The Insult Postcards are a fantastic set! Great artwork! I'm still looking for the wrapper.

These are the "apparition" cards from the early 60's game "Alfred Hitchcock presents WHY".
More of a curiosity than real monster stuff...

I felt like I was looking into the forbidden world of adults.


Well then now that you're an adult you might want to look into these two great books that are about the artwork found in men's adventure magazines with that of Norm Saunders prominently featured including on the cover:

Hepcat--- I have the IT'S A MAN'S WORLD book, it's fantastic. Don't have the other one yet, though.

I've always lusted after those green bordered Horror Monster cards. Never snagged any though. :/

I've got a bunch of these Toho monster cards. They're small and printed on thick card stock. I think they're from the '80's.



They came in paper envelopes that look like this...

I'm assuming these were marketed to kids and sold in the Japanese version of convenience stores. Was a complete set included in each envelope? If not, how many came in an envelope? Did they have numbers on the back?

They only came with three cards per envelope. On the back is writing all in Japanese. I can't remember if they are numbered or not, I'll have to check.

By "originals" do you mean the original art?

 ???

The Spook Stories cards were a huge part of my Monster Kid past. I remember buying dozens of those packs. Do you have any of the stickers? My first posts on the UMA consisted of my obsessively meticulous reproductions of those, via PhotoShop painting. I'll see if I can rustle up some of those...


Here then are more detailed scans of some of my Spook Stories cards, stickers and wrappers:











The Spook Stories were the first non-sport cards I collected aggressively as a kid.
