1951 Bowman Fight the Red Menace was a bit of Korean War propaganda in the style of more common WWII sets from several years prior.

The set included 48 cards depicting the Korean conflict, Cold War leaders, and nuclear threats in sometimes graphic detail — particularly graphic when you consider that the set is geared towards children as each card back contained the headline “Children’s Crusade Against Communism”.

The artwork is striking and highly graded cards can command a decent price tag.
