In 1938 Gum Inc. issued one of the most famous Gum Card sets of all time when they came out with their 1938 Horrors of War collection. The original 1938 Horrors of War set consisted of 240 cards that illustrated and gave history regarding the Chinese-Japanese War, the Ethiopian War, as well as the Spanish Civil War.

The set became so popular that Gum Inc. decided to add to it, an additional 48 cards depicting the violence in Germany and the start of World War II. Despite the success the first 240 cards in the set achieved, the 48 additional cards never became as popular as the original.  The final cards in the set however, prove to be some of the most expensive. 

The cards in this set vary in grade from Poor to Good, but the majority grade Fair.  That said, the low grade of the cards does keep the cost of the set down, as this set would cost tens of thousands to complete in Near Mint condition. 

The following cards are included in this 277 card set:

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30,31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, 125, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150, 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, 156, 157, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168, 169, 170, 171, 172, 173, 174, 175, 176, 177, 178, 179, 180, 181, 182, 183, 184, 185, 186, 187, 188, 189, 190, 191, 192, 193, 194, 195, 196, 198, 199, 200, 201, 202, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 208, 209, 210, 211, 212, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 227, 228, 229, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 236, 238, 239, 241, 242, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248, 249, 250, 251 252, 253, 254, 255, 257, 258, 259, 260, 261, 262, 263, 264, 265, 266, 267, 268, 269, 270, 271, 272, 273, 274, 275, 276, 277, 278, 279, 280, 282, 283, 284, 285, 286, 287.
