Calling All Monsters: Alien Invaders (Target, 1998, 48 card set), and Calling All Monsters: Mad Science (Target, 1999, 49 card set), are two retro style monster trading card sets featuring black and white monster movie photos with movie info on the backs. They feature monster flicks from the '50s-'70s. Some cool cards here. Scans of a sampling of my sets follow.

Rittenhouse Archives released a new Outer Limits Trading Card Set in 2002. The 72 card set covers 8 classic episodes from the original show, 9 cards per episode. This is a nice set, but it lacks the quirky charm of the classic Topps set. My cards 1-9 are shown below along with two wrappers.

Calling All Monsters: Alien Invaders (Target, 1998, 48 card set), and Calling All Monsters: Mad Science (Target, 1999, 49 card set),

I've got those. Really nice sets!

It's a good companion to the Topps set. I have this and the reprint of the Topps set.

The best thing about this set released by Fleer in 1965 is actually the wrapper, although the cards themselves are pretty good:







The set sold well enough though to spawn a sequel;

I never knew that they had Weird-oh gum or cards.  I must live on another planet.

I agree. Those wrappers are killer. I bought a box each of the reissued Weird-Ohs and Weird-Oh Baseball cards a couple of years ago off eBay and never did get around to opening the packs and making sets. The full boxes do look good displayed on the shelves, however.

I received my Heritage Mars Attacks set and thought I'd post some. This is a great set for anyone interested in owning a Mars Attacks set and can't afford to build an original one (who can?). The base set of 1-55 reprints the original set on thick cardstock. There is a 10 card Deleted Scenes subset, a 15 card New Universe subset, and a 5 card 3-D subset. Those 3-D cards are spectacular.

Spook Show (Monsterwax, 2011) is a 66 card set featuring spook show posters on the fronts and spook show info on the backs. This is one of the most fun monster items I've picked up in a long time. In each box you get at least one full 66 card set, all chase cards, an artist sketch card, either a metal printing plate or an autograph card by a spook show personality, 2 of the 6 promo cards, a faint pill, a $10,000 insurance policy against death by fright, one of 5 spook show tickets, and a Spook Show Sick Sack (barf bag). These cards are Spooktacular! (ouch).

If you mean "of" Hammer, I don't recall a set with just the Ladies.

Yeah, I meant ladies OF Hammer. Horror Hunter would know for sure. I mean, Hammer girls occupy 90% of his waking thoughts (maybe 30% of it for YUTTE!!!).

If it ain't in this list there probably isn't one.
