No set typifies the 1930's gum card offerings of war, grit and strife more than the R69 Horrors of War set by Gum, Inc of Philadelphia. Issued in 1938, before the United States had entered WWII, the set was printed on sheets of 24 cards with 10 sheets making up the base low number offering. Two sheets or 48 cards made up the high number section for a total of 288 cards. The cards pictured all manner of unspeakable acts from the beginnings of WWII perpetrated by those who would be come the Axis powers of the war. The set was extremely popular as witnessed by an article about it in the May 6, 1938 edition of Life magazine which pictures artwork from a number of cards.

This lot of (3) R69 Gum Inc Horrors of War cards includes the following subjects: #70 Subway Blast Kills Madrid Civilians (PSA6 EX-MT), #84 Tokio Marines Take Tsingtao Without a Fight (PSA6 EX-MT) and #134 Loyalist Air Raid at Majorca (PSA6 EX-MT). Great group of these very clean cards for the set builder.
