    This card set is new to me, I must say I'm quite ignorant about such things. Anyone have more info about them?

    I'm not aware of those either but, I do know that in the early to mid 1990s--there were several different sets of ww2 trading cards produced. I never bought any because they were always sold out where I saw them for sale at.

    I never heard or saw these cards. Were it trading cards like Topps baseball stars etc.?

    Have you tried sites as e-bay to find them?

    I have a box of over 1,000 of theses cards. They were found in my grandpa's attic. They depict pictures, scenes, deaths, heroes, and many other fortunate and unfortunate events that took place throughout the WW2. I was actually looking into selling them. A lot of the ones I have are still in the original packaging. Email me if you would like to inquire about them terrygrayston@hotmail.com

    If you have the ability to do so-why not post a few pictures of some of these? I myselfdon't have the ability (or know-how) to post pictures of the things I say I have-otherwise-I would gladly do so ;-)

    There were a number of these. I have a set that was taken in the upper Solomons Island chain for example. I don't know how many different ones are out there but I suspect there are quite a few.

    First, welcome to the forum. However, we are not equipped to be a valuation service. We have no way to judge your items, even with pictures. You would be better served to do some research on the material before you start requesting values. We would enjoy seeing them, but don't expect any attempts to place a monetary value on them.
