Default Horrors of War - Total product / Remaining Pulls

I notice that there have been more Horrors of War breaks lately than there have been in a while, so I thought I'd make a post with the remaining "big" signatures not seen pulled and also try to make some estimation of total product that has been bought/open since its release.

Come next week, I will have personally opened 2 & 3/4 master cases.
Using a basic search, I estimate the following totals from other members:

Coltsnsox - 3 & 1/2 master cases
Steve W. - 1 master case?
Tim - 2 master cases?

I'll then estimate another 2 master cases worth of boxes I've seen bought/sold on eBay, BO, etc.

I'm aware that I may be missing some from other forum members. This, however, currently only amounts to around 12 master cases, or 30% of the run. If anyone KNOWS of others that I haven't accounted for, I would appreciate the info

He must think he has a rare signature, his signature only books for 200.00 since he was just a general during the war and a gov?

lol, that was my general impression when I came across it as well.

I have a few presidential cut sigs and the market just blows me away. I've been around enough to know what the general market is on certain cuts and I usually see the same group of people bid/offer on them. There are a handful that win them at market value and re-list them for 4x the money as if people are going to go bananas over them.(I'm talking like Taft, Hoover, Truman, cuts nothing super high end).

The markup on some of these history cuts is astronomical and they typically don't sell until the seller comes down to reality.

...and people think sports collecting is bad....

I would have LOVED to pull a Russian WWII out of the box I got, but I had to settle for a German Luftwaffe pilot.

Aside from Nikita Khrushchev, which names are you looking at? I am curious about any other "big name" pulls that I may have missed on the total checklist.


Thanks for the info on the Rumsfeld, BTW.

They really are not big names, but I was just informed Anatoly Kozlov has been pulled. So besides Nikita Khrushchev, Nikolai Vashugin and Nikolai Vatutin are the last two left. I was lucky to get the Georgy Zhukov cut signature.

Want to let collectors know that Horrors of War II is in the planning stages.

This release will also include on-card artwork of Jared Kelley and authentic military memorabilia.

There is no release date information at this moment as we acquire the cut signatures.

Brian Price


There is not much info out but it is in the works
Maybe early next year release....
