Extremely substantial collection of 117 mid-grade 1938 R69 "Horrors of War" cards (106 different of the 288 in the set), each graded and encapsulated by PSA. Issued by Gum, Inc., “Horrors of War” is perhaps the single most famous nonsport-card set ever issued. The exceptionally colorful graphics and politically charged descriptions on their reverses also made this series one of the most controversial sets ever issued. The PSA grades are as follows: EX-MT 6 (2 cards): #115 (MC) and 220. EX+ 5.5 (2 cards): #161 and 162. EX 5 (23 cards): #11, 77, 82, 90, 92, 94, 123, 135, 143, 183, two 187, 214, 219, 225, two 226, 228, 231, 237, 238, 239, and 254. VG-EX+ 4.5 (1 card): #143. VG-EX 4 (59 cards): #8, 13, 19, 50, 51, 64, 74, 75, 77, 83, 84, 85, 95, 101, 106, 112, 114, 115, 116, 122, 126, 128, 133, 136 (MC), 138, 139, 140, 141 (MC), 144, 148, 150, 152, 157, 171, 172, 174, 179, 181, 183, 186, 189, 191, 192, 201 (MK), 203, 211, 218, 221, 222, 223, 224, 227, 229, 230, 234, 254, 261, 267, and 280 (MC). VG+ 3.5 (1 card): #105. VG 3 (23 cards): #1, 11, 12, 37, 57, 66, 69, 71, 98, 99, 119, 121, 154, 158, 162, 168, 173, 177, 189, 198 (MK), 247, 263, and 274. GOOD 2 (6 cards): #30, 56, 161, 256, 265, and 275. This is a very attractive group, representing an extraordinary foundation for the assembly of a complete PSA-graded set, and worthy of inclusion in any nonsport-card collection. The total SMR value for eighty-two of the 117 cards in the group (not including the qualified cards or the cards graded less than VG-EX 4) is $1,747. Total: 117 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
