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!

Continuing the Saga of "The Munsters" Coloring Book

From Whitman Publishing in 1965, here are more pages from this big fat coloring book, as processed through the hands of three generations and counting.
 As was a common trope on the TV show, normal-looking Marilyn has met a nice young man who becomes an admirer.
 So of course, he wants to meet her family -- little knowing how odd Marilyn's kin are.

That's all the original images for this visit ... below is one all cleaned up so that you can print your own coloring page for the kiddies ...



See you Friday!
