    Description

    1941 R157 "Uncle Sam" Complete Set (96) and R158 "Home Defense" Near Set (19/24). The marketing dept. at Gum Inc. knew that the gum card would be an ideal propaganda tool to teach youngsters about the war that would soon be facing them. In times of complete uncertainty, the United States on the brink of entering World War II, these cards reminded Americans just how mighty our nation's military is. The Uncle Sam cards show each of the four branches of the military. Overall, 75 cards have been graded by SGC or PSA. Includes: 1941 R157 Uncle Sam (96) - Complete 1st Series of #'s 1-96.
