MONSTER MAGIC ACTION! CARDS

1960s, unlicensed, monster-related: the perfect ingredients for a cool collectible. Throw in some lenticular action, and now you're really talking. These cards are somewhat common among monster collecting circles, but the auxiliary materials aren't seen as often so I figured they're worth a post...

A sweet vending machine display

The box they shipped in featuring an awesome giant Frankenstein guy with a tiny man clinging to the back of his head.


So there you go. Post complete. Let's see, only 18 more to go.

These cards look like the sort of thing I would get a brief glimpse of while on vacation somewhere and never see again - and never forget!

I figured you would especially appreciate them Shawn.

flashfink- yeah, they're the sort of thing you'd try to explain to your friends after vacation and they would stare back at you like you're crazy.
And you start to wonder if you really just dreamed the whole thing.
