This set currently ranks fourth on PSA's Set Registry with an overall GPA of 4.98. These colorful cards were designed, according to the original wax wrapper (not included here, but sold by REA in a past auction), to "kindle a deeper sense of Patriotism by portraying the Ideals and Principles on which our Country is founded."
