America at War: D-Day/Band of Brothers Ultimate Edition - iCardz

• Complete set of America at War: D-Day (143 cards).
• Complete set of Band of Brothers (49 cards).
• Deluxe metal binder.
• Two instant win cards (chance to win authentic medals and shoulder flashes from the Second World War)
All 7 authentic Band of Brothers autographs
An original sketch by Ingrid Hardy
• Certificate of Authenticity
• Numbered /100


At what breaks down to $50 a piece for the autographs and sketch, this is a steal.

The sketches are seldom seen on the secondary market and sell for $80+ each. Some of the autographs are very hard to find and I can not set a price on the Amos "Buck" Taylor since it has never shown up on the market (In fact, I know of only two people who own one of these cards).

iCardz has done something really special with this series that honors the Greatest Generation, and specifically, the Band of Brothers. Now, they have created this edition so that collectors can enjoy the complete set for a great price.

This set is available NOW from lestweforgetcardsus.com

This is a fantastic opportunity to own the complete set and I am of the mind that the more we support iCardz with this series, the more likely they will release The Pacific, and more.


Disclaimer: I do not work for iCardz although my enthusiasm for this series may make it sound like I do.
Regarding this series, please ask questions and I will try my best to answer.

I got mine ordered. I can't wait for it to ship. Nice way to get a full set since I have never seen any of the autograph cards listed. Thanks for the updates Nicnac.

Oh, WOW! My husband got me the set for my birthday and I got Sgt. Day's sketch.

I'm still going through it. What a beautiful set of cards. I will always it as, to me, touching those cards signed by the surviving members of Easy Co. is like touching history. I've already told them I'm putting it my will to my youngest son who ws in the 82nd Airborne for 10 years. He was the one who got me to read the book.

I received my set a month or so back and pulled a sketch of Private Joseph Lesniewski. I was wondering if Nicnac had any information on him? Thanks!

Aside from a short article on Wikipedia, which has the photo that your sketch is based on, I found this picture which contains a treasure trove of BoB vets:



(Sitting L-R): William Guarnere; Edward "Babe" Heffron; Lynn "Buck" Compton; William C. Maynard; Philip P. Perugini (holding the bucket?); Salvatore Frank Bellino; and Donald G. Malarkey.

(Standing, L-R): Antonio Garcia; Joseph A. Lesniewski ; Roderick G. Bain; John W. Martin; Frank J. Soboleski; Herbert J. Suerth; Paul C. Rogers; and Lester A. Hashey.

(Standing at the top): Forrest L. Guth and Darrell "Shifty" Powers.



This is pretty cool, an interview with him for World War II magazine:

Thanks for the info and the link Nicnac. It is nice to get some information on the man in the sketch card and I am so happy I bought the set. Getting the same autographs over and over in boxes and no sketches ever was getting me nowhere fast.

Congrats! What is Sgt. Day's full name? I can't find him in my lists of the Band of Brothers members...


I must have still be celebrating my birthday the day I made that post, NicNac. The sketch card I got is Capt. Edward A. Peters. Sorry for the confusion. *scratches head -- is still trying to figure out where "Sgt. Day" came from????*

I love the set. It's absolutely beautiful and it will become a family heirloom. (My kids are already fighting over who gets it when I'm gone. It goes to my youngest son who served as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne for over ten years. So, if they have any questions they can refer to this post. LOL)

Captain Edward A. Peters was killed in action 3 days after D-Day. I won't steal from his son, so here are his own words.

Make sure to click on the photos link at the bottom of that article.

You will notice a Roger Day in one of the pictures who is a WW2 historian and author.

Is this the photo that your sketch is based on?

I will not be updating this thread any more.

You may find me on some other forums where I maintain identical threads.

Thanks Bacall1, HPCollector2011, and Cardz_house...
