#8151 - 1962 Topps Civil War News Set - Completely Graded by PSA (GPA rating 8.33) Estimate: $4,000+

Offered is an extremely high grade 1962 Topps Civil War News completely PSA-graded set, which is ranked as the No. 12 current finest set with a GPA rating of 8.33.

Due to the graphic nature of the artwork, and the historical content of the subject matter, this set remains one of the most popular of all non-sports sets. With artwork drawn by the famous Norm Saunders, who also illustrated the equally popular 1959 Mars Attacks set, many of the Civil War News illustrations are morbidly vivid, bloody, and very disturbing, with soldiers on both sides being impaled, blasted by cannons, crushed by wheels, and burned alive. The word death appears 14 times in the various Civil War News 'headlines.' This set is very high grade, ranking as the No. 12 Current Finest set with a set rating, and overall GPA of 8.33. The set contains 26 PSA MINT 9 cards, with the balance of the set being razor sharp PSA NM-MT 8 beauties, including the coveted first (The Angry Man) and last (Checklist) cards.

Includes: PSA MINT 9 - 26 cards with #3, 5, 6, 13, 14, 16, 19, 20, 26, 28, 37, 39 General Lee, 42, 48, 50, 51, 52, 68, 69, 71, 76, 79 Council of War (Lincoln/Grant), 82, 83, 84, and 86.

PSA NM-MT 8 - 62 cards with #1 The Angry Man, 2 President Jeff Davis, 4, 7, 8-12, 15, 17, 18, 21-25, 27, 29-36, 38 General Grant, 40, 41, 43-47, 49, 53-67, 70, 72-75, 77, 78, 80, 81, 85, 87, and 88 Checklist.
