This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Presented is a 1965 Bettman "Civil War Pictures" 55-card complete set. Much scarcer than the commonly seen 1962 Topps "Civil War News" issue, this 55 card set is comprised of striking pinkish-toned photos & illustrations (Lincoln, Davis, Grant, Lee, battle scenes, etc.) on the front and detailed Civil War text on the reverse. Presents mostly at the EX/MT to NM level, however, many of the cards have the extreme off-centering and diamond cuts that are typical of this issue (we've never seen a well-centered set).
