Description

    1967 Philadelphia Gum "Green Berets" Complete Set (66) Plus Wrapper. Following in the well-established tradition of early card sets like "Uncle Sam" and capitalizing on Sgt. Barry Sadler's smash hit 1966 recording of "The Ballad of the Green Berets," PGC released this cardstock tribute to America's elite Special Forces group. The set's black and white imagery was largely taken from the U. S. Army's publicity and training photos, and it is a good guess that much of the back text explaining each image came from similar sources. This is a screamer of a set, beautifully high grade with exceptional centering and accompanied by a sharp example of PGC's attractive product wrapper. Card #1 is graded PSA NM-MT 8. Set Grades NM or better, the few lesser are EX/MT and are simply due to centering.
