The critically acclaimed 1938 Gum Inc. Horrors of War set was so popular that a May 1938 Life Magazine issue ran a feature story on the vivid trading cards. The controversial imagery along with the informative biographies have made this one-time issue a mainstay atop many collectors want lists. This sterling 1938 Gum Inc. Horrors of War complete set of (288) cards is “a must” for the advanced non-sport enthusiast. Highlighted among this mid-grade edition are Low Numbers: (#1-192, average VG to VG-EX) with #1 Marco Polo Bridge (trimmed); High Numbers: (#193-288, median VG, couple of instances of paper loss or writing, presents much nicer than commonly offered) with #240 Frightful Cost (GD), #277 Hitler’s Border Tour (GD), #283 Hitler Threatens Force (VG), #284 Germany’s Amazing Mobile (VG), #286 Chamberlain Meets Hitler (VG) and #288 Czech President Surrenders (VG).
