    Description

    1965 A&BC Gum "Civil War News" Complete Set (88). Modification to catalog copy reflected in italicized text below:

    Issued a few years following the Topps version which appeared in the US. A&BC Gum (Topps' overseas brand name) circulated this edition which was essentially a reissue of the original release, simply adjusted for the standard British card size of 3-1/8" x 2-1/4." This variety is considerably more difficult to obtain, particularly in higher grade levels. In total, 13 cards have been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded Cards - PSA MINT 9: 2 cards w/#'s 5 and 33; PSA NM-MT 8: 6 cards w/#'s 6, 10, 11, 13, 37 and 76; PSA NM+ 7.5: 1 card, #74; PSA NM 7: 1 card, #84; PSA EX 5: 3 cards w/#'s 14, 44 and 53; Ungraded Cards - Including: #88 (EX/MT). Overall, the set grades 22% NM to NM-MT, 73% EX to EX/MT (some due to centering), 5% VG/EX due to centering.

    Addendum to catalog description: card #1 "The Angry Man" (VG/EX).
