When I was in grade school (early 50's) I remember buying what we now call collector cards (with bubble gum of course) and the cards were smaller ones, about 3" X 2" and were actual action shots of the Korean war campaign. They were original photos, probably from some military photographer and were most likely original black and whites but were "colored" by the print process. I have been at some collectable shows and talked to a number of card people and nobody seems to remember them. Any of you guys know what I'm talking about?
