Here are more of the Topps Monster cards from the 1970s.
You will note two things about the card above and below. They're both numbered #11.
Also, somebody jiggered around with the photos! You can tell that the same guy's face has been airbrushed in on the right-hand side of the Jeckyll-and-Hyde card, and the Son of Frankenstein image just below. A second mystery man has been superimposed over the middle guy.
Below, a third man's face has been supered over Dr Mannering in this shot from Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.
Even the scene below from Frankenstein has been tweaked.
Here's the original photo, clearly showing Mae Clarke's face:
I don't know whose face was pasted in.
Thanks for joining me in this week's episode of, "They Messed with My Childhood."
I was blessed to have grown up in the middle of the 1960s monster
craze. "Baseball cards" had been around for years -- to an eight-year-old, the term encompassed
any sports card -- so the manufacturers branched out to take advantage of
another craze -- MONSTERS.
I came across these across the years; evidently they are from Leaf. One listing website is HERE.
These posts are just for fun!
Note that the "picture frame" art around the joke on the back side is by the great JACK DAVIS.
I was born at a very early age, in a hospital to be near my mother. After appearing in productions of both GODSPELL and JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR in the 1970s, I found a wonderful wife and wrote many love songs to her, but not as many love songs as I write to God my Savior and Redeemer. We have three kids (one of each) -- wait for it -- blonde, brunette, and redhead.
