American Civil War Trading Cards

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

These were notorious for their violent illustrations, including impalements on bayonets and crushings under gun wheels, parapets of dead and bloodied wounded, they were collectable bubblegum cards of the mid-late 1960s by Topps. Rather more extreme than the Monkees trading cards you could get around the same time!

    I still have the full set of cards (including 'The Check list') and yes there were some horrific depictions of violence, death and bloodshed. I even have a full set of the CSA Dollar bills in A1 condition.

    World War II cards were also popular in the late-1960s, and they included scenes of torture by Japanese and plenty of bloodshed.
