Presented is a 203-card 1950-51 Topps "Freedom's War" complete 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. Card #'s 1 - 96 are all the uncaptioned variety, and have tan backs. Card #'s 97 - 203 are all tan backs. The seven tanks are all die-cut. Highlights include: #'s 1 (FR), 57 MacArthur (VG/EX), 97 Tank M-7 (VG), 98 Tank M10A1 (GD), 99 Tank M-8 (GD), 100 Tank M-26 (GD), 101 Tank M-18 (VG), 102 Tank M-12 (FR), 103 Tank M-5 (GD), 183 Patton (VG), 201 Eisenhower (EX) and 203 (VG). Grades 41% EX to EX/MT with a few nicer, 53% VG to VG/EX, 6% lesser.
