The 1965 Topps Battle Cards series is a gorgeous collection of trading cards featuring the work of pulp artist Norman Saunders. Saunders -- best known for his work on Mars Attacks and three of the five Batman series' from 1966 -- illustrated gory and sensationalized depictions of World War II in his classic style. Several cards include damsels in distress and American soldiers engaged in bloody fisticuffs with Nazis and Japanese fighters.

Each pack of cards included a cloth emblem of different divisions of the armed services. The emblems could be applied to surfaces by wetting the back.

Because of the cutting and inking quality of the era, it can be difficult to track down a complete set in top condition but fans of Saunders' pulp style artistry will want to have this in their collection regardless of card grade.

Our checklist includes all of the cards in this collection and the image gallery displays the entire set as well. Follow this hub using the button above and you will get automatic updates regarding this set when they become available via your "Following" page.
