    Description

    Civil War News Trading Card Set (Topps, 1965). Civil War News is a 1965 collector card series from Topps containing 88 cards. All 88 cards are here in this group. Each card has a color printing of a battle or historical event from the Civil War period, which is captioned in a white box set inside the picture area. The backs are gray with a red-brown border; the card number is located in this border at the bottom corner on the right side. The text is arranged in newspaper fashion. A piece of facsimile Confederate currency was folded into every pack (17 different bills were available, but none come with this set). The cards average Very Fine condition, with several showing very minor edge and corner wear. We've seen these sets recently sell for up to $1,000! From the George Simpson Collection.
