SGC 70 EX+ 5.5) and 82 (SGC 86 NM+ 7.5). Cards are all "pack fresh" and grade EX to NM (all due to centering) with a few miscut. Heritage has had the opportunity to offer these rare collectible for two other cards in the past. To acquire such a quantity from this classic series may not ever present itself again.
