Bob Lemke spent 30 years in sportscards publishing, as an editor and graphics artist. He conceived the notion of creating fantasy nonsports cards which would replicate the look and feel of actual 1950s Topps series, but would add subject matter notoriously missing from the original. Bob issued dozens of these cards, which, because of his skills, are virtually indistinguishable from the appearance of the original issue. Sadly, Bob died several years ago, but his spectacular contribution to the hobby lives after him. You can still visit his blog at

We all know that the 1961 Topps “Civil War News” series ended at card #88, but this lot contains card #89, one of Bob’s creations. It features a scene from the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. Perfect centering, NM-MT grade, and oh so much fun!
