1950 Topps Freedom's War
Shortly after the end of World War II, Topps issued their 1950 Topps Freedom’s War set. The 203 card set features Korean War scenes as well as depictions of combat training, military insignia, weapons, medals, generals (card #210 depicts General Dwight D. Eisenhower), airplanes, battleships, and a set of Die Cut tanks. The 1950 Topps Freedom’s War set was distributed in three printings over a period of two years. The die cut tank cards however, were done away with after the first printing, thus they tend to be scarcer.
