Topps Monster Cards, Part 3

This mummy guy is NOT Karloff or Chaney, so I assume it's ye olde Stunte Manne.

  The card above is numbered 26, as is the card below.

 The "girdle" line is an often-references trope from the 1960s or 1970s, but I can's seem to track down its actual origin.  It's from a TV campaign.
 The guy's face, above, is another of those paste-ins.

See you on Monday!

John Alden looks more like a Jack-in-the-Green.

And our coloring page for this week:
Marilyn laments the ineptitude of their housekeeper.

See you on Friday with more Topps Monster Cards!
