Preview: Famous Fabrics Civil War Set

Next up for Famous Fabrics will be the Civil War release, set to release tomorrow. This product will be a little different compared to other recent Famous Fabrics products, the biggest change would be the pack out and price.
Each box will run $1,200-1,300 and contain 6 cards. Each box break will give you one Civil War Cut Signature (1/1), one Original Artwork Painted card (1/1) and four base cards (#/40). There will only be 150 boxes made so this is beyond an extremely rare release.
The base cards are limited to #/40 and there are only 15 cards on the checklist, mainly focusing on battles. Each base card will be encased and numbered.
There are 150 cut signatures and they are divided in to three designs; Union Cut Signatures, Confederate Cut Signatures and Gettysburg Commemorative Cut Signatures. Some of the names included on the checklist: Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, U.S. Grant, P.G.T. Beauregard and Robert E. Lee. The cards will be encased and number and each design will be a different color so Union signatures are blue, Confederate are gray and Gettysburg are brown.

The Original Artwork Painted cards have a 15 card checklist with each card #/10, though each card is painted individually. I believe Jared Kelley is one of the artists involved in the project. The art cards are dedicated to the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg so the 15 people included are connected to the battle; Lincoln, J.E.B. Stuart, George Custer, George Meade, George Pickett, James Longstreet, Jefferson Davis, John Buford, John Reynolds, Joseph Hooker, Joshua Chamberlin, Richard Ewell, Robert E. Lee, U.S. Grant, Winfield Hancock.
