Each card has been graded by PSA. Presented is a 103-card 1950-51 Topps "Freedom's War" partial set. In the dawn of the gum makers' lengthy history in marketing trading cards with confectionery products, Topps concocted an exciting theme for a proposed card creation in 1950: the United States Armed Forces. The military, with its heroic warriors and mighty machinery, held immeasurable fascination for the series' intended demographic of young boys with allowances to spend. And the manufacturer worked hard to deliver a series of irresistible designs. A variety of combat disciplines, nicely representing diverse content, is reflected in their phenomenal character illustrating the care that was expended in the issue's planning and composing. Card #'s 1 - 96 are all the uncaptioned variety, and are a mixture of tan and gray backs. Card #'s 97 - 203 are mostly tan backs.
