    Civil War News Trading Cards (Topps, 1962). The controversial 1962 Topps Civil War set sensationalizes the epic and defining event in American history, with lots of blood and gore. It's one of the most collected trading card sets of all-time. The 88-card set features art by Norman Saunders, with images that are considered to be fairly graphic even by today's standards. The original packs came with a replica piece of Confederate money -- one of 17 different bills, with denominations ranging from $1 to $1,000 (all of which are represented here!). The bills were folded in half to fit inside the packs, and shouldn't be considered damaged for creases down the middle, although the creases on these particular bills are almost indiscernible. An amazing set, in Excellent condition, with sharp corners, bright colors, and nice gloss.
