    1960's Non-Sports Military Theme Wax Pack Wrappers Collection (35). Offered is a collection of twenty-nine non-sports wrappers/decoder sheets from five popular 1960's releases. The collection includes: 1964 Donruss Combat - The 1960's was a thriving era for trading cards which were associated with Hollywood movies and network television shows. "Combat" was a popular series for ABC which aired from 1962 through 1967. The series starred Vic Morrow as Sergeant Saunders and Rick Jason as Lieutenant Hanley. The popularity of the show motivated Donruss to produce two different series in 1964. Offered is a collection of seven wax pack wrappers; 1964 Philadelphia Green Berets - 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. Offered is a collection of twenty-one wax pack wrappers; 1967 Leaf Garrison's Gorillas - "Garrison's Gorillas" was influenced by the 1967 film The Dirty Dozen, the classic film featuring Allied prisoners training for World War II military missions. The T.V. series ran over the course of two years, with 26 hour long episodes. Offered is a collection of seven wax pack wrappers. With a small percentage of exceptions, wrappers present at the EX to EX/MT range.
