Monster Cards, Part 1

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.

See you Monday, my friends!

Mark,
Actually, I'm pretty sure that the cards you pictured are a later release done by Topps (TCG). There was a beautiful, glossy set of cards released in 1961-1962 by Leaf but they are called "Spook Stories."
