(Fight the) Red Menace
   Bowman Gum - 1951
   Reprinted and expanded WTW Productions / FTCC - 1985

Notes: The original 48-card release had color artwork on fronts and descriptive text 
on card backs, touting the "Children's Crusade Against Communism." When WTW 
released a reprint set in the 1980s in packs, it included 24 cards that were excluded 
from the Bowman set and an alternate card 23 with original artwork. All cards are 
approximately 2-3/8" x 2-1/2". Bowman cards were found with either white (cream) 
backs or grey backs. American Card Catalog reference is R701-12. Scans are posted 
at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.

Bowman packs: 5 cards + gum.
WTW box: 33 packs of 6 cards.
