During 1950s, the Exhibit Supply Company issued this 32-card set of “Action in Korea” vending machine trading cards (arcade cards). This set is not an airplane card set, but we’ve decided to included it as a FYI reference card set. We know very little about the set except for the five reference cards (#3, #10, #15, #23, and #26) that we been able to obtain.
