About this set: Back in 1962 when Topps released this 88-card set, they probably did not realize that they were creating a classic in the non-sports arena. Through his creativity, the legendary artist Norm Saunders designed each card to be a masterpiece depicting individual events during the Civil War. Anyone who collects this set is drawn to it for a number of different reasons: The graphic and gruesome artwork, the subject matter of the War Between the States, the backs of the cards which were designed like newspapers and tells the cards story, and last but not least, those fond childhood memories of collecting and trading these cards, along with the Confederate currency which came in every pack. The 1962 Topps Civil War News cards are an all-around classic set of non-sports cards, and that is why they are very popular, and so avidly collected.
